    Record for fewest rushing yard allowed?

    I was doing some reasearch on ESPN to see how the Vikings 54 yards per game allowed rushing stacked up with some of the teams in the past.
    Well, the answer is they are the best since 2002.
    Its not even close.
    Since 2002, only the Vikings have allowed under 80 yards per game on the ground!
    My question is what is the all time record?

    Re: Record for fewest rushing yard allowed?

    I saw a stat somewhere, I think it was on pioneer press on line that if we hold the next three opponents to a combined 57 yards or under we will hold the all time record.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Re: Record for fewest rushing yard allowed?

    after looking it up a bit.
    it seems as though were in the running thats for sure.

    nfl.com only lists only lists the fewest yards per season.
    not average.

    Fewest Yards Allowed, Rushing, Season
    519 Chi. Bears, 1942 - 11 games 47.2
    558 Philadelphia, 1944 - 10 games 55.8
    762 Pittsburgh, 1982 - 9 games (strike year) 84.6

    703 - 2006 Vikings - 13 games so far 54.1 average

    I'll see if I can find anything else

    Yeah, you can't do total yardage. It has to be per game. If we give up 755 yards rushing this year that will give us an average of 47.185 and break the Bears all time record.

    Re: Record for fewest rushing yard allowed?

    also here is a list of rushing per season...

    http://www.nfl.com/history/leaders/rushingdefense

    and by looking at it wow, just wow were killing in rushing D.
    unless we just collapse in the last few games on that we will hold he record for rushing yards allowed per full season, and be pretty close to the hell only 3 other teams have gotten under 1000 in 70 years... thats mind boggling (not including the 9 game strike year)

    Exactly! I think this will be tough however because of Ahman Green and Stephen Jackson. Those are some really good RBs (Even though Green is down a little bit this year).

    The modern day record (since the nfl-afl merger) is held by the 2000 ravens who allowed 960 rush yards the whole season.Somewhere around 60 rush yards a game

    Re: Record for fewest rushing yard allowed?

    How bout we put our goal-line defence in on every play - just load up the line with 11 guys.

    And don't even bother covering anyone - who cares, we're not close to breaking the all-time passing defence record...

    Thanks PPE for the sig.
