Food For Thought: One-yard Touchdown Passes

By John Turney
The following quarterbacks— Johnny Unitas Roger Staubach, Bobby Layne, Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw, Bart Starr, Dan Fouts, Sonny Jurgensen, Fran Tarkenton threw a combined total of 35 one-yard touchdowns in their careers which is an average of about 4 one-yarders per season.

Tom Brady has 35, the same number. Peyton Manning has 38 one-yard touchdown passes. Drew Brees has 32.

Just something to think about.


  1. Something I have thought about but I didn't know the exact numbers. I wonder if there were any games during his 47 game streak that Johnny U only threw a one yard TD pass and same for Brees during his record breaking streak.

    1. Unitas only had 4 in entire career... so odds are low that he threw more than 1 during streak
