Who Did John Elway Throw More Touchdowns Against Than Any Other?

The Denver Broncos of the late 1980’s and through the 1990’s were one of the most formidable teams in the entire National Football League. They had a high scoring offense that could pick a defense apart and put up some serious points. The driving force behind that offense was the quarterback, John Elway.

John Elway eventually helped the team win back to back Super Bowl titles before he retired, but he was also effective throughout his entire career.

He was blessed with having some great talent on the roster for him to work with too during this time. Some of the many offensive weapons that he was able to use included Shannon Sharpe, Terrell Davis, Ed McCaffrey, Rod Smith, Vance Johnson, Mark Jackson, Anthony Miller, and Steve Watson.

With all these great players ready to catch the ball, and a good amount of talent, it is no wonder that he finished his career ranked at or near the top in many touchdown pass related categories. What team though did he throw the most touchdown passes against?

Elway’s Broncos played in the old AFC West, which meant that most of their games were against division foes the Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, and Seattle Seahawks. During his career he threw 44 touchdown passes in games against the Seahawks, more than he threw against any other team in the league. In second place on that list is the San Diego Chargers who gave up 38 touchdown passes to Elway.
