FRISCO, Texas, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Ezekiel Elliott isn't lacking confidence ahead of his first NFL playoff game.

Elliott led the NFL this season with 1,631 rushing yards and score 15 rushing touchdowns. While he's competing in his first postseason, he'll face a team led by two-time MVP and former Super Bowl champion Aaron Rodgers.

The Dallas Cowboys running back was in a minor car accident Wednesday, but tweeted that he has been in "bigger collisions." The two-car accident happened at 7:05 a.m. near the Cowboys' training facility in Frisco, Texas.

"You just hear from everyone that the game kind of picks up in the playoffs," Elliott told reporters in a conference call. "But we're not worried at all. We're going to go out and play ball like we've been doing all season. That's about it."

In the Cowboys' Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, Elliott rushed for 157 yards on 28 carries. The Cowboys host the Packers at 4:40 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15 in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs at AT&T Stadium.

"Ezekiel Elliott had a pretty good game the last time," Packers defensive end Letroy Guion told the Dallas Morning News. "But this time it's not going to be like that. Hopefully this time we come out fighting, get them off the field, get the ball to Aaron Rodgers and let him do his thing."
