The 'Most touchdowns in an NFL season' quiz

It's been a wild week in the NFL, and Thursday was no different with the news that the Los Angeles Rams were moving on from 2017 Offensive Player of the Year Todd Gurley. Gurley's name had come up in trade rumors earlier in the day, but when no deal could be found, the team decided to just release him instead. To his credit, Gurley took the news in stride, but at least one of his now former teammates was nonplussed to say the least. Gurley has already landed a new gig, reportedly with Atlanta. No word on the details of the deal, but with the Rams releasing him, it remains evident that paying running backs big money in the modern NFL may not be a sound investment. 

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Gurley is just two seasons removed from one of the greatest scoring seasons in league history. An NFL player has scored 20 or more touchdowns in a single season on just 29 occasions, including Gurley in 2018. So with that in mind, how many of the 29 can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!

Can you name the NFL players with the most touchdowns in a single season?
