A Running Back First

Never before have I witnessed a running back carry the ball 21 times and finish the game with negative yardage until today.  Rashard Mendenhall was facing the Ravens defense (44/44) and ran in “C” throughout the game.  To make matters worse, he did hit a “2” for a breakaway run but it only resulted in a 3-yard touchdown.  A breakdown of his carries are as follows:

6, 0, -5, 2, 2, 6, -12, -3, 1, 0, 3, -1, -5, 0, 0, 2, 5, 0, 0, 1, -10 = -8
