1,000-yard duo

The Atlanta Falcons become just the fourth team in NFL history to feature a pair of players who've eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in the same season. Falcons' running back Warrick Dunn reached the 1,000-yard plateau against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 15. One week later, he was joined by Michael Vick, who became the first quarterback in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season.

The last time the feat was accomplished was 21 years ago when the 1985 Cleveland Browns had both Kevin Mack and Earnest Byner rush for 1,000 yards.

Here is a game-by-game breakdown of Warrick Dunn and Michael Vick's rushing totals thus far this season.
