Move up the NFL’s all-time touchdown leaders list

Kirk Cousins should be able to climb over 25 spots on the NFL’s all-time touchdown leaders list during the upcoming season.

As it stands, Cousins has tossed a total of 155 touchdowns in his career and he’s thrown 56 of these in a Vikings uniform.

With a conventional-to-good output of Cousins throwing 30 touchdowns in 2020, he will soar up the all-time list from his current spot of 83rd to 56th. Currently, Mark Brunell occupies the 56th slot with 184 career touchdown passes.

Along the way, Cousins will notably eclipse guys like Joe Theismann (160), Jeff Garcia (161), Jim Plunkett (164), Troy Aikman (165), Joe Namath (173), Steven McNair (174), and Rich Gannon (180). In 2021, if healthy, he should be able to set his sights on passing the likes of Kurt Warner, Ken Stabler, Phil Simms, Randall Cunningham, and Terry Bradshaw.

Cousins’ proven capability to throw at least 25 touchdowns per season, his age being in the low-30s, and his consistent durability should enable to him move past a number of all-time touchdown passers with relative ease.
