Here’s a couple of great trivia questions to ask your friends (and fellow Green Bay Packers fans):
Which Packers player has scored the most TDs for the team this decade (2020-2022)?
Which Packers player has scored the most TDs for the team this century (2000-2022)?
First, let’s look at this decade, the 2020s. There have been 25 players who have scored a TD for the Packers over the past three seasons. Leading the way is a player no longer on the roster: Davante Adams. He scored 29 TDs in 2020 and 2021 before being sent to the Las Vegas Raiders.
Just one TD behind Adams this decade is current Packers running back Aaron Jones with 28 TDs in the last three seasons. There’s a great chance that Jones will take over the lead in this category in 2023.

17: Allen Lazard
16: AJ Dillon
15: Robert Tonyan
9: Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Christian Watson
