Even as his peers that entered the NFL left long before him, Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore remains a constant source of greatness. Now the 36-year-old can add another feather to his Hall of Fame resume.

Gore started gashing the New England Patriots early on Sunday with big runs, including a 41-yard scamper that captured so much of what has made him great. Along the way, Gore became just the fourth player ever to eclipse 15,000 career rushing yards.

An NFL career that began with the San Francisco 49ers saw him serve as the driving force of the 49ers’ offense for a decade before joining the Indianapolis Colts and winning over the hearts of the fan base.

Now as Gore crosses off another historic mark on his incredible career, the entire NFL community could only help but appreciate everything he has done.
