Todd Gurley continued his absolutely torrid start to the season Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers and is currently putting together ​one of the best scoring seasons in NFL history. He's scored 14 total touchdowns in seven games and is on pace to score 32 touchdowns, which would break LaDainian Tomlinson's record of 31.


Gurley has been scoring at such a torrid pace that he has more total points than an entire team – the lowly Buffalo Bills.

Gurley's 14 touchdowns plus his two two-point conversions, give him 88 points on the season. The Buffalo Bills have a total of 79 points on the year with 10 field goals, seven touchdowns and seven extra points. Gurley has more points and twice as many touchdowns than the Bills. The Rams as a team have scored 235 points, just to compare.

There aren't a lot of words to describe how astounding it is that Gurley has outscored the Bills, and it's honestly probably a bit more of a testament to how good the back has been than how bad the Bills offense is. In fact, Gurley is just four points short of outscoring the Arizona Cardinals and three touchdowns short of the Tennessee Titans. In Tomlinson's record year, he outscored the Oakland Raiders, 186-168, on the season, so this is not unprecedented.

But that doesn't mean the Bills offense gets off the hook here. They're still the worst offense in the league and it looks like signing Derek Anderson is nothing more than a placeholder until rookie Josh Allen returns. The Bills defense has been good enough to win two games, but they're not going to win many more this year.


Gurley has been a human highlight reel and is making the Rams look nearly unbeatable at the moment.
