Catching up on Josh Gordon's amazing last two games, and amazing emergence his first two seasons:
  • Gordon is now just 41 yards from breaking the Cleveland Browns single-season receiving record, held by Braylon Edwards in 2007.
  • He now has seven 100-yard games, which is half as many as Webster Slaughter, who has the most in Browns history with 14. Slaughter played in 84 games for the Browns, Gordon has played in 26.
  • No player in NFL history has topped 200 yards receiving in consecutive games. (Not even Ronnie Powell.)
  • Gordon has 498 yards the last two games, and 623 in the last three. Both are NFL records. The following receivers do not even have 623 yards this season: Emmanuel Sanders, Golden Tate, Dwayne Bowe, Stevie Johnson and Kenbrell Thompkins.
  • Gordon’s three-game record broke the mark set by Charlie Hennigan of Houston 52 years ago in 1961.
  • If Gordon has one more 200-yard game this season, he will tie Hennigan’s record of three in a season.
  • If Gordon had a full season averaging what he has the last three games, he’d finish with 3,322 receiving yards.
  • If he had a full season averaging what he has the last two games, he’d have 3,984 yards. That won’t happen of course, but it sure is fun to think about.
  • Gordon’s 95-yard touchdown catch against Jacksonville was the third-longest play in Browns history. Most if it came from Gordon, who caught a well-thrown ball, landed and ran away from two defenders from a dead stop.
  • Gordon’s 1,249 yards this season come in two fewer games than most receivers have played. He was suspended the first two weeks of the season.
  • Gordon’s six 100-yard games are a Browns single-season record.
  • Eleven of Gordon’s 12 touchdown passes are 20 yards or longer.
  • In 26 games, Gordon has 2.054 yards.
  • Gordon is all of 22 years old.

Think Bill Belichick will let him face single coverage the way Jacksonville did?
