Rookie Receiver Record
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
rookie receiver Mike Evans
has already made history during his career. The Texas A&M product pulled in seven receptions for 209 yards and 2 TDs to help the Bucs defeat the Washington Redskins
27-7. At 21 years, 87 days old, Evans is now the youngest player in NFL history to record a 200-yard receiving game.
He also became the first rookie to register three consecutive 100-yard games with at least one touchdown in each since Randy Moss
in 1998. He was seven receiving yards shy of Vincent Jackson's team record of 216, set two years ago.
Watt Continues Historic Season

win over the Cleveland Browns
yesterday. The defensive end caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Mallett
, recorded a strip sack, made five tackles -- three for a loss -- recovered a fumble and hurried Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer
into several bad throws. He is the only NFL player to register a sack, forced fumble, fumble recovery and a touchdown reception in the same game since sacks became an official statistic in 1982.
Watt is also the first player to score multiple TDs on offense and defense in the same season since Chicago Bears
halfback/defensive back J.C. Caroline
accomplished the feat as a rookie in 1956.
