Greatest Individual Seasons That Will Never Be Topped

Barry Sanders (1997)

Barry Sanders accomplished a massive feat during the 1997 campaign. By that point, Sanders had already established himself as one of the game’s best. However, his claim as the one of the great running backs of all-time was stamped with a jaw-dropping string of 14 consecutive 100-yard performances. Sanders rushed for just 33 and 20 yards in his first two games, but then scampered for 2000 yards over the final 14 contests.

A running back being able to stay healthy over a course of 16 games is difficult enough. To be productive 14 weeks in a row to that degree is a near impossible task. Sanders stayed healthy despite receiving a massive work load, and proceeded to gash defenses on a weekly basis.
