Dolphin RB 200 Yard Days

Reggie Bush's 203 yard effort against Buffalo this past Sunday makes him the 3rd Dolphin runner in team history to eclipse the 200 yard mark. Ricky Williams accomplished the feat twice and holds the team record of 228 yards and Lamar Smith had a 200 yard day against Indianapolis in the 2000 wild card playoff game Vs Indianapolis. Just like Bush's effort, Williams team record 228 yard day also came on a snowy December day in Buffalo.

Lamar Smith's 200 yard day on December 30th, 2000 was the first in team history. The closest any runner came in the previous 34 seasons was Mercury Morris, who rushed for 197 yards against New England on September 30th, 1973. Morris accomplished his 197 yard day on only 15 attempts. He did have a 70 yard TD run.
