LaDainian Tomlinson Ran For A Touchdown 18 Games In A Row

LaDainian Tomlinson Ran For A Touchdown 18 Games In A Row

LaDainian Tomlinson – way out in front – holds the record for most consecutive games with a rushing touchdown: more than a full season schedule at 18.

That’s five more than the two Washington Redskins tied in second, George Rogers and John Riggins.

It’s a whole lot tougher to string together running scores than passing ones. Outside of Tomlinson, the top 20 streaks run from eight to 13. For passing touchdowns, the range runs from 23 to 54.
