Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore became the fourth player in NFL history to reach 15,000 rushing yards.

Gore, 36, joins Emmitt Smith (18,355 yards), Walter Payton (16,726) and Barry Sanders (15,269).

The milestone came on a 41-yard run in the second quarter.

He was 88 yards shy of 15,000 entering the game.

Along with crossing 15,000 yards, Gore finished the first half with 252 yards on the season, the most in the first four games for a player at 36 or older in NFL history.

Among the first to congratulate him was his son, Frank Jr.
