Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase had already made history this year thanks to his showings over his first two pro games.

The question is simple — can Chase make more history while playing the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend?

As Jay Morrison of The Athletic pointed out, Chase could hit another historic landmark in Week 3:

” Only 30 players leaguewide since the 1970 merger have had TD receptions in their first two games. If Chase can get another one Sunday in Pittsburgh, he would become just the eighth player to catch one in each of his first three games.”

Chase already hit one historical mark over the first two weeks thanks to touchdown receptions of 42 and 50 yards, making him the first since 1976 to record two touchdowns of 40-plus yards to start his career.

If Chase catches another touchdown in Week 3, he can be only the eighth player to accomplish this feat. He should get plenty of chances — Bengals coaches have heard the complaints from Chase, Joe Burrow and fans that they aren’t opening up the offense enough down the field.
