When Barry Sanders topped the 2,000-yard rushing mark in 1997 at the Silverdome during a late-season game vs. the New York Jets, it was the cause of a big celebration. Sanders was carried off the field on the shoulders of his linemen, who loved him. It had been much-anticipated.

When Matthew Stafford topped 5,000 yards passing in Green Bay Sunday, it didn’t get nearly as much fanfare.

Yet, the accomplishment can be looked upon as even more impressive.
