On August 31, in Georgia's season opener at Clemson's Memorial Stadium, Gurley led the Bulldogs with a career-high 154 rushing yards on 12 carries and two touchdowns. Even though the Bulldogs lost the game 38–35, Gurley had an impressive performance against Clemson which included a 75-yard touchdown run early in the first quarter.[18] In 10 games, he rushed for 989 yards on 165 carries with 10 touchdowns.[19] After the season, Gurley was named Second-Team All-SEC by the Associated Press.[20]

Gurley was selected in the first round with the 10th overall pick by the St. Louis Rams in the 2015 NFL Draft.[30] He was the first running back to be selected in that year's draft.[31] Gurley's rehabilitation went ahead of schedule and during the team's preseason, while he did not play, he practiced without pads on. Soon after, Gurley was medically cleared for full contact by St. Louis team physicians.

2015 season: Rookie year

On September 27, 2015, Gurley made his NFL debut against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was eased into action and finished the game with six rushes for nine yards in the 12–6 loss.[32] The following week, the Rams visited the undefeated Arizona Cardinals for an NFC West divisional matchup. Gurley started slow with just two rushing yards at halftime, but rushed for 144 yards in the second half as the Rams edged the Cardinals by a score of 24–22.[33][34] The next three games against the Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns, and the San Francisco 49ers would see Gurley rush for at least 128 rushing yards per game.[35][36] He scored his first NFL touchdown on October 25, 2015 against the Browns. With 566 yards in his first four NFL starts, Gurley became the most prolific rusher in his first four NFL games since the AFL–NFL merger.[37] Following the 27–6 win over the 49ers in Week 8, Gurley's jersey and cleats were inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.[38]

In Week 9, Gurley was held to 89 yards in the Rams' 21–18 overtime loss to the Minnesota Vikings.[39] In Week 10, he was contained to just 45 rushing yards in a 37–13 loss to the Chicago Bears.[40] In Week 11, Gurley rushed for 66 yards against the Baltimore Ravens and scored a touchdown in a 16–13 loss.[41] In Week 12, Gurley was limited to 19 yards in a 31–7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.[42] The following week, he was held to 41 rushing yards on nine carries in a blowout loss at home in the second divisional matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.[43] In Week 14, Gurley rushed for 140 yards in the Rams' 24–14 win over the Detroit Lions.[44] In Week 15, Gurley rushed for 48 yards, scored a touchdown, and became the third rookie in Rams history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season (Jerome Bettis and Eric Dickerson) in a 31–23 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (in what was the franchise's last home game in St. Louis before moving to Los Angeles for the 2016 season). In Week 16, Gurley rushed for 85 yards in a 23–17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, becoming the second Rams rookie, the first being Dickerson in 1983, to rush for 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns.[45]

Gurley finished his rookie year with 1,106 rushing yards and ten touchdowns on 229 attempts despite making only 12 starts (he sat out the Rams' season-ending loss at San Francisco).[46] On December 22, 2015, Gurley was selected to be part of the 2016 Pro Bowl along with fellow Rams players defensive lineman Aaron Donald and punter Johnny Hekker. Gurley was one of the five rookies to be selected to the Pro Bowl, along with Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver/kick returner Tyler Lockett, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston. Gurley beat out Winston for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, earning a decisive 27 votes to 17 for Winston.[47] He was ranked 22nd by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2016.[48]

2016 season

In the Rams' first season back in Los Angeles, Gurley struggled in his second professional season. In the first two weeks of the 2016 season against the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, Gurley was held to a combined 98 rushing yards.[49][50] However, in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Gurley had 28 carries for 85 yards and two touchdowns. His performance against the Buccaneers would be a season best.[51] In Week 4, Gurley caught a season-long 33-yard pass from quarterback Case Keenum in the Rams' 17–13 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.[52] In the remainder of the 2016 season, Gurley's best showing was 76 rushing yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 11.[53] The Rams finished the season with a 4–12 record.[54] Gurley finished with 885 yards (17th in the NFL), 55.3 yards per game, a significant decline from the previous season, and six touchdowns.[55][56]

