Tampa Bay wide receiver CHRIS GODWIN recorded seven receptions for 184 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers‘ 35-22 win at Atlanta. It marked Godwin’s third game of the season in which he had at least 150 receiving yards.
Godwin and Tampa Bay wide receiver MIKE EVANS have each recorded at least 150 receiving yards in three games this season, becoming the first pair of teammates to each record three such performances in a single season in NFL history.
Godwin, who has 1,071 receiving yards this season, and Evans, who has 1,043 receiving yards in 2019, are the fourth pair of teammates each with at least 1,000 receiving yards in their team’s first 11 games, joining EMMANUEL SANDERS and DEMARYIUS THOMAS (2014 Denver Broncos), TORRY HOLT and ISAAC BRUCE (2000 St. Louis Rams), and Pro Football Hall of Famer DON MAYNARD and GEORGE SAUER (1968 New York Jets).
Evans, who registered 50 receiving yards on Sunday, joined Pro Football Hall of Famer RANDY MOSS (1998-2003) as the only players with at least 1,000 receiving yards in each of their first six seasons in NFL history.
