On the list of all-time red-zone touchdowns, wide receiver Davante Adam of the Las Vegas Raiders may surpass Hall of Famer Randy Moss on Sunday. Davante Adams, a wide receiver with the Las Vegas Raiders, has put up some impressive stats this year, but what he could accomplish on Sunday would rank among his greatest.
Adams has the chance to surpass Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss in terms of red-zone scores by scoring once against the Pittsburgh Steelers. On the list of all-time red zone touchdowns, the second-year Raider would climb to position number five.
Adams Considers It an Honor to Be Amongst the Greats
Speaking to media on Thursday, on prospect of surpassing Randy Moss Adams said
“First, that’s crazy,”
“Obviously, that’s a pretty big deal. Being the top five, top anything in the entirety of this league is hard to do. So, it’s a big honor to be able to do that.”
“I don’t know. I mean, just ever since college, really high school, I just had a nose for the end zone and obviously being put in great situations by the coaches and quarterbacks over the years. They’ve given me a lot of opportunities down there to be able to execute and make those plays. “
“So, I just capitalize on those as much as possible. I’m in the business of maximizing, and if I’m going to be the guy who they rely on to make it happen, then I’ve got to come through.”
With 14 touchdown receptions in his first season with the Raiders, Adams topped the NFL. It was the second time in his career that he had held the league’s top spot in terms of touchdown receptions; the first time was in 2020–21, when he finished with a career-high 18 scores. Adams has scored 88 touchdowns so far in his 10-year career. Additionally, he has 781 receptions for 9,787 yards.
Moss, on the other hand, played 14 seasons in the NFL and finished with 156 touchdowns and 15,292 yards of receiving. Like Adams, he played in six Pro Bowls and was chosen for four first-team All-Pro teams. Moss is also a member of the All-2000s Team for the Hall of Fame.
