Taysom Hill joins exclusive group of dynamic talents on offense
Hill joins Hall of Famer FRANK GIFFORD as the only two players in league history to reach those numbers. In his seven-year career, Hill has become a triple-threat on offense, totaling 26 rushing, 11 passing and 10 receiving touchdowns.
Gifford’s career stats include 34 rushing touchdowns, 14 touchdown passes and 43 touchdown catches.
In the second quarter, Hill’s 2-yard touchdown catch tied the game 14-14. With 11:05 remaining in the contest, Hill threw a touchdown pass to Juwan Johnson, producing the game-winning score.
The legendary Gifford earned the NFL’s Most Valuable Player honors in 1956, finding the end zone five times rushing and four times receiving, while passing for two more scores helping the New York Giants to an NFL title with an overall record of 9-3-1.
With his accomplishment, Hill also became the fifth player in history with at least 10 rushing, passing and receiving touchdowns in their careers: Gifford and Hall of Famers JIMMY CONZELMAN, RED GRANGE and CHARLEY TRIPPI.
Now on display in the Hall’s “Pro Football Today Gallery” are Hill’s game-worn jersey, cleats and play-call wristband.
