Explanation:

Each individual rush is considered on it's own, and measured by it's "success." A run is considered successful if it gets 40% of the yardage needed to move the chains on first down, 60% of the yardage needed on second down, and 100% of the yardage needed on third or fourth down. This is a much more accurate overall picture of how well a running back does in a game than just the total yardage or ypc averages because it ignores big run outliers that can skew those kinds of stats

It was easily CJ's most successful (by this metric) game of the season.  Could that have been because of the threat that a certain receiver poses to take the ball deep and take the top off the defense?  Probably, but that threat might not prove as beneficial IF THEY NEVER LOOK AT HIS SIDE OF THE FIELD!!!!!!!!1
