Shaun Alexander's record ball
A piece of NFL history arrived at the Hall of Fame and has been placed on display in the museum’s Pro Football Today exhibition area. The football that Seattle Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander carried for his first of three touchdowns in the Seahawks’ 31-16 win over the St. Louis Rams on November 13, 2005 was donated to the Hall by the team.
With that score, his 15th touchdown of the year, Alexander became the first player in NFL history to score 15 touchdowns in five consecutive seasons.
