MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle set the NFL rookie receptions record on Miami's opening drive against the New England Patriots, catching passes on three of the Dolphins' first four pass plays from scrimmage.

After hitting Waddle on back-to-back passes to tie the record on the game's first two plays, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa found Waddle for the record-breaker: a 5-yard crossing route to move Miami to midfield.

Anquan Boldin set the previous record of 101 receptions in his 2003 rookie season with the Arizona Cardinals. Waddle joins Boldin as the only two rookies to record 100 receptions in their first NFL season.
