Kansas City / 100-yard runners
Posted Mar. 18 at 10:46 AM
Kansas City moved to improve its offensive line yesterday signing Eric Winston. He played right tackle last year for Houston, helping that team put together a great running game.
Kansas City also has added Peyton Hillis, and it has Jamaal Charles coming back from a knee injury. Things are looking up, it seems, for this team’s running game.
It’s a franchise that has a history of running the ball well. Over the last 10 years, in fact, Kansas City has had more runners go over the 100-yard mark than any other team.
MOST 100-YARD RUSHING GAMES, 2002-2011
62 Kansas City
56 NY Giants
56 San Diego
46 NY Jets
44 Green Bay
43 St. Louis
40 San Francisco
38 New Orleans
33 Tampa Bay
27 New England
Note: there have been 1,406 100-yard games in the last 10 years. That’s out of 5,120 games total – so about one out of four. There’s about a 27 percent chance each week that a team’s featured runner will go over 100 yards.
