Woolfolk Sets NFL Record
On Nov. 20, 1983, Butch Woolfolk sets an NFL record.
No one remembers the name Butch Woolfolk in NFL lore.
His one-hit wonder in the NFL was setting the record for in a single game Nov. 20, 1983.
The New York Giants shutout the Philadelphia Eagles 23-0 on two touchdowns and four field goals. for 159 yards and a touchdown. His per-carry average in that game was a cool 3.7 yards.
The record stood on its own for a year until James Wilder of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tied it Sept. 30, 1984. Jamie Morris of the Washington Redskins had 45 rushing attempts against the Cincinnati Bengals Dec. 17, 1988.
