More about Player Rushing Big Plays Statistics

A big play by a rusher is generally thought to be a run that gains 10 yards or more.  League leaders will generally have 40 plays of 10 or more rushing yards per season. Of course, not all “big plays” by this definition are equal – an 80 yard touchdown run is much more valuable to a team than a run-of-the-mill 10 yard run.  Nevertheless, rattling off multiple 10 yard runs can lead to a defense bringing its linebackers closer to the line of scrimmage than they’d prefer which can help open up the passing game for a team.
