Longest ones I could find:
1. 32 Yards - Michael Strahan/Jake Plummer/Holmes - Strahan stripped the ball and it was recovered by Holmes and tackled immediately by Strahan. Strahan credited with a 32 yard sack. 2001
2. 29 Yards - Bob Griese - Super Bowl VI - 1972
3. 27 Yards - Peyton Manning - IND vs. BAL 2001
4. 26 Yards - Eli Manning - NYG vs MIN 2007
Edit: I read the article incorrectly. Holmes was a NYG and recovered the fumble for the Giants. I went and looked at the play by play and I still don't understand exactly what the hell happened.
Here is the play from NFL.com:
(10:41) (Shotgun) J.Plummer sacked at NYG 12 for -5 yards (M. Strahan). FUMBLES (M. Strahan), RECOVERED by NYG-K. Holmes at NYG 33. K. Holmes to NYG 45 for 12 yards. Lateral to M. Barrow to ARI 42 for 13 yards (M.Jenkins).
Here is the article I orginally discovered:
Michael Strahan's sack of Arizona's Jake Plummer in the second quarter was his 15th of the season, equaling his career high, set in 1998. Because Strahan stripped Plummer of the ball, which rolled backward and then was recovered by the Giants' Kenny Holmes, Strahan was credited with a 32-yard sack. The Giants scored a touchdown five plays later to lead, 14-0.
Now the game center for NFL does have the Sack/Yards total for ARI at: Times Sacked (Number-Yards) 2 - 37
There was an obvious sack earlier in the game for -11 yards so maybe that means the sack was only 26...if the play started on the 7 and was recovered on the 33...
