    and my wife has him on her Fantasy Football team. She saw the numbers and asked me “Who is Jamal Lewis? I think 297 yards is good, right?”

    sigh

  2. Bryan says:

    I think you should have to get those yards against an NFL team before they’ll count as a record.

  3. Chris says:

    Go Jamal, Go Jamal,

    Yes, He’s on my fantasy team too. I WAS in last place.

  4. Dave W says:

    Jamal Lewis is back! Now if the Ravens could just come up with a quarterback that can actually complete a pass once in a while, then we might actually have a team that can go somewhere.

    Redman and Boller were almost painful to watch today. They are lucky their pathetic performances were buried under the news of Jamal’s incredible performance.

  5. Dave says:

    Interestingly enough, Lewis had another run of 60+ yards called back because of offensive holding. Imagine how good his day could have been.

  6. NFL Record? Or Not?
    James at OTB notes that Jamal Lewis set an NFL record for single-game rushing yards against the second incarnation of the Cleveland Browns. I content that James will have to gain some yards against an NFL team before they count…
