As always, our friends at NFL.com and the RedZone channel (the single greatest thing ever invented) have given us every single touchdown scored in Sunday's morning and afternoon games. There's a total of 61 this week, and we're pretty sure that Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin scored at least 30 of them.
Well, OK -- the Muscle Hamster picked up "only" four rushing touchdowns in the Bucs' 42-32 win over the Oakland Raiders. Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer threw for four touchdowns, which just goes to show how meaningful such stats are when your team loses. Aaron Rodgers also threw for four scores in Green Bay's 31-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals. In this highlight reel, you'll also see the three touchdown runs from Mikel Leshoure of the Detroit Lions, who probably thought he'd get a bunch of headlines Monday until Martin suited up.
Only two quarterbacks threw for three touchdowns without throwing a pick -- Chicago's Jay Cutler and Seattle's Russell Wilson. You'll see all six of those scores as well. Indy's Andrew Luck threw for two touchdowns, but we'll give him a namecheck here after he set the single-game rookie record with 433 passing yards.
Bears receiver Brandon Marshall led all pass-catchers Sunday by catching all three of Cutler's touchdowns, though Green Bay's Randall Cobb's two touchdowns were more impressive from a highlight perspective. Impressive yards after catch, Mr. Cobb. You'll also see the two-touchdown games from receivers Eric Decker of the Broncos, Golden Tate of the Seahawks, and Brandon Myers of the Raiders. You'll also see a defensive touchdown scored by the Bears -- that seems to be a weekly occurrence this season.
Sit back, grab your refreshments of choice, and enjoy Touchdownapalooza. We're happy to bring it to you.
