With his 33 carries on Sunday, Jerome Harrison set an NFL regular-season record for carries over a three-game stretch.
Over the final three games of the year, Harrison ran the ball 106 times. Only two other backs have gone over 100: Earl Campbell (103 carries, 1981) and Rodney Hampton (102 carries, 1993).
John Riggins holds the record including the playoffs; the Redskins' back recorded a whopping 111 carries during the 1982 playoffs, finishing with 38 in the Super Bowl XVII win over the Dolphins.

"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
