PTI just referenced that the last time a team didn't allow a TD was the Providence Steamrollers. As of week 13, we have not allowed a rushing TD all season. How about it?
That is not true. The 1928 Providence Steam Rollers were the last team to go 11 games in a row without allowing a rushing touchdown. If we don't allow one tomorrow, then we will have beaten the 1928 Providence Steam Rollers' record!
No team has ever gone an entire season without allowing a rushing TD.
Four rushing TDs is the modern day, 16-game record.
Two rushing TDs (shared by four teams) is the overall record for an entire season.
IMO we are going to beat all those records by not allowing a single rushing TD throughout a 16-game season, and into the playoffs!
