Video: Barry Sanders congratulates Bills’ Frank Gore on passing him on NFL’s career rushing list

Frank Gore, Barry Sanders

Frank Gore rushed for 65 yards in the Buffalo Bills’ victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday, surpassing Barry Sanders for third all-time in NFL history. Shortly after the game, Sanders congratulated Gore on passing him on the NFL’s career rushing list.

It has been quite the career for Gore, who now has a grand total of 15,289 rushing yards so far in his career. Before Gore moved into third all-time, Sanders had accumulated 15,269 yards in his career with the Detroit Lions.

At 36-years-old, Gore continues to defy the narrative that running backs can’t be productive in their 30s. This season alone, Gore has rushed for 541 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

Those numbers are impressive considering the fact that he’s shared carries with rookie Devin Singletary. With Gore advancing into third all-time in rushing yards, he is continuing to cement himself as a future Hall-of-Famer.
