Doug Martin Becomes First Running Back With Three Touchdowns of 40+ Yards

Doug Martin, for the record books, with four touchdowns rushing, 251 rushing yards, and 273 yards from scrimmage. He had three highlight reel runs. Here’s a list of every running back since 1940 to have three touchdown runs of 40+ yards:

1. Doug Martin

Okay, so that’s pretty amazing. He didn’t quite catch Adrian Peterson for the single game rushing record, but no back had as many big touchdown runs in one game.

What if we just used fantasy scoring (1 point every 10 yards from scrimmage, 6 points per touchdown scored) to compile a list of the best running back performances ever?

1. Billy Cannon (330 yards from scrimmage, 5 total touchdowns, 63.0 points)

2. Gale Sayers (202 yards from scrimmage, 6 total touchdowns, 56.2 points)

3. Clinton Portis (254 yards from scrimmage, 5 total touchdowns, 55.4 points)

4. Abner Haynes (243 yards from scrimmage, 5 total touchdowns, 54.3 points)

5. Shaun Alexander (231 yards from scrimmage, 5 total touchdowns, 53.1 points)

6. Jim Brown (289 yards from scrimmage, 4 total touchdowns, 52.9 points)

7. Corey Dillon (276 yards from scrimmage, 4 total touchdowns, 51.6 points)

8. Doug Martin (273 yards from scrimmage, 4 total touchdowns, 51.3 points)
