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.
