Green Bay Packers: Top 10 Running Backs of All Time

9 of 11

3. Paul Hornung

Paul Hornung will forever go down as one of the greatest scorers in NFL history.

Hornung played in Green Bay from 1957-66 and helped the team win multiple championships. The number of points Hornung scored during the time period he played was amazing and helps our choice to rank him third on our all-time list.

Hornung was a part of the Vince Lombardi era and helped the team to four NFL championships including Super Bowl I.

He was named to the Pro Bowl twice as well as being named an All Pro twice and a second team All Pro once. He also won the NFL MVP award in 1961 and was named to the All-Decade Team in 1960. He is a member of both the Packers and Pro Football Hall of Fame.

His record of 176 points in a single season consisted of 13 rushing touchdowns and 2 receiving touchdowns as well as kicking field goals will go down as one of the greatest single seasons in Packes history.

That record of points scored in a season was not broken for more than 40 years. Hornung rushed for 3,711 yards, which ranks him ninth all-time, while his 50 career touchdowns rank him third in all-time Packers history.
