Gaffney going after teammate's record

DENVER -- Is Brandon Marshall's single-game receiving record in jeopardy?

In a situation with many twists, Denver receiver Jabar Gaffney has 10 catches for 145 yards. The game is tied 10-10 at halftime.

Gaffney is starting because Marshall was deactivated by the team because of accountability issues. Last month, Marshall set the NFL record with 21 catches (he had 200 yards) against Indianapolis.

Like Marshall -- who had 101 catches in the first 15 games -- Gaffney is the clear focal point of Denver’s attack Sunday. Even without Marshall, Denver is using the same spread attack. Gaffney is Marshall on Sunday and Marshall’s record could be in jeopardy as a result.
