Justin Fields records 1,000 rushing yards on season


Make room, Lamar Jackson and Michael Vick. 

Justin Fields has 1,000 rushing yards on the season. 

"It means a lot," Fields said after the game. "I couldn't be here without God. I couldn't be here without my teammates and coaches. Them pushing me every day at practice. And them blocking for me on the field and blocking downfield. I couldn't be here without them. It's a great honor. It's really because of those guys."

The second-year signal-caller became the third quarterback in NFL history to record 1,000 rushing yards in a single season, eclipsing the mark in 14 games (played in 13).

Jackson has company, as Fields will have three more games after Sunday's matchup to overtake the once-MVP quarterback for his NFL record. Jackson has the NFL record for quarterback single-season yardage with 1,206 yards.

Fields also surpassed Bears quarterback Bobby Douglass earlier in the contest for most single-season rushing yards in franchise history, recording 976 rushing yards on the season before halftime. 

He eclipsed the Bears' franchise record on a dazzling, electric 39-yard non-touchdown run. He escaped a plethora of sack attempts and turned the broken play into a major gain. 

Fields is quickly becoming the best rushing quarterback in the league in the present day.
