Buffalo Bills’ All-Time Receiving TD Leaders
The Buffalo Bills have been a pro football franchise since 1960, first in the AFL and then merging into the NFL in 1970. They won two titles early on, but are zero for four in Super Bowls—all in the early ‘90’s when they were led by the likes of Jim Kelly, Bruce Smith and Thurman Thomas. The Bills also had great receivers then like Andre Reed, and what follows here is a short list of the Bills’ all-time leaders in receiving touchdowns to date:
Andre Reed (86)—Andre Reed played in Buffalo almost his entire career, from 1985 to 1999, and he ranks first in Bills’ history with 86 touchdown receptions. Reed made the Pro Bowl seven straight seasons, from 1988 to 1994, and his best season was arguably 1991, when he caught 81 passes for 1113 yards, with a career high 10 touchdown catches.
Eric Moulds (48)—Eric Moulds played most of his career for the Bills, from 1996 to 2005, and he ranks second in franchise history with 48 touchdown catches. Moulds was a three-time Pro Bowler and his best season was 2002. That year, Moulds had 1292 receiving yards on career highs in receptions (100) and TD catches (10).
Lee Evans (43)—Lee Evans has played his entire career in Buffalo so far as I write this in 2011, and he ranks third in Bills’ history with 43 TD catches. Evans had a career best 9 touchdowns in 2004, but his best overall season was 2006. That year, Evans had career highs in receptions (82) and receiving yards (1292) with 8 TD catches.
Elbert Dubenion (35)—Elbert Dubenion played for Buffalo his entire career, from 1960 to 1968, and he ranks fourth in team history with 35 touchdown receptions. Dubenion made the Pro Bowl in 1964, his best season, when he had 42 catches for career highs in yards (1139) and touchdowns (10). What is most astounding, though, is the fact that Dubenion led the AFL in yards per catch, with a stunning 27.1 mark, which is second-best in pro football history.
Bob Chandler (34)—Bob Chandler played for the Bills most of his career, from 1971 to 1979, and he ranks fifth in franchise history with 34 TD catches. Chandler had his best season in 1975, when he had career highs in receptions (61), receiving yards (824), and touchdown receptions (10, tied career best).
