Gurley Breaks Rams Consecutive Games with a Touchdown Record

With his first quarter eight-yard touchdown carry, running back Todd Gurley cemented a spot in the Rams record books, becoming the first player in franchise history to score a touchdown in 12-consecutive regular season games.

Gurley's streak dates back to last season's Week 14 game against the Eagles, when Gurley scored two rushing touchdowns.

Gurley has now totalled 24 touchdowns since Week 14 a season ago —17 rushing, 7 receiving.

Entering Week 9 against the Saints, Gurley had accumulated 1,742 yards of total offense in his record-breaking run, averaging 106 rushing yards per game, and 52.4 receiving yards per game.

 The Rams are 10-1 during the span, and currently tied with the Saints 7-7, with six minutes remaining in the first quarter. 

Gurley surpassed former Rams running back Elroy Hirsch, who found the end zone in 11-straight games in the between 1950 and 1951.

The NFL record for most consecutive games with a touchdown (18) is shared by RB LaDainian Tomlinson, 2004-05 and HB Lenny Moore, 1964-65.

Gurley's touchdown also gives him the most touchdowns through the first nine games of the season in Rams history (16).
