I’m still short on time, so let’s keep the trivia train rolling.  Yesterday, I looked at the players with the most receiving yards in their last 16 regular season games. Today, the players with the most rushing yards in their last 16 games.

Excluding LeSean McCoy, Adrian Peterson, and Doug Martin, only five players have rushed for over 1,500 yards in their final sixteen games.  The record-holder rushed for 1,702 yards in his final sixteen games.  Do you know who it is?

    I needed the hint on the last one and I whiffed on the second but I got the rest without hints.

    I thought Sanders and Sims were both going to be answers–I did not remember that Domanick Williams had that big of an end to his career, though I did remember it ending suddenly. I’m guessing it’s because that production was spread over two seasons (he only played 11 games his final year).

    Minor correction: “Domanick Williams (formerly Davis) rushed for 1,512 yards and gained 509 yards from scrimmage.” Should be 509 yards receiving.

      Williams ranks 7th all-time in yards per game and 5th all time in receptions per game among RBs. And unlike Billy Sims or, say, William Andrews, Domanick never made a pro bowl. Twenty years from now, someone is going to run a database query and ask himself “wait, who the hell is Domanick Williams (nee Davis)?”
