NFL All-Time Records: Blake Bortles now has the third-highest yards-per-carry average among any quarterback ever

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at New York Giants Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Blake Bortles had the longest play from scrimmage in a Week 1 win over the New York Giants — a 41-yard dash to midfield. It was a good play. A fun play, even. But it catapulted Bortles into the record books.

As of right now, Bortles has totaled 1,452 rushing yards on 227 carries, good for 6.40 yards per carry. It’s the highest among active quarterbacks with at least 200 rush attempts and the third-highest in NFL history among quarterbacks with at least 200 rush attempts.

The two quarterbacks higher? Mike Vick (7.00) and Bobby Douglass (6.47).

Go Jaguars.
