There aren't many plays in football more exciting than huge breakaway touchdowns. We've seen plenty of huge passing plays throughout the year, but long rushing touchdowns are rarer.

There have only been 33 rushing touchdown of at least 90 yards in NFL history, and only four players have ever scored more than one: Bo Jackson, Chris Johnson, Lamar Miller and Ahman Green.

Jackson is probably the least surprising name on the list. He holds the record for the longest rush in Raiders history, and he managed to score a pair of 90-plus yard runs despite playing just 38 NFL games over four seasons. He had the league's longest run in three of his four years in the pros.

Johnson isn't a name that's likely to surprise fans either. He burst onto the scene as a sophomore in 2009 with a 2,000-yard season, and that included a 91-yard score. His second came in 2012, when he recorded a 94-yard rush against the New York Jets.

Green holds the record for the longest run in Green Bay Packers history in 2003, and he notched another 90-yarder the following season.

Miller is perhaps the most surprising name on the list, but also maybe the most impressive. He achieved the feat with two different teams on a pair of 97-yard runs. He holds both the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans franchise records, and he is the only back in NFL history to run for even 95 yards on multiple occasions.

This is a bit of an eclectic group of backs, who all had very different reputations throughout their careers. All four are Pro Bowlers though, and having achieved this feat showcases some incredible big-play ability.
