Jerry Rice and the Most Receiving Touchdowns in NFL History
Jerry Rice is the all-time receiving touchdown leader, just three shy of 200.
An unbreakable record? Not necessarily. With the exponential uptick in the NFL‘s passing game over the last three decades – if the trend continues, perhaps one dynamic and resilient star can catch him.
But for now, no one’s really even close. Randy Moss is in second, 41 behind – 25 percent fewer touchdowns.
Active tight end Tony Gonzalez, who has played for 17 seasons, is 90 touchdowns off the pace.
There are only eight players with 100 or more receiving touchdowns. See them below, along with the top 20 all-time. OK, I made it 21, so you can see where Larry Fitzgerald ranks, right on the border.
Anyway, about those past three decades? Fourteen of the 21 players below played during them.Follow @VinGetz
