Shaun Alexander racked up 201 rushing yards last night in their win over the Packers. It was the fourth most rushing yards in a Monday night game. Coincidently, he also owns the record for the fourth most yards gained in a single game. In 2001 Shaun Alexander gained 266 yards when Seattle played Oakland.
Just FYI here are the top 5 all time leaders in yards gained in a game:
- 278 Yards by Corey Dillon – Cincinnati vs Denver (10/22/00)
- 275 Yards by Walter Payton – Chicago vs Minn (11/20/77)
- 273 Yards by O J Simpson – Buffalo vs Detroit (11/25/76)
- 266 Yards by Shaun Alexander – Seattle vs. Oakland (11/11/01)
- 251 Yards by Mike Anderson – Denver at NO (12/3/00)
I wonder if anyone will ever break 300 yards?
I think Bo Jackson probably would have broken the 300 yard mark if his carreer had not been cut short, what do you think?
