"It felt good," Stewart said. "While you're in the moment, you're really not thinking about it. Once things settle down, you just kind of let it wing around and you're thankful."
Stewart's single-game total broke Williams' old mark of 186 yards set against Tampa Bay last season.
Miami's Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris formed the first running back duo to rush for 1,000 yards each in 1972. Franco Harris and Rocky Bleier did it for Pittsburgh in 1976. Earnest Byner and Kevin Mack did it for Cleveland in 1985, and Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward of the Giants did it last year.
Atlanta also had two 1,000-yard rushers in 2006 with running back Warrick Dunn and quarterback Michael Vick.
