Willie Parker Breaks Pittsburgh Steelers' Single Game Rushing Record

Pittsburgh Steelers running backs are supposed to be big and strong, rugged and durable, perfect symbols like Jerome Bettis and Franco Harris of a tough-as-it-gets franchise. Willie Parker is much different, and he finds himself in their record book because of it. Parker broke the Steelers' single-game rushing record with 223 yards against the Cleveland Browns 27-7 Thursday night. Parker, the first player in Steelers history to have two 200-yard games in a season, broke John "Frenchy" Fuqua's record of 218 yards. (Yahoo! Sports)
