Todd Gurley's top five plays from the 2019 season

Running back Todd Gurley's fifth season as a Ram saw him climb the rankings for several franchise records on his way to 223 carries for 857 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Here are his top five plays from the 2019 season.

5) 25-yard run vs. Panthers, Week 1

The Rams marched downfield on the opening possession of the second half of this game, looking to build on a 10-point lead. After completions of 24 and 15 yards from quarterback Jared Goff to wide receiver Brandin Cooks moved the Rams into Panthers territory, Gurley took a handoff from Goff 25 yards to set up Los Angeles at the Carolina 11-yard line. The carry – Gurley's longest of the season – would help set up a 27-yard field goal by kicker Greg Zuerlein to extend L.A.'s lead to 16-3.

4) 23-yard reception vs. Bears, Week 11

Gurley's longest catch of the season took the Rams from their own 47 to the Bears' 30. He finished with three for 36 yards, which, in addition to his 97 yards rushing, gave him a season-high 133 yards from scrimmage in L.A.'s 17-7 win over Chicago.

3) 13-yard touchdown catch vs. Falcons, Week 7

One of two receiving touchdowns on the season for Gurley, this one came via a tough over-the-shoulder catch against the Falcons. It was also the first touchdown for the Rams in an eventual 37-10 victory in Atlanta.

2) First touchdown run vs. 49ers, Week 16

Gurley's five-yard touchdown run at the beginning of the second quarter made him the first Rams player in franchise history with 13 or more touchdowns in three straight seasons. He finished the 2019 season with 12 rushing touchdowns and two receiving touchdowns.

1) Second touchdown run vs. 49ers, Week 16

Gurley's eighth carry of the contest put him on the doorstep of franchise history. A one-yard touchdown run with 6:50 left in the first half gave him his final one of the season and moved him into a tie with Marshall Faulk for most rushing touchdowns in franchise history (60).
