Marshall Faulk put on the Greatest Show on Turf. There’s always something that separates your good running backs from the legendary ones, and Faulk was a merciless playmaker. The all-purpose running back averaged 4.3 yards per carry and had 100 rushing touchdowns over his career.

Even in his “down” years, he racked up stats that many current Pro Bowlers have a difficult time achieving. By the end of his career, he became the number one running back in receiving yards and tenth all-time on the rushing list.
