    Dolphins | Stat change gives team positive rushing yards for Week 11
    Mon, 20 Nov 2006 19:30:43 -0800

    Judd Zulgad, of the Star Tribune, reports Elias Sports Bureau made a change Monday, Nov. 20, to give the Miami Dolphins four yards rushing during the Week 11 game instead of minus-3 yards rushing. Elias changed a 7-yard rushing loss by QB Joey Harrington to a sack.

    That's too bad. But actually I'm getting more interesting in who got a sack recorded out of it?

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I'm not sure who got the sack.
    Judd mentions below that the team gets the sack, whatever that means.

    Change in the stats

    by Judd Zulgad

    Elias Sports Bureau, the NFL’s official statistician, made a change today that will give Miami 4-yards rushing in Sunday’s victory over the Vikings instead of the negative-3 yards the Dolphins were originally credited with getting.

    What happened? Elias changed a 7-yard rushing loss for Miami quarterback Joey Harrington to a sack, meaning that doesn’t count against the Dolphins’ total.

    Miami’s minus-3 yards had been the lowest for any team since 1961, when Philadelphia had minus-12 yards against Washington. But the revised stats make the Vikings’ accomplishment a little less impressive.

    The last performance of 4-yards rushing by a team came on Sept. 24, 2000 when Cincinnati registered that total in a 37-0 loss against Baltimore.

    The sack of Harrington was credited to the team. It was the Vikings’ only sack of the game

    Well that means that he ran in to a pile of bodies.

    So noone gets the individual stat. It'll show up in the team statisticks though.
