Wasn't sure what the answer was, and Google wasn't presenting any helpful results.

Thus, I took a guess, as I remembered that Shaun Alexander rushed for 201 yards during the week that the Thanksgiving games were played. Now that I have done some more research, it appears as if Shaun played that game on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, not on the holiday itself.

Yay, I just found out about trivia blitz last night.

I couldn't find independent confirmation that it was the most yards on T-Day but I couldn't imagine that it wasn't.
