McCaffrey climbing up all-time scoring chart

It’s been quite a season for Christian McCaffrey. He’s bagged 25 touchdowns, and he’s not done yet.

McCaffrey scored 21 touchdowns in the regular season despite sitting out a meaningless Week 18 game against the Rams. He’s scored 2 TDs in each of San Francisco’s playoff games.

In NFL history, only seven players have scored even more touchdowns in a season (including both regular season and playoff games). Only two of those players ended up on the winning side in the Super Bowl game (Terrell Davis, who scored 26 touchdowns in 1998, and Emmitt Smith, who scored 31 in 1995).

Three other players have reached 30-plus touchdowns, but without winning Super Bowls. LaDainian Tomlinson (33 touchdowns) didn't even make it to the conference championship, while both John Riggins and Shaun Alexander scored 30 touchdowns but lost in the Super Bowl game.
