CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon had a record-setting day in Sunday's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Andrew Weber/USA TODAY SportsJosh Gordon became the first player in NFL history to record at least 200 receiving yards in consecutive games.

Gordon had 10 catches for a franchise-record 261 yards Sunday, becoming the first player in NFL history to have 200 receiving yards in consecutive games.

Gordon's 498 yards receiving over the last two games -- against Pittsburgh and Jacksonville -- also is an NFL record. Detroit Lions star Calvin Johnson held the previous mark with 484 yards.

Against the Steelers, his 237 receiving yards broke Ozzie Newsome's franchise record.

Gordon did even better against Jacksonville and also caught two touchdowns, including a 95-yarder that seemed like it could be the game-winner. He also missed part of the third quarter after he was hit in the jaw at the end of an incompletion. Gordon was examined for a concussion, was cleared and returned.

Gordon shrugged off the records because the Browns lost both games.

"Individually it's great," he said. "But if it was one of those individual sports, then I could accept that. As a team, we have to do a lot better."
