As the NFL's all-time leading rusher, Emmitt Smith put together some incredible performances during his career. However, none compare to the season finale of the 1993 season.
During the game against the New York Giants, Smith took a hit and walked off the field with a separated shoulder. It wasn't long before Smith was back on the field, finishing the game with only one good arm.
The performance might not have been so gutsy if the player coming back played another position, but Smith was a running back, and the Dallas Cowboys pounded the ball with him. He took hit after hit after hit but still carried the ball and finished the game with 168 rushing yards and 10 receptions.
It was hard to not give Emmitt Smith the gutsiest performance in NFL history, but he will have to settle for second place because of this man...
