Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

On September 14, 2003 Jamal Lewis stunned the football world with his performance against the Cleveland Browns. He rushed 30 times for 295 yards that day and scored two touchdowns on the ground, one of which came off an 82 yard run. Lewis broke the previously held record of 278 by Corey Dillon. That same year he broke the rushing record, in 2003, Lewis was named the AP Offensive Player of the Year. Four years later Adrian Peterson would go on to break Lewis' record by rushing for 296 yards against the San Diego Chargers. Lewis still holds the team record for most rushing yards in a single game.
