The year was 1973, and O.J. Simpson was riding high with the Buffalo Bills. In a December 16th game against the New York Jets, Simpson ran for 200 yards in a Buffalo win. With that effort, he set an NFL record with 2,003 yards for the season. Going into the game, Simpson needed 61 yards to break the single-season record of 1,863 yards set by the great Jimmy Brown in 1963.
