C.J. Spiller's jersey displayed in the Hall of Fame


C.J. Spiller has a presence in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and it took only a few days to get there.

Spiller's game-worn throwback jersey from Buffalo's 29-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday is now displayed in the Pro Football Hall of Fame for approximately the next calendar year. The Hall of Fame requested the jersey after Spiller became the first NFL player to produce a 100-yard kick-return touchdown and a 45-yard rush in the same game since 1973. Spiller produced a 102-yard kick-return touchdown in the third quarter and a 47-yard rush in the fourth quarter.

Houston Oilers running back Bob Gresham had a 103-yard kick-return touchdown and a 52-yard run against the Cincinnati Bengals on September 23, 1973.

The last Bills player to have a piece of memorabilia displayed in the Hall of Fame was running back Fred Jackson following the 2009 season. At that time, Jackson became the first player in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards and produce 1,000 kick return yards in the same season.
