Prior to Shaun Alexander, that was Terrell Davis of the Denver Broncos who led the NFL with 2,008 rushing yards in the 1998 season and played in Super Bowl XXXIII. The only other player to accomplish this is Emmitt Smith of the Dallas Cowboys who did it three times. He led the NFL with 1,773 rushing yards in 1995 and played in Super Bowl XXX, 1,486 yards in 1993 and played in Super Bowl XXVIII, and 1,713 yards in 1992 and played in Super Bowl XXVII.
