From May 30 and every day until September 5… the start of the 2013 NFL season… Sports Stats ‘on Tapp’ will publish “99 Stats Until Kickoff” a daily dose of NFL stats that will get you ready for the 2013 NFL season.)
If you noticed my item on the winningest coaches in NFL history based on the alphabet (#1), you noticed that Jim Zorn, who coached the Washington Redskins for two seasons (2008-09), was the head coach who had the most wins by a coach whose last name started with the letter Z. Well, Zorn makes another alphabet list: Most TDs by a player whose last name starts with the letter Z. Zorn had 17 NFL TDs in his professional career that ran from 1976-87.
Here’s a look at the players who scored the most TDs in NFL history… by the alphabet. In addition, I’ve listed in parenthesis the active (active during the 2012 season) player who has the most career TDs within each letter. For those letters where the leader is an active player, I listed the active player with the second most TDs.
