Todd Gurley puts himself in Hall of Fame company following Sunday achievement
Todd Gurley hit an impressive career milestone during Sunday’s action.
The former star for the Georgia Bulldogs is back in Georgia this year and is playing for the Atlanta Falcons. Unfortunately, the team is off to an 0-4 start with Gurley rushing for 254 yards entering Sunday’s action.
Gurley was able to get off to a hot start Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, this time with a 35-yard touchdown run. It was a brief glimpse of the Gurley that fans saw in 2017-18 when he was an All-Pro in consecutive season.
That touchdown gives Gurley 75 for his NFL career which put him in Hall of Fame territory. According to CBS Sports, Gurley is just the fifth player in the history of the NFL to compile 75 touchdowns before turning 27. The other four players are all in the Hall of Fame:
