300 Yard Games

What is 300 Yard Games?

A 300 yard game is when an offensive player rushes 300 yards, passes 300 yards, or catches 300 yards worth of passes, in a single game.  It is a notable feat because no player has ever rushed for 300 yards, and only 4 players have ever racked up 300+ receiving yards.
