      I had to dig for that one. Off the top of my head I thought maybe Floyd Little but then I started looking into it and realized they never made it to the "postseason" while he was playing.

            Sammy was one of my favorites. He had a great personality about him. He was under rated but solid. He didn't get a lot of yardage but when it was 3rd and short, he was the man.

            And I really loved his Mississippi Mud Walk.

            I try to award a CP to the correct guesser, but "I must spread around before giving to yardo again"

            So here is today's reward:

                      Darrien Gordon:

                      NOVEMBER 9 - Cornerback Darrien Gordon ties an NFL record by returning two punts for touchdowns in the same quarter, a feat previously accomplished just twice in NFL history. His scoring returns of 82 and 75 yards in the first quarter staked Denver to a 14-0 lead en route to a 34-0 defeat of Carolina. The two touchdown returns in a game also tie Rick Upchurch's franchise record, while his 168 punt return yards also set a new franchise standard, as Gordon wins AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

                          1998 AFC Divisional Playoff Game vs. Miami Dolphins

                          Saturday, January 09, 1999, 02:15 PM (Central Standard)

                          The Denver Broncos won their fifth straight postseason contest and advanced to the AFC Championship Game for the second year in a row with a record-setting 38-3 win over Miami in an AFC Divisional Playoff Game played before 75,729 raucous fans at Mile High Stadium.

                          The 35-point differential represented Denver’s largest margin of victory in a postseason game, and was punctuated by a defensive effort that limited Miami to just 14 yards on 13 carries for an average of 1.1 yards per rush — all of which set new franchise records. The three points allowed were also the fewest allowed by Denver in a postseason game.

                          The Broncos offense was just as sharp, putting points on the board in all four quarters, including 14 in both the first and fourth quarters. Denver’s two first quarter TD both came courtesy of T.D. himself -- Terrell Davis -- who scored on runs on 1 and 20 yards, the latter of which would qualify for any highlight film as Davis juked two Dolphins defenders with separate moves as he dashed to the end zone. Davis was, unequivocally, the offensive star, posting a franchise-record 199 yards on 21 carries, which also represented the fourth-highest single-game total in NFL postseason history. Davis, who moved into eighth place all-time in NFL postseason rushing in just his sixth game, had rushed for 129 yards by halftime to notch his first 100-yd. half in the postseason, to go along with 10 in the regular season.

                          Miami closed the gap to 14-3 in the second quarter, scoring it’s only points of the game on a 22-yd. Olindo Mare field goal, but Denver answered with an 11-play, 87-yard drive capped by Derek Loville’s 11-yard TD run to increase the lead to 21-3 at halftime. The Broncos pushed the margin to 24-3 early in the third quarter when Jason Elam converted a 32-yd. field goal, and put the game far out of reach early in the fourth quarter when John Elway hooked up with Rod Smith for a 28-yd. touchdown play that was his 25th career postseason TD, tying him for fourth-place all-time.

                          The icing on the cake was provided when Neil Smith picked up a fumble forced by Darrius Johnson at the Broncos’ 21-yd. line and ran it back 79 yards for his first career postseason and a 38-3 Broncos lead, that would stand up over the final 9:49 for Denver’s most lopsided postseason win.

                          Shannon Sharpe led all Denver receivers with five catches, while Smith was the top yardage-gainer through the air with 71 on four catches. Defensively, Darrius Johnson and Bill Romanowski each intercepted Dan Marino, with Johnson returning his pickoff 48 yards for the second-longest interception return in franchise postseason history.

                          OFFICIALS
                          Referee — Bill Carrollo (63); Umpire — Ed Coukart (71); Head Linesman — Tony Veteri (36); Line Judge — Mark Steinkerchner (84); Field Judge — Borris Cheek (41); Side Judge — Ken Baker (91); Back Judge — Jeff Triplette (42)

                                Correct Answers!

                                Miami Dolphins when Denver won in a rout 38-3

                                Well Done. Terrell was a mad man that day!! 199 yards on 21 carries gives him almost a 9-1/2 yards (9.476) average per carry. Unstoppable!
