Leon Washington Gets Near Record Yardage

Posted by Gary Glenn on December 12, 2013 – 12:45 pm

_N8U7802In only his second game with the team, returner Leon Washington put up big numbers last week at Denver. He returned five kickoffs for a total of 209 yards, including a 95-yard return to help set up a touchdown.

Washington’s 209 kickoff return yards made up the third-highest single-game total in franchise history and the most since Bobby Jancik’s team-record 240 against Oakland on Dec. 22, 1963.

Washington’s 209 kickoff return yards are the third-highest NFL total this season, trailing only Devin Hester’s 249 (Sept. 15 against Minnesota) and Cordarrelle Patterson’s 228 (Oct. 27 against Green Bay).

Most kickoff return yards in a single game, franchise history:

240 (8 returns, 30.0 avg.) – Bobby Jancik at Oakland (12/22/63)
221 (8 returns, 27.6 avg.) – Bobby Jancik vs. Boston (12/06/63)
209 (5 returns, 41.8 avg.) – Leon Washington at Denver (12/08/13)
196 (3 returns, 65.3 avg.) – Ken Hall at N.Y. Titans (10/23/60)
196 (6 returns, 32.7 avg.) – Adam Jones vs. Jacksonville (11/20/05)
