Inside The Bills

Jackson 2nd only to Simpson

Fred Jackson has quickly climbed the ladder of best total yards from scrimmage seasons in Bills history this season. Heading into Sunday’s game against Washington he sat 8th all time among Bills all-time scrimmage yard leaders. Following his 194-yard effort he vaulted himself into second.

In games 1-7 in any Bills season, O.J. Simpson is still the leader with 1,106 yards from scrimage in 1975. But Fred Jackson has bested Simpson’s start to his 1973 season when he compiled 1,073 yards in the first seven games.

Jackson has 1,074 yards from scrimmage in his first seven games this season putting him in between Simpson’s two most productive years in a Bills uniform. Thurman Thomas’ MVP season of 1991 (1,032 yards) now stands fourth.
