Wide receivers putting up big numbers, too
ENGLEWOOD, COLO. (AP) - Peyton Manning’s 403-yard performance Sunday at Kansas City officially made this season the biggest one ever for quarterbacks.
It was the 19th 400-yard game by a QB in the NFL this season, the most ever for a full season, breaking the record of 18 set in 2011 _ and there’s still a month to go.
Of course, somebody’s hauling in all those throws from the league’s prolific passers. From Calvin Johnson to Demaryius Thomas, wideouts are going wild in 2013.
These types of performances are coming more and more often.
“That’s some pretty good company,” Decker said.
And he had some more good company Sunday when Browns rookie Josh Gordon set a team record with a 261-yard day and Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery went for 249 yards.
Some memorable moments by the league’s top targets this season:
“The mind-set we all have is you have to be ready because you never know when that game might come,” Decker said.
CATCH OF THE WEEK: Jeffery had one of the most impressive performances of the season Sunday _ 12 catches for 249 yards and two TDs in Chicago’s 23-20 overtime loss at Minnesota _ and one of the coolest catches of the year.
On third-and-14 in the third quarter, Jeffrey lined up in the slot to the left and made a gorgeous catch over Vikings cornerback Chris Cook just shy of the end zone. He maintained possession while dragging both feet into the end zone for the score while squeezing the ball with great concentration before tumbling out of bounds.
Cook bumped the official who signaled touchdown, drawing an unsportsmanlike flag and an ejection.
