No idea (I could look it up, of course). But going by your avatar I'm gonna guess. . .Walter Payton!

Eric Dickerson had that big game against them in the 80s. The Doomsday Defense was always known for limiting an opponent's ground game. I don't recall anyone doing it in the 60s or 70s?

This is close. I never really considered it, but the Cowboys played 29 playoff games before allowing a 100-yard rusher. Kind of remarkable (although the 73 Vikes ran them out of the stadium).

I guessed him because I remember the long TD run near the beginning of the game and I remembered he seemed to have a pretty good day after that....

I presented a friend of mine with this question and after doing some research he told me that Leroy Kelly probably would've been the first to do that back in the 1960s had the Browns stuck to their run game in a loss to that team based in Texas. But they got blown out which led my friend to surmise that L.K. (who gained 96 yards that day) was "left out in the cold" as the Browns tried to mount a comeback.

Name the first two players to appear in a Super Bowl first for an AFL team, and then later for and NFL/NFC team.
