From May 30 and every day until September 5… the start of the 2013 NFL season… Sports Stats ‘on Tapp’ will publish “99 Stats Until Kickoff” a daily dose of NFL stats that will get you ready for the 2013 NFL season.)
Over the past 13 seasons (since 2000), it seems that about half of the National Football League teams end the season with a 1,000-yard runner. The 2012 NFL season was no different.
Last season, 16 teams had a 1,000-yard rusher. The 16 1,000-yard rushers was the third lowest number since 1999 when 14 runners gained 1,000 or more yards rushing. Most 1,000-yard rushers since 2000? In 2006 there were 23.
