Do teams play with two running backs on the field at the same time often?

Kenyan Drake started very well with us last week vs the 49ers but David Johnson likely back this week

Splitting carries is fairly common (and likely what will happen with the Cards), but two running backs on the field at the same time is rare. You'll see it at the college level, where offences are more unbalanced, but in the NFL you'll pretty much only get one at a time. You'd almost always rather have a receiver, tight end or even a fullback rather than a second running back.

So, in process of grabbing an Arizona license and had to sit for a National test this morning at a law school near me. (They require a score 2 years or less—read: money grab)

I was wearing a Crows pullover and this kid (anyone under 28 is a kid to me) comes up and in a lovely Aussie accent asks incredulously—do I follow the footy?

Turns out he married an American and they relocated to the States. Said he backed Carlton and we talked Eddie and the Crows before heading into the classroom to take the exam.

Have to admit was nice talking about the sport with someone in person that was knowledgeable

Figured you all would enjoy that little side story :)

Went and did some work at half time Bama v LSU cos was thinking 33/13 was unassailable.
Must have been one of the games of the College ball season with Bama coming back but falling short 46/41