2017 season

Following the firing of Jeff Fisher and subsequent hiring of Sean McVay as new head coach, Gurley looked to rebound off of a down year which frustrated him with the Rams, prompting him to call the former playbook of the team similar to that of a "middle school offense". Gurley started the 2017 season with a solid performance against the Indianapolis Colts. He had 19 carries for 40 yards and a touchdown to go along with five receptions for 56 yards in the 46–9 victory.[57] In a Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins, he had 16 carries for 88 yards and a rushing touchdown to go along with three receptions for 48 yards and a receiving touchdown in the Rams 27–20 loss.[58] Gurley's breakout game of 2017 came in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football. He ran for 113 yards and two touchdowns and caught five passes for 36 yards and one touchdown.[59] He earned the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for September after recording 241 rushing yards, 140 receiving yards and six total touchdowns.[60] Gurley's streak would continue in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys where he recorded 215 total yards with 121 rushing yards and 94 receiving yards and a touchdown in the Rams 35–30 upset win.[61][62] Having been held without a receiving touchdown in his first 30 games, he now had one in each of his last three, and led the NFL in total touchdowns and yards-from-scrimmage. Gurley was then named NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his 215-yard game against the Cowboys.[63] After logging just 43 yards on 14 rushing attempts in Week 5 against the Seattle Seahawks, in Week 6 Gurley recorded his third 100-yard rushing game of 2017 with 121 yards on 23 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars.[64] In Week 7, Gurley had yet another 100-yard game as 106 yards for 22 rushing attempts, 4 receptions, and 1 touchdown in the Rams 33–0 shutout victory over the Arizona Cardinals.[65]

Following the Rams' Week 8 bye, Gurley's output became more balanced for the next five games: he averaged 62 rushing- and 54 receiving-yards per game, with 100+ yards from scrimmage in four of them, and recording three touchdowns (all rushing) over that time period. In Week 14, he had 96 rushing yards and two touchdowns on just 13 carries, along with 39 receiving yards in an impressive-but-losing effort against Philadelphia.[66] In Week 15, Gurley had a career-best four touchdowns (three rushing, including a 57-yarder on 3rd and 20 with 30 seconds left in the first half) on 180 yards from scrimmage in a dominant 42–7 win over Seattle.[67] He scored 24 total points in the game, which was the most for a single game by any player in the 2017 season.[68] His performance in Week 15 earned him NFC Offensive Player of the Week.[69] On December 19, 2017, Gurley was named to his second Pro Bowl as a starter.[70] In Week 16, Gurley caught 10 passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns to go along with 122 rushing yards (1st and 3rd in the NFL that week respectively), earning him NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the second straight week.[71][72] Gurley was also named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for the second time that season.[73] The playoff-bound Rams decided to have Gurley sit out the last game of the season against the San Francisco 49ers, allowing Kareem Hunt to win the title for rushing yards, but he still led the NFL with 13 rushing touchdowns, 19 total touchdowns, and 2,093 yards-from-scrimmage and all-purpose yards.[74] He finished the season leading the league in scoring among non-kickers with 114 points.[75] He was the 16th player in NFL history with a 750/750 rushing/receiving yard season (8th at 1300/750).[76]

Gurley played his first career post-season game in the Wild Card Round against the Atlanta Falcons on January 6, 2018. Playing from behind most of the game, he had 14 carries for 101 yards in the 26–13 loss.[77][78]

After a stellar 2017 season, Gurley was named the NFL Offensive Player of the Year.[79] He was ranked sixth by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2018.[80]

2018 season: Super Bowl appearance

On April 24, 2018, the Rams exercised the fifth-year option on Gurley's contract.[81] On July 24, 2018, Gurley signed a four-year, $60 million contract extension with the Rams with $45 million guaranteed, making him the highest-paid running back in the NFL.[82]

