Gore has 88 yards in the 1st half

Arizona Cardinals v San Francisco 49ers

Heading into Week 4 former San Francisco 49ers running back and future Hall of Famer to be Frank Gore needed 88 yards to reach 15,000 rushing yards for his career. Well, he did that in the first half. Gore had a 41-yard run where he broke a few tackles to reach 15,000 rushing yards. Here’s the play.

Gore becomes the fourth player to reach 15,000 career rushing yards in NFL history. The three other players are Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, and Barry Sanders. They’re all in the Hall of Fame.

Sanders has 15,269, so there’s a strong chance Gore surpasses that total this season. As for the Hall of Fame, it’s only a matter of when for Gore. You saw that 41-yard run. That doesn’t look like a guy slowing down any time soon, despite being 36-years old— what an incredible career.
