01:37 PM ET 12.16 | Trent Richardson hasn't been as explosive as Browns (and Crimson Tide) fans were hoping when the running back was taken third overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. Some point to his happy feet behind the line of scrimmage, his running style not fitting the blocking scheme or whispers of broken ribs. Through all that, Richardson has had no trouble finding pay dirt. Following a Kirk Cousins interception on the Redskins' second drive of Sunday's game that was taken to the six-yard-line by safety T.J. Ward, T-Rich took the next snap into the endzone, breaking the Browns rookie record for rushing touchdowns. His 10th score passes both Jim Brown and Eric Metcalf.

I wonder if he knows it's legal to tackle by the dreadlocks?

Brown had his in 12 games, I'm thinking.

Yea, they always conveniently forget how short NFL seasons were back then...like when Emmit Smith broke JB's yardage record, but it took a ton more games!! Nobody has had Jim Brown numbers in as few of games as he had.
