NFL Trivia

Has any NFL player ever scored a touchdown on a run, pass, and return in the same game? I'm not positive, but I believe that Gale Sayers did it. Does anyone know for sure? If that is the case, I think that Reggie may eventually be the second to do it.

"And, in the next-to-last game, playing on a muddy field that would have stalled most runners, Gale scored a record-tying six touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers. Included in his sensational spree were an 80-yard pass-run play, a 50-yard rush and a 65-yard punt return."

I'm guessing pass-run means a short pass with a long run. So, I think you're right.

Thanks for the information. Hopefully, Reggie will one day duplicate that feat.

Six TDs in a game would be GREAT.

Let's start with one. If Bush scores one, let's get another. Be like Payton and try not to win the game on the first play from scrimmage.

xan, I agree lets get his first in the books. But if we're going to hope for an amazing future with this guy, lets hope he breaks some records.
