Buccaneers vs. Raiders 2012: Doug Martin scores from 70, starts breaking records

Ezra Shaw

Doug Martin has three touchdown runs of 40 or more yards Sunday after rumbling for 70 yards in his latest masterpiece, thoroughly shredding the Oakland Raiders' defense.

Doug Martin is your fantasy all-star in Week 9 folks. After already ripping off runs of 45 and 67 yards, he burst through the middle of the line again late in the third quarter and ran for 70 yards and a touchdown. All three of his runs went for touchdowns, and though the 70-yarder didn't feature any monster stiff-arms, it gave him 244 rushing yards on 18 carries and showcased his sprinter speed.

Martin has already eclipsed the Buccaneers' record for rushing yards in a game, and he's 52 yards behind Adrian Peterson's NFL record of 296 yards. Martin can't get the rookie record without breaking Peterson's, either, because AD got his as a rookie, too.
