The Pro Football Hall of Fame's Top 20 is updated weekly throughout the NFL season. It differs slightly from other similar lists because statistics from the All-America Football Conference (AAFC)-which operated from 1946 through 1949-are included. However, there are only two players who played in the AAFC who currently hold a Top Twenty ranking in any of the four main categories - Otto Graham (passing) and Lou Groza (scoring).

The Top 20 charts the career leaders in four main statistical categories - passing, receiving, rushing, and scoring. The Top 20 lists include many Hall of Fame players and two dozen active players. Follow along each week as today's stars climb the charts.


Tiki Barber climbed three places on the all-time career rushing chart in the season finale.

He rushed for a team record 234 yards and scored three touchdowns (15, 55, and 50 yards).
