Rookie RB Trio Ready to Set Record

Some rookie running backs in the NFL are having a great season. With 10 and 12 yards, respectively, RBs Steve Slaton (1,190 yards) of Houston and Matt Forte (1,188) of Chicago can join Tennessee’s Chris Johnson (1,228) as the first trio of rookie backs in history of the NFL to each rush for 1,200 yards.

The only other times two rookie backs rushed for 1,200 yards were in 1983 (ERIC DICKERSON; 1,808 and CURT WARNER; 1,449) and 2000 (MIKE ANDERSON; 1,487 and JAMAL LEWIS; 1,364).
