After this Saturday's game against the Bills, Packers running back Dorsey Levens will have carried the ball almost as often during the 1997 regular season as he did in his previous seven years of college and professional football combined. In the six-year Mike Holmgren era, only once before had a player carried more than 300 times (Edgar Bennett, 316 in 1995, plus another 56 in three playoff games). By the end of the playoffs, Levens could tote the ball more than 375 times. Here's a look at Levens's rushing numbers since his freshman year at Notre Dame.
