Tampa Bay wide receiver MIKE EVANS had 12 receptions for 180 yards and a touchdown in Week 9. He joins AJ GREEN (2016) and WES WELKER (2011) as the only players with at least eight receptions, 150 receiving yards and a touchdown in three of his team’s first eight games of a season in NFL history.
Denver quarterback BRANDON ALLEN, making his first career start, threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end NOAH FANT in the Broncos‘ 24-19 win against Cleveland.

Fant is the first rookie tight end with a touchdown reception of at least 75 yards since TYJI ARMSTRONG on December 6, 1992 (81-yard touchdown catch).
