Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson was big factor in Minnesota’s 34-6 win last Sunday versus the St. Louis Rams. Patterson had 176 total yards and scored a TD on a 67-yard run. While Patterson only had three receptions for 26 yards, the wide receiver took three handoffs and gained a total of 102 yards rushing, leading the team in that category.
Patterson’s 102 yards on only three rushing attempts was historic. It was only the second time in the NFL (since 1960) that a player rushed for 100 or more yards on three or fewer rushing attempts. It was also only the fourth time in the league that a player had 100-plus rushing yards with less than five carries.
Here’s a look at the four players who have gained 100 or more yards rushing with five or fewer rushing attempts in a game.
