Josh Gordon‘s legend just continues to grow.
One week after he erupted for 14 catches and 237 yards against the Steelers, the second-year receiver decided to do himself one better. Gordon prompted an offensive outburst from the Browns on Sunday, torching the Jaguars’ defense to the tune of 10 catches, 261 yards and two touchdowns. With the effort, Gordon became the first player in NFL history to have 200 receiving yards or more in back-to-back weeks.
While Gordon’s day was impressive on its own, the 23-year-old’s final contribution was by far his shining moment. With less than five minutes left in the game and the Browns trailing 24-21, quarterback Brandon Weeden connected with Gordon on a curl route out in the flat, and the receiver did the rest of the work.
Gordon caught the 15-yard pass, turned on his defender and used his incredible speed to break away from two Jaguars defensive backs as he went 95 yards for the go-ahead score. The lead wouldn’t stand for long, though, as the Jags scored a touchdown just a few minutes later to give them their third win on the season.
Win or lose, Gordon has clearly established himself as one of the NFL’s best receivers. Check out the GIF below for further confirmation.
