Former Kohawk Jackson stymies Bears

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (KWWL) -  Fred Jackson's age isn't a factor. The NFL's oldest running back still made the biggest play of the game as the Buffalo Bills won for the first time ever in Chicago, 23-20 in overtime.

With the Bills driving for the game winning score, the 33 year old Coe College alumnus took the handoff, broke through the line, headed for the sideline and rumbled 38 yards to the one yardline. Two plays later, Dan Carpenter would hit the game-winning walk-off field goal.

"I'm old, but I can still play,"said Jackson, "I've just got to give a lot of credit to the offensive line. They did a tremendous job on that play. They got me one on one with the safety, and anytime they do that I've got to make a play. That play goes on to them."


Jackson is currently in his 8th year in the National Football League.
