Broncos Vs. Bills: Willis McGahee Surpasses 1,000 Yard Rushing Mark

Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee was close to 1,000 rushing yards heading into Saturday's game against the Buffalo Bills and it did not take him long to reach that milestone. A 24-yard first quarter carry pushed him past 1,000 yards, making McGahee the first Broncos running back to accomplish the feat since Tatum Bell in 2006. McGahee also made some history, as the Post's Lindsay Jones explains:

McGahee now has 1,000-yard seasons with the Bills (2004, 2005) and Baltimore (2007) to become only the second player in league history to hit that benchmark with three different teams. Ricky Watters did it with the Seahawks, Eagles and 49ers.

The Broncos have an early 7-0 lead on the Bills.