Gurley scored the Rams' first touchdown of the season, taking a short pass from quarterback Jared Goff and going 19 yards to the end zone in a 33–13 victory against the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football.[83] In Week 2, in the 34–0 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, Gurley recorded three rushing touchdowns for the second time in his professional career.[84] In Week 3, Gurley had 23 carries for 105 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown to go along with five receptions for 51 receiving yards in the 35–23 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.[85] Gurley scored on an eight-yard pass from Goff for the Rams' first touchdown in 38–31 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4.[86]

In Week 5, Gurley had 77 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns in the 33–31 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.[87] In Week 6, Gurley ran for a career-high 208 yards and two touchdowns in a 23–20 win over the Denver Broncos, earning him NFC Offensive Player of the Week.[88] In Week 7, against the San Francisco 49ers, he recorded two rushing touchdowns and a receiving touchdown.[89] Gurley was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for the month of October after rushing for 462 yards and seven touchdowns and catching 16 passes for 157 yards and two touchdowns through four games.[90]

With a 17-yard touchdown run during a Week 10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, Todd Gurley set a new team record by scoring a touchdown in 13 straight games, breaking the mark set by Elroy "Crazy Legs" Hirsch.[91] During a Week 12 matchup against the Detroit Lions, Gurley rushed for 132 yards and two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to help the Rams clinch their second straight NFC West title and was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the second time in 2018.[92]

Gurley scored two rushing touchdowns in a 30–23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 15.[93] He was then held out of the final two regular season games due to knee inflammation and finished the 2018 season with 256 carries for 1,251 yards and 17 touchdowns rushing, along with 59 receptions for 580 yards and four touchdowns receiving.[94][95][96] Gurley was also named to his third Pro Bowl in his four professional seasons. He was also named first-team All-Pro.[97]

In the NFC Divisional Playoff against Dallas Cowboys, Gurley ran 23 times for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' 30–22 victory.[98]

In the NFC Championship Game against the New Orleans Saints, Gurley struggled as he ran four times for 10 yards and a touchdown and had one catch for three yards in a 26–23 overtime victory to advance and play the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.[99] In the Super Bowl, Gurley had ten carries for 35 rushing yards in the 13–3 loss to the Patriots.[100] On March 2, 2019, it was reported that Gurley has arthritis in his left knee.

2012 SEC Championship Game

The 2012 SEC Championship Game was played on December 1, 2012, in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia, and determined both the 2012 football champion of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The game featured the Georgia Bulldogs, winners of the SEC Eastern Division vs the Alabama Crimson Tide, the winner of the SEC Western Division.

Because Alabama and Georgia were both respectively ranked 2 and 3, the game was considered a de facto semifinal game, as the winner would automatically face the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the National Championship with no vote necessary. Georgia was the designated "home" team. The game was televised by CBS Sports for the twelfth straight season. Kickoff was scheduled at 4:00 (EST). Alabama won the game 32-28 improving their record to 4-4 in the title game. Alabama's Eddie Lacy was named MVP after rushing for 181 yards and two touchdowns. The game at the time was the most watched college football game of the 2012 season (it would be surpassed by the 2013 BCS National Championship Game on January 7, 2013) with the game receiving a 10.1 share or 21.0 million viewers tuned in.

2014 Gator Bowl

The 2014 Gator Bowl was an American college football bowl game that was played on January 1, 2014 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. The 69th edition of the Gator Bowl, it featured the Georgia Bulldogs from the Southeastern Conference against the Nebraska Cornhuskers from the Big Ten Conference. The game began at 12:00 noon EST and aired on ESPN2. It was one of the 2013–14 bowl games that concluded the 2013 FBS football season. The game was sponsored by tax preparation software company and was officially known as the Gator Bowl.

Georgia had a regular season record of 8–4 (5–3 SEC). They finished in third place in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division, and were ranked #22 in the BCS. Nebraska finished their season with a record of 8–4 (5–3 Big Ten), tied for second place in the Big Ten Legends Division.

Nebraska beat Georgia by a score of 24–19. Nebraska wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, who had 4 receptions for 129 yards, including a 99-yard touchdown reception, was named the game's most valuable player.

2015 St. Louis Rams season

The 2015 St. Louis Rams season was the franchise's 78th season in the National Football League and the fourth under head coach Jeff Fisher.

