Wisconsin fans know what kind of scoring machine Melvin Gordon can be. Now he’s showing that to the entire NFL.
With three more touchdowns on Sunday against Atlanta, Gordon leads the NFL in touchdowns with 10 through seven weeks. Eight of the scores for the San Diego Chargers have come on the ground. Sunday marked Gordon’s third multi-touchdown game of the season.
Who LEADS* the NFL in touchdowns this season?

As of Sunday evening, Gordon led Buffalo’s LeSean McCoy and Arizona’s David Johnson for the league’s best mark.
Gordon is becoming a household name among fantasy football owners. Wisconsin fans probably aren’t shocked that the tailback is adjusting so well at the next level. Gordon scored 49 touchdowns with the Badgers, including a whopping 32 in his senior season.
