The 20 Greatest Running Backs in NFL History

7. Marshall Faulk

Years Played: 1994-2005
All Time Stats: 12,279 Rushing Yards, 100 Rushing TDs, 4.3 Yards Per Carry
Accolades: 2000 Super Bowl Champion, 2000 NFL MVP, 7x Pro Bowler, 3x All-Pro

The centerpiece of the “Greatest Show on Turf” was a dual threat out of the backfield before it was the norm. During the Rams’ 1999 Super Bowl season, Faulk became only the second player ever to rush and catch for over 1,000 yards in the same season and set the single season yards from scrimmage record. He went for over 2,000 yards from scrimmage in four consecutive seasons during his peak and set the standard for versatility from a modern day running back.
