Jarvis Landry sets NFL Record

Jarvis Landry set an NFL record Sunday with the 427th catch of his career. With that catch for a gain of 15 yards in the third quarter for the Cleveland Browns, he set the record for most receptions through the first five seasons of an NFL career.

He caught two more passes after that and ended the Browns’ 12-9 overtime victory against the Baltimore Ravens with 429 career receptions for 4,419 yards and 23 touchdowns. He has one touchdown this season, his first in Cleveland after playing four seasons with the Miami Dolphins.

Landry now ranks ahead of Larry Fitzgerald (426), Torrey Holt (423) and A.J. Green (415) for most catches in the first five seasons.

Congrats Juice!
