Overlooked for too much of his incredible career, there is no denying Frank Gore's place in history now.

The Colts running back passed Jerome Bettis and LaDainian Tomlinson on Sunday in Jacksonville to become the fifth leading rusher in NFL history.

The run that put Gore ahead of Tomlinson was fitting. He saw the Jaguars' loaded front blocking his intended hole and then cut back through an arm tackle for 16 yards, falling forward a few yards after contact. Sadly, the Colts' 24-3 deficit and the lack of fanfare after the run was typical, too. So much of Gore's career has been about beating expectations after two torn ACLs in college and playing his heart out despite tough circumstances around him. (Gore has only played on three winning teams, all with Jim Harbaugh.)
