The single season record for receptions in a season is 143 receptions by Marvin Harrison in 2002, so B-Marsh will probably come up short of that record, as he'd need to average 13.25 receptions a game for the next 4 games to break Marvin Harrison's record.

Calvin Johnson had 13 receptions for 171 yards and a TD on Sunday. That gives him 86 receptions for 1,428 yards and 5 TDs. That puts him on pace for 115 receptions for 1,904 yards and 7 TDs.

The NFL single season receiving yards record is 1,848 yards set by Jerry Rice in 1995....so CJ has a legit shot at breaking that record.

With Detroit's season in the ****ter, I'm sure they'll make an effort to get him the record.
duh bears lost 2 WR's (if you call Hester a WR) yesterday. Either BM will be the only WR who can catch and hit the record or he will be double and tripled and end up far from it.