It was also the 21st and final season that the team resided in St. Louis, Missouri, its home since the 1995 season. After the Rams finished last in attendance for the 2015 season, and an arbitral tribunal gave permission for the Rams to void their lease on the Edward Jones Dome, Rams owner Stan Kroenke filed a formal application with the league to relocate the Rams to Los Angeles, California, where the team is temporarily playing at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for four seasons at which time they will relocate to the stadium in Inglewood, California, when the construction of it is complete. They were originally slated to play at Coliseum for only three seasons; delays in the construction of the new venue resulted in the added season for which they would play at the historic Coliseum. Kroenke's request to move the team to Los Angeles was approved on January 12, 2016, at a meeting in Houston, Texas.The Rams missed the playoffs for the eleventh straight season, tying a record set between 1956–66.

2017 Los Angeles Rams season

The 2017 Los Angeles Rams season was the franchise's 80th season in the National Football League, the 81st overall, the 51st in the Greater Los Angeles Area and the first under new head coach Sean McVay as well as a new coaching staff. The Rams improved on their 4–12 record from the previous season. With a win over the Arizona Cardinals, the Rams ended a decade-long drought and clinched their first winning season since 2003 and first playoff appearance since 2004, when the club was based in St. Louis. The team played a game in London, England at Twickenham Stadium against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7 as one of the NFL London Games.

For the second consecutive year, the Rams started out in first place in the NFC West with a 3–1 record. The Los Angeles Rams also scored 107 points in the first three games of the season, the second highest in franchise history and a league leader. Furthermore, the team went from being dead last in total offense the previous season with an NFL-low 224 points to becoming the highest scoring team in the league in 2017 with an average of 29.9 points per game and 478 total points scored - tops in both categories. On Christmas Eve, the Rams defeated the Tennessee Titans 27–23 in a Super Bowl XXXIV rematch to clinch the NFC West for the first time since 2003 and their first playoff berth since 2004. This was also their first division title as the Los Angeles Rams since the 1985 season. Their promising season came to a end as they were defeated by the No. 6 seed and defending NFC Champions, the Atlanta Falcons, 13–26 in the Wild Card Round. Coincidentally in the Rams' last playoff game in 2005, they were also beaten by the Falcons.

2017 NFL season

The 2017 NFL season was the 98th season in the history of the National Football League (NFL). The season began on September 7, 2017, with the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the defending Super Bowl LI champion New England Patriots 42–27 in the NFL Kickoff Game. The season concluded with Super Bowl LII, where the National Football Conference (NFC) champion Philadelphia Eagles faced the American Football Conference (AFC) champion New England Patriots. The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots 41–33 to win their first Super Bowl title, and fourth NFL championship, in franchise history. It was also a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIX, where the Patriots won 24–21 to win their third title.

For the second consecutive year, a team relocated to the Los Angeles metropolitan area, as the former San Diego Chargers announced their intent to do so in January 2017.

2018 Los Angeles Rams season

The 2018 Los Angeles Rams season was the franchise's 81st in the National Football League, their 82nd overall, their 52nd in the Greater Los Angeles Area and their second under head coach Sean McVay.

The Rams improved on their 11–5 record from the 2017 season, which ended the franchise's 12-year playoff drought. Los Angeles was victorious in its first eight games of the season (the team's best start since 1969) before the Rams suffered their first loss to the Saints in Week 9.

After defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 54–51 in Week 11 in the third highest-scoring game in NFL history, and a 30–16 victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 13, the Rams clinched the NFC West for the second consecutive year, giving Los Angeles its first back-to-back division titles since the 1978 and 1979 seasons. With that victory, the Rams clinched consecutive playoff berths for the first time since the 2003 and 2004 seasons, when the franchise was based in St. Louis. Following wins over the Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers in the final two weeks, the Rams ended the regular season tied with New Orleans for the NFL's best record at 13–3. The 13 regular season victories was tied for the second-most in franchise history and is the most-ever wins in a season for a Los Angeles-based professional football team.

