Calvin HillOne number that may surprise a few is the Cowboys’ record when Calvin Hill rushed for 100 yards in a game. Between 1969 and 1974, Hill gained 100 yards 19 times, and the Cowboys won 18 of those games.

Julius Jones has eight 100-yard games in his short career. If he can manage three more this season, he will rank fourth on the team’s all-time list.
