— Four decades ago, Buffalo Bills' running back O.J. Simpson became the NFL's first rusher to eclipse 2,000 yards in a single season. The six backs who have since reached that milestone tell the stories from their historic seasons at 9 a.m. Sunday on ESPN's “Sunday NFL Countdown.” Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, a former OU star, on reaching 2000 yards in 2012: “It's kind of like experiencing an out of body experience. It's kind of like someone is doing the work for you. I'm big on faith, so I say my guardian angel was activated during that season and you just get into a feel and you just roll with it.”