The Rams started their playoff run by defeating the Dallas Cowboys 30–22 in the Divisional round, their first home playoff win in Los Angeles since 1985 and their first home playoff win since 2001 against the Packers while they were based in St. Louis. This would be their first NFC Championship Game appearance since 2001, and their first as the Los Angeles Rams since 1989 (and first while playing at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum since 1979). The Rams then defeated the number 1 seed New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game 26–23 in overtime, a game which featured a controversial no-call on an apparent pass interference by Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman. By defeating the Saints, the Rams advanced to Super Bowl LIII, where they faced the New England Patriots. The two teams previously met in Super Bowl XXXVI, in which the Patriots defeated the then-St. Louis Rams 20–17. This is the Rams' first Super Bowl appearance since that game and first based in Los Angeles since Super Bowl XIV in 1979. Playing at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, the Rams lost to the Patriots 13–3 in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in NFL history.

Georgia Bulldogs football statistical leaders

The Georgia Bulldogs football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Georgia Bulldogs football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, Single season and career leaders. The Bulldogs represent the University of Georgia in the NCAA's Southeastern Conference.

Although Georgia began competing in intercollegiate football in 1892, the school's official record book often does not generally include statistics from before the 1950s, as records from this era are often incomplete and inconsistent.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

Since 1950, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.

The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.

Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002. The Bulldogs have played in a bowl game every year since this decision, giving recent players at least one extra game each year to accumulate statistics. In the 2017 season, the Bulldogs played in the College Football Playoff National Championship, giving players in that season yet another game. Similarly, the Bulldogs have played in the SEC Championship Game five times since first qualifying in 2002.

The Bulldog teams under recent head coach Mark Richt, who coached from 2001 through 2015, have had some of the highest-gaining offenses in Georgia history. All 5 of the top 5 seasons in team total offense have come under Richt.These lists are updated through Georgia's game against Austin Peay on September 1, 2018. The Georgia Football Media Guide generally does not list a full top 10 in the single-game records.

History of the St. Louis Rams

The professional American football franchise now known as the Los Angeles Rams played in St. Louis, Missouri, as the St. Louis Rams from the 1995 through the 2015 seasons. The Rams franchise relocated from Los Angeles to St. Louis in 1995, which had been without a National Football League (NFL) team since the Cardinals moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1988. The team's primary stadium was The Dome at America's Center, which was known as the Trans World Dome and the Edward Jones Dome while utilized by the Rams.

The Rams’ first home game in St. Louis was at Busch Memorial Stadium, where they played before the Dome was completed, in a 17-13 victory against the New Orleans Saints on September 10, 1995. Later that season, they played their first game at the newly-completed Dome on November 12 in a 28-17 victory against the Carolina Panthers. Their last game played in St. Louis was against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on December 17, 2015, which they won, 31–23. The Rams’ last game as a St. Louis-based club was on January 3, 2016, against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium, where they lost in overtime 19–16. Following the 2015 NFL season, the team returned to Los Angeles.

During the Rams' tenure in St. Louis, the franchise won its first and, to date, only Super Bowl title during the 1999 season in XXXIV and also made Super Bowl XXXVI two years later but were upset by the New England Patriots in the game that began the Patriots dynasty. Assisted by the Greatest Show on Turf offense, the Rams enjoyed their greatest period of success from 1999 to 2006, but struggled throughout their remaining years in St. Louis. Upon their relocation back to Los Angeles, the Rams went 12 seasons without obtaining a winning record and 11 seasons without qualifying for the postseason.

