Ranking All 10 Seasons of Barry Sanders' NFL Career
At age 24, Sanders had his worst 16-game season. Then again, this Pro Bowl season would place him second in rushing yards (1,352) and eighth in rushing touchdowns (9) among running backs in 2016, so it's all relative.
He did his damage on 312 rushes, while also hauling in 29 catches for a total of 1,577 yards and 10 touchdowns. The problem was that he was less efficient in producing these numbers -- he tied a career-low with 4.3 yards per carry and coughed up the ball on six occasions, something he hadn't done since his rookie season.
