The pants, gloves, and jersey worn by Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall when he set the NFL record for receptions in a game arrived at the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Monday morning.
Marshall set the single-game mark for catches when he hauled in 21 receptions for 200 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Indianapolis Colts on Dec. 13 to break the single-game mark for catches held since 2000 by Terrell Owens, then of the San Francisco 49ers. Marshall, who threatened the record with 18 receptions in a game last season, also became the first player since 1960 to record eight 10-plus catch games during his first four seasons.
The mementos from Marshall’s record day will be placed on exhibit in the Pro Football Today Gallery.
