Jackson’s start among Bills best

Posted by Chris Brown on October 10, 2011 – 9:46 am

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.

  1. O.J. Simpson                      1973       861
  2. O.J. Simpson                      1975       842
  3. Thurman Thomas             1991       814
  4. Fred Jackson                      2011       712
  5. Thurman Thomas             1989       660
