Roddy White Sets Franchise Touchdown Mark In Week 15

New, comments

The best receiver in Falcons history is now also the highest scoring non-kicker in the franchise's

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

There are Falcons setting franchise marks nearly every week this season, and this time it's veteran wide receiver Roddy White setting a record.

The 62nd touchdowns ensure White passes Michael Turner on the all-time list, and cements his status as one of the franchise's all-time greats. Roddy has the most receptions, receiving yards and now touchdowns in team history, and he will almost certainly own those marks until the end of Julio Jones' career, if not longer. He's one of the greats.

This mark doesn't take the sting out of the loss, but it is something we should take a little time to applaud. Congratulations, Roddy White, and may you build on that mark in the years ahead for Falcons teams who have winning records throughout the entire season.
