Really disappointed that AP didn't get it Sunday. He was so close. At least the Vikings made the playoffs though.

Walter Payton only once huh? And interesting to see how low this number was years ago, but I assume that is partly because they played fewer games.

Surprised Jerome Bettis didn't appear even once...but I guess that's what happens when your prime coincides with those of Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders.
