Detroit Lions legendary running back Barry Sanders is widely considered to be both one of the greatest college football and NFL RBs in the history of the game, and he certainly reminded the Dallas Cowboys defense of that with this near-humiliating rushing touchdown.

It's not hard to see how Sanders never rushed for fewer than 1,115 yards in any of his 10 career NFL seasons with moves like this.

At one point, Sanders is practically surrounded by a collapsing tunnel of Cowboys defenders just beyond the line of scrimmage, but he simply takes a massive leap backward and then kicks it back into sixth gear in a matter of seconds to burn the rest of the secondary on his way to the end zone.

It's seems fair to say that, at the very least, if these eight Cowboys defenders that whiffed on tackling Sanders during this run didn't think he was one of the greatest before, they probably do now.
