Yeah, I'm pretty sure he's in there. I was going to nominate himself a few posts back, but somehow I got it into my head that the number mentioned in the original question was FORTY rather than 20. I'm sure Taylor hit 20, and probably somebody else did before O.J. too. Sayers or Leroy Kelly, maybe?

Correct! I was mildly surprised that no one else had done it before Sayers, considering the short length of Sayers' career and the long lengths of guys like JH Johnson and Ollie Matson. Perry's 100-yard games were somewhat sporadic. Brown was really ahead of his time when it came to churning out 100-yard games. Jim Taylor to a lesser degree as well.

One is Gary Garrison, 1968-71. And Buddy Dial (1960-63) just missed, averaging 19.6 one year and 19.8 another.

Paul Warfield would've qualified if he hadn't missed three games in 1970.

Stanley Morgan has to be one. Always followed the 20+ yard guys

Yep, 1978-81, exactly 10 years after Garrison did it.

Name the team. (since 1960)

This team had 2 players that tied for the league lead in rushing TDs. Another player on that same team was 1 TD behind them.
Two of the three are QBs

The starting TE, SE, and FL all averaged over 20 yards a catch.
