Stat of the week

Stat of the Week

Kansas City's Jamaal Charles is trying to become the most dangerous back, per carry, of the past 50 years in the NFL. I looked at the best backs (minimum 10 carries per game, on average) for a single season since 1960, and Charles, with one game left, is right there with them:

Player, TeamYearAtt.YardsAvg.Rush TD
Jim Brown, Cleveland19632911,8636.4012
Mercury Morris, Miami19731499546.4010
Jamaal Charles, KC (Who)?20102161,3806.394
Barry Sanders, Detroit19973352,0536.1311
O.J. Simpson, Buffalo19733322,0036.0312

Amazing company for a player who turns 24 today -- and who shares the rushing job on the Chiefs with banger Thomas Jones.
