The Philadelphia Eagles Michael Vick gained 90 yards on the ground during Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills. That total pushed him past Randall Cunningham to become the all-time rushing leader among quarterbacks in NFL history. Vick’s career total now stands at 4,948 yards rushing.

Steve Young’s 4,239 rushing yards are the most of any quarterback who has been enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Here is a comparison of the career rushing totals of the 23 modern-era QBs in Canton.
