NFL Running Backs with the Most Long Rushing Touchdowns: 50 Yards or More, Regular Season
It’s part two of Sports List of the Day‘s three-part look at players with the most long touchdowns. Yesterday, we saw quarterbacks with the most long passing TDs. Today, how about running backs with rushing touchdowns of 50 yards or more?
And who has the most? Barry Sanders, with 15.
The great Jim Brown (high on just about every important career rushing list) and current New York Jet Chris Johnson are the only other two running backs in NFL history with 10 or more rushing touchdowns of at least 50 yards.
Recognize any of your personal fantasy RBs below? Some of these guys may not be the best running backs of all time (and most will never whiff the Hall of Fame), but surely they were go-to or filler players for your teams over the past 10+ years – Ahman Green, Fred Taylor, Warrick Dunn, Napoleon Kaufman and even actives MJD and DeAngelo Williams.
Hopefully you were playing them when they had their big runs.
Tomorrow, part three – receivers!
