Lenny Moore 1964 NFL Season and 18-Game TD Streak

Moore’s 1964 NFL season was special in more ways than one. Coming off of a season in which he played in only a handful of games due to injury, Moore returned to form in a big way. He scored an astounding 20 TDs and helped the Colts reached the NFL title game. For his efforts, the sensational back received the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award.

Moore scored in every single game that season. Add on the scores in games at the end of the 1963 season and Moore would carry into the 1965 season a 16-game TD scoring streak. His NFL record streak was snapped at 18 early in 1965 when he was held scoreless by the Green Bay Packers in week 2. His record was his alone for 40 years until Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson tied it when he scored in 18 straight games over the 2004-05 seasons.
