Browns’ Cribbs, Dolphins’ Williams set league records

A handful of players broke NFL or team records, or reached league milestones, in Week 15:

  • Browns ace Josh Cribbs broke and then extended his own NFL career kickoff return record, returning two for touchdowns in the 41-34 win over the Chiefs. Cribbs now has eight career kickoff returns for touchdowns during his five-year career. He set the league record with a 100-yard return during the first quarter — which he shared with Dante Hall, Gale Sayers, Mel Gray, Travis Williams and Ollie Matson — then added a 103-yard return in the second quarter. His two kickoff-return TDs in a game also tied the league record.
  • Dolphins RB Ricky Williams topped 1,000 yards for the season against the Titans, setting an NFL record for the longest span between 1,000-yard rushing seasons at six years. Williams, who has 1,055 yards this season, last reached the plateau in 2003 and now has five 1,000-yard seasons in his 10-year career.
  • Titans RB Chris Johnson posted his ninth consecutive 100-yard rushing game in Week 15, rushing for 104 yards against the Dolphins to tie for the third longest streak in NFL history. Johnson now trails only Barry Sanders (14 in 1997) and Marcus Allen (11 in 1985-86) in consecutive 100-yard games.
