If Ezekiel Elliotts goal was to bring more attention to the Salvation Army when he celebrated his second-quarter touchdown Sunday night, consider it a success.

Lt. Colonel Ron Busroe, a spokesman for the Salvation Army, told TMZ Sports that the organization has insured a 61 percentage increase in online devoting since Sunday night.
