Steelers’ Chase Claypool continues historic run of touchdowns scored

Chase Claypool only needs one. Two would be really special and three would be outstanding.

With one touchdown in today’s Steelers-Jaguars matchup, the rookie receiver will tie for third-most touchdowns through the first 10 games. Claypool’s scores currently stand at nine — seven receiving and two rushing.

Should Megatron score twice today, he’ll surpass Chicago Bears’ Harlon Hill (1954) and Houston Oilers’ Bill Groman (1960) and join Green Bay PackersBilly Howton (1952) with 11 touchdowns.

If Claypool finds paydirt three times (hey, we’ve seen it before), he’ll lead all rookies in touchdowns with 12.

But why rush history? Chase has seven games to make it happen.
