The Oldest Players To Ever Score Touchdowns In The NFL


We received a comment from “Kevin” in regards to our post about the oldest running back to ever score a touchdown. He was wondering who the oldest player overall to score a touchdown was.

So we took a look, and the oldest person to ever score a touchdown in the NFL is a quarterback and he did it at the age of 42. This isn’t throwing a touchdown pass, this is either rushing one in or catching a touchdown pass.

Here are the ten oldest touchdown scorers in reverse order:

#10 – Doug Flutie – 41 years, 17 days – 2003

#9 – Jerry Rice – 41 years, 41 days – 2003

#8 – Jerry Rice – 41 years, 62 days – 2003

#7 – Doug Flutie – 41 years, 332 days – 2004

#6 – Vinny Testaverde – 41 years, 337 days – 2005

#5 – Vinny Testaverde – 41 years, 345 days – 2005

#4 – Jerry Rice – 42 years, 39 days – 2004

#3 – Jerry Rice – 42 years, 54 days – 2004

#2 – Jerry Rice – 42 years, 67 days – 2004

#1 – Doug Flutie – 42 years, 71 days – 2005

Doug Flutie scored a touchdown on a one yard run in 2005 in a 24-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs while he was with the San Diego Chargers.
