TD scorers: Most productive in NFL history

Cold, Hard Football Facts for May 22, 2007



Here's a look at the all-time Top 10 scoring machines in NFL history.
 
As you'll see, it's dominated by running backs. In fact, All-Time 11 member Don Hutson and Terrell Owens are the only pure pass-catchers on the list. Until 2005, the great Jim Brown, another member of the All-Time 11, was the only player in NFL history to average better than 1 TD per game over the course of his career.
 
He picked up some company in recent years, as Shaun Alexander set a single-season TD record in 2005 (28), only to watch LaDainian Tomlinson break that record in 2006 (31). Take note, too, of former Colts great Lenny Moore. He may have been the most lethal two-way threat in NFL history, the one guy who could score nearly as well through the air as he could on the ground.
