The Indianapolis Colts have gotten on the board against the Baltimore Ravens, and they can thank running back Frank Gore for their first score. Gore caught a pass out of the backfield, made a nice move and then dove over a Ravens defender to score the touchdown. I can watch this over and over again.

Gore’s touchdown gives him 94 career rushing and receiving touchdowns. It moves him into a tie for 26th place all time, with Jerome Bettis and Priest Holmes. He is now two back of Eric Dickerson for 25th all-time. He would need to get to 100 to then move into a tie with Franco Harris and Curtis Martin.

Following the touchdown, Gore had accrued 42 rushing yards and 14 receiving yards. The 56 total yards gives him 17,557 yards from scrimmage for his career, good for eighth all time. Marcus Allen is next on the list with 17,654 yards. With a solid finish to this game, Gore could surpass Allen next week in the Colts season finale.
