25 Pre-Integration Sports Records and Achievements That Are Overrated

22. 29 Points in One NFL Quarter

Team/Player: Don Hutson
Date: 10/7/1945

In a team game like football, 29 points for one person is pretty much unheard of no matter what era you play in. For Don Hutson, who is considered by most to be the first true wide receiver in the history of football, it was just another day at the office; the Packers legend still owns a host of NFL receiving records. However, he also set these records before the NFL began to truly integrate African-American players in 1946. It's fair to assume that if Hutson had someone like Darrelle Revis or Charles Tillman blanketing him, some of those records would not exist.
