Despite his notable season, critics still spoke about how he only finished with eight total touchdowns. Those critics were in for a surprise as the following season Portis broke the Redskins’ franchise record for the most rushing yards in a season with 1,516 yards. He also went onto tie the most 100+ yard games in a season with 5.

After six remarkable years with the Washington Redskins, Portis decided to hang up the jersey and announce his retirement on August 21, 2012. He was 77 yards short of the 10,000 yards rushing mark, making him 27th all-time rusher.
