Since 1950, there have been only 24 seasons where a team’s rushing leader rushed for more yards than its passing leader gained through the air. The last team to accomplish this feat was the 2009 Titans, when Chris Johnson rushed for 2,006 yards. That year, the Titans split the duties at quarterback, with Vince Young throwing for 1,879 yards and Kerry Collins finishing with 1,225.
Can you guess which team had the largest differential?
Here’s the full list:
Since 2009, the closest any team has come was the 2012 Chiefs, when Jamaal Charles rushed for 1,509 yards and Matt Cassel led Kansas City with 1,796 passing yards. Last year, the “closest” situation was in Washington, when Alfred Morris rushed for 1,074 yards, and Kirk Cousins led the team with 1,710 passing yards.
