Rice scores on a 24-yard TD reception in the first minute of the 49ers game against the Atlanta
Falcons  on Oct. 14, 1990. It marked the first of a career-high five touchdowns that day for Rice.

 

Jerry Rice caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana in Week 5 of his rookie season. That score, his first of his NFL career, came 3 minutes, 14 seconds into the fourth quarter of San Fran’s 38-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 6, 1985. Rice’s TD reception turned out to be the winning score of the game.

It was the first of a staggering 208 touchdowns that Rice would go on to score in his 20-season NFL career. As it turned out, the Falcons were apparently his favorite opponent as he found the end zone against Atlanta more times (29) than any other team he faced.

In all, he scored 197 receiving touchdowns, added 10 on rushing, and fell on a football in the end zone (in a game against the Falcons) for one fumble recovery.

Here is the rundown of each of Rice’s regular season touchdowns.
