Martin broke loose for the Buccaneers on Sunday as he ran for 251 yards — a new Tampa Bay record — and four touchdowns. His first three scores came off runs of 45, 67 and 70 yards — all in the second half. Martin added his fourth touchdown in the waning moments of Tampa Bay's 42-32 win over the Raiders on a one-yard score to seal the game.
The rookie out of Boise State would have had even more yards if he hadn't lost 14 on the Bucs' final drive to kill out the clock. Martin was the No. 31 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft. He now has 794 yards and seven touchdowns on the season. His first 100-yard rushing day came last week against the Vikings when he ran for 135 yards and one touchdown. The big day put him one yard above Alfred Morris as the NFL's leading rookie rusher.
