Maurice Jones-Drew ended the regular season with 1606 rushing yards, good enough to make him tops in the league.  That’s only 10 yards behind Arian Foster’s 2010 rushing title and 242 yards more than this year’s second place finisher, Ray Rice. Peter King had an excellent assessment of MJD’s season in this morning’s MMQB.

Maurice Jones-Drew and his rushing title. I don’t know why I find such justice in that. I think it’s because this was a year when the game was turning to the air so much, and the Jaguars had a chance to win only when the ball was in Jones-Drew’s hands. There were only two teams in football that had the running game as their primary means of ball-movement: Jacksonville and Denver.

Peter King also touched on the significance of locking this title up against Jacksonville’s divisional rival, the Indianapolis Colts.

And it was significant to him that the winning effort came against Indianapolis. He hates the Colts, and always will, because they drafted Joseph Addai over him in 2006. “Every game I ever play against the Colts will be special, and I don’t care what’s at stake,” he said. “I always have something to prove against them.”

The NFL rushing title is in good hands.
