Jacksonville Jaguars’ All-Time Rushing TD Leaders
The Jacksonville Jaguars began play in the NFL in 1995, and along with the NFC’s Panthers, were two expansion teams that reached their respective conference title games in 1996. The Jaguars have been very competitive, almost from Day 1, and have typically had a strong defense and rushing attack. Here is a short list of the Jags’ all-time leaders so far in rushing touchdowns:
Fred Taylor (62)—Fred Taylor has played most of his career in Jacksonville, from 1998 to 2008, and he ranks first in Jaguars’ history with 62 rushing touchdowns. Taylor arguably had his best season in 1998, when he rushed for 1223 yards, and had a career high 14 rushing TDs; with 44 catches and career highs in receiving yards (421) and receiving scores (3).
Maurice Jones-Drew (54)—Maurice Jones-Drew has only been in the league since 2006, and as I write this in 2011 he already ranks second in team history for the Jags with 54 rushing scores. Jones-Drew made the Pro Bowl in both 2009 and 2010, and 2009 was probably his best season to date. That year, he rushed for career highs in yards (1391) and rushing TDs (15); adding 53 receptions for 374 yards and 1 more TD out of the backfield.
James Stewart (33)—James Stewart played for the Jaguars from 1995 to 1999, and he ranks third in franchise history with 33 rushing touchdowns. Stewart had one of his best seasons in 1999, when he rushed for 931 yards and 13 rushing TDs; and added 21 catches for another 108 yards as a receiver.
Stacey Mack (19)—Fullback Stacey Mack played for the Jags from 1999 to 2002, and he ranks fourth in their history with 19 rushing TDs. Mack’s best season was 2001, when he had career highs in rushing yards (877) and rushing scores (9, tied career best); and added 23 receptions for 165 yards and 1 more touchdown receiving.
David Garrard (17)—David Garrard is a quarterback who has played for Jacksonville his entire career so far, since 2002. Garrard also ranks fifth in franchise history with 17 rushing touchdowns. His best season so far was arguably 2010, when Garrard rushed for 279 yards and a career high 5 rushing scores; passing for 2734 yards with a career best 23 passing TDs.
