Notes

  • Minimum 100 yards except when sorting by touchdowns.
  • Ties go to the most recent occurrence.
  • As of 10/22/2016, several inconsistencies/errors were found in the 10/17/2016 Records & Stats Supplement 100-Yard Rushers section (pp. 9-13). Given the data I have access to (previous media guides, newspaper articles, and published season yardage totals), this list should be the most accurate available.