List of Los Angeles Rams first-round draft picks

The Los Angeles Rams, a professional American football team based in Los Angeles, joined the National Football League (NFL) as Cleveland Rams in 1937. The Rams began playing in 1936 as a charter member of the second American Football League. Although the NFL granted membership to the same owner, the NFL considers it a separate entity. In 1946, Rams' owner Dan Reeves, fed up with poor attendance at Cleveland Stadium, moved the Rams to Los Angeles, and the team played there from 1946 to 1979. Before his death in 1979, later Rams owner Carroll Rosenbloom planned a move within the Los Angeles metropolitan area to Anaheim, using the venue now known as Angel Stadium, and his widow and successor Georgia Frontiere went through with the move in 1980, with the team still officially representing Los Angeles. The Rams moved to St. Louis in 1995 and renamed the team St. Louis Rams. In January 2016, the Rams and the NFL announced that the team would return to Los Angeles. The team now plays in its original L.A. venue, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, while awaiting the 2020 opening of its new stadium in suburban Inglewood.The Rams first participated in the 1938 NFL Annual Player Selection Meeting, more commonly known as the NFL Draft. The Rams did have a 1937 pick, but it was picked by the NFL for an expansion team and later the Rams were later admitted into the league before the 1937 season. Every year during April, each NFL franchise seeks to add new players to its roster through the NFL Draft. Teams are ranked in inverse order based on the previous season's record, with the worst record picking first, and the second–worst picking second and so on. The two exceptions to this order are made for teams that appeared in the previous Super Bowl; the Super Bowl champion always picks 32nd, and the Super Bowl loser always picks 31st. Teams have the option of trading away their picks to other teams for different picks, players, cash, or a combination thereof. Thus, it is not uncommon for a team's actual draft pick to differ from their assigned draft pick, or for a team to have extra or no draft picks in any round due to these trades.The Rams' first selection as an NFL team was Johnny Drake, a fullback from Purdue in 1937. The Rams have selected the number one overall five times, drafting Corbett Davis in 1938, Billy Cannon in 1960, Terry Baker in 1963, Orlando Pace in 1997, and Sam Bradford in 2010 The Rams have drafted second overall seven times and the third overall two times. Five eventual Hall of Famers were selected by the Rams: Elroy "Crazylegs" Hirsch, Merlin Olsen, Tom Mack, Jack Youngblood, and Eric Dickerson. The team's most recent first round selections are Greg Robinson, an offensive tackle from Auburn, Aaron Donald, a defensive tackle from Pittsburgh, Todd Gurley, a running back from Georgia, and Jared Goff, a quarterback from California.

List of National Football League annual rushing touchdowns leaders

This is a season-by-season list of National Football League players who have led the regular season in rushing touchdowns. Although rushing has both an offensive and a defensive meaning, this list charts offensive rushing touchdowns, usually scored by a running back, either a halfback or a fullback.

Record-keeping for rushing touchdowns began in 1932, when Bronko Nagurski of the Chicago Bears led the league with 4 rushing touchdowns. Since then, LaDainian Tomlinson has set the record for rushing touchdowns in a season, when he led the league in 2006, with 28 rushing touchdowns, while playing with the San Diego Chargers. Prior to Tomlinson's setting of the record, Priest Holmes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Shaun Alexander of the Seattle Seahawks, jointly held the record with 27, reaching that mark in 2003 NFL season and 2005, respectively.

Jim Brown holds the record for most league-leading seasons in rushing touchdowns, with 5 (1957, 1958, 1959, 1963, and 1965). Dutch Clark became the first player to lead the league in consecutive seasons (1936 and 1937), although in 1937 he co-led the league. The first sole rushing touchdowns leader in consecutive seasons was Johnny Drake, when he led in 1939 and 1940. Steve Van Buren was the first to lead the league in 3 consecutive seasons, from 1947 to 1949, a figure later matched by Jim Brown (1957 to 1959) and Leroy Kelly (1966 to 1968). Marcus Allen is the only player in NFL history to lead the league in rushing touchdowns while playing with 2 different teams; in 1982, Allen led the league while playing with the Oakland Raiders, and in 1993, he led the league while playing with the Kansas City Chiefs.

In 1943, Bill Paschal became the first NFL player to post a 10+ rushing touchdowns season, when playing for the New York Giants. 40 seasons later, in 1983, John Riggins posted the league's first 20+ rushing touchdowns season. Steve Van Buren was the first player to lead the league with consecutive 10+ rushing touchdowns seasons, in 1947 and 1948; he would add a third consecutive in 1949. Emmitt Smith posted the first consecutive league-leading 20+ rushing touchdowns seasons in 1994 and 1995–an achievement later matched by Priest Holmes, in 2003 and 2004.
