Bills fans at this Sunday's game could witness a bit of history.

Running back LeSean McCoy is 39 rushing yards away from joining the 10,000 rushing yard club. In the history of the NFL, only 29 running backs have ever accumulated over 10,000 career rushing yards. This Sunday, McCoy could become number 30.

"That would be cool, that would be dope," McCoy said Wednesday. "I look forward to doing that. That's one thing that, when I leave this game, I want my name to be recognized with a lot of the other top backs. I think it's really important to be a top back in your era, in your time."

Right now, with 9,961 yards, McCoy is sandwiched in between Clinton Portis (9,923) and Ricky Williams (10,009) on the all-time rushing chart. He would be the third Bills running back to break 10,000 yards.

On the year, McCoy has already surpassed the 1,000 yard mark -- the sixth time he's rushed for more than 1,000 yards in a season in his career.
