Due to the emergence of David Johnson, Ezekiel Elliott and Jay Ajayi, Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell sometimes gets pushed aside when talking about the league’s best running backs. It’s safe to say that shouldn’t happen.
Bell turned in a historic performance against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, carrying the Steelers to a 27-20 victory. He rushed for 236 yards, which is the most in franchise history. The previous high was 223 by Willie Parker.
Additionally, that’s the highest total ever allowed by the Bills. Ricky Williams rushed for 228 against Buffalo in 2002.
The shifty back also added 62 yards receiving, giving him 298 from scrimmage for the game. Bell scored all three of Pittsburgh’s touchdowns.
He’s already on a historic pace, racking up the most yards from scrimmage in a player’s first 10 games of a season.
To further put into perspective how outstanding his Sunday performance was, he made history as the first player with 220 rushing yards, 60 receiving yards and at least three touchdowns.
The Bills (and the snow) were no match for a motivated Le’Veon Bell.
