Ja’Marr Chase joins Randy Moss in history books after amazing start

·1 min read

Ja’Marr Chase’s incredible rookie season continued Sunday as No. 1 became only the second player to accomplish a feat in his rookie season — and he has some great company.

Chase had his best game Sunday against the Packers, catching six passes for 159 yards and a touchdown. That gives him 456 yards and five touchdowns for the season. Only one other player reached 400 yards and five touchdowns in his first five career games and he’s sitting in Canton, Ohio in the Hall of Fame.

That man is Randy Moss, who had 463 yards and six touchdowns after five games, including 190 yards against, ironically, the Packers in Week 5. Moss would finish his rookie season with 69 catches for 1,313 yards and 17 touchdowns.

With the 17-game schedule, Chase is currently on pace for 78 catches, 1,550 yards and 17 touchdowns. Even a 16-game pace would still be 73 catches, 1,459 yards and 16 touchdowns. Not bad for someone who was told he couldn’t catch.
