Marshawn Lynch was indeed a beast for Seattle last season, scoring 17 touchdowns to lead the NFL and power the Seahawks to a second consecutive NFC title.
Lynch scored 13 touchdowns on the ground and four more through the air to finish as the only non-kicker in the NFL to score 100 points a year ago. He’s only 29 so the window to his prime is still open. He also signed a two-year contract extension this offseason that will pay him $24 million.
So big things are expected of Lynch in 2015. But can he lead the NFL in touchdowns again? Or will it be Dez Bryant, who finished with an NFL runnerup 16 touchdowns in 2014 and was rewarded with a five-year, $70 million contract by his Dallas Cowboys this offseason? He’s only 26, so big things are expected of him as well.
If not Lynch or Bryant, how about Antonio Brown? He caught an NFL leading 129 passes from the Pittsburgh Steelers last season and also returned 30 punts. He scored 14 touchdowns a year ago and will have ample opportunity to top that in 2015.
How about Jamaal Charles, one of the most versatile backs in football for the Kansas City Chiefs. He rushed for 1,033 yards and nine touchdowns and also caught 40 passes with five more scores in 2015. And never discount Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady’s favorite target at New England. He caught a career-best 17 TD passes in 2011 and a dozen more last season. With Brady under suspension, Gronkowski could become an even bigger part of the offense as the safety valve receiver for Jimmy Garappolo.
So who will lead the NFL in touchdowns this season. Vote now at the Talk of Fame Network.
