Fred Jackson is ranking high on another Bills team list with his big 196-yard effort Sunday, in addition to being among the league leaders in total yards from scrimmage.
Jackson’s 712 yards from scrimmage through the first five games of 2011 are the fourth-most in team history. He’s the first player with 700 or more yards from scrimmage in Games 1-5 in 20 years – Thurman Thomas in 1991, and that was Thurman’s MVP season (hint, hint).
Here’s the rundown of best five-game starts in Bills history for total yards from scrimmage.
- O.J. Simpson 1973 861
- O.J. Simpson 1975 842
- Thurman Thomas 1991 814
