Terry McLaurin needed 40 yards to reach 1,000 yards receiving for the second consecutive season. McLaurin entered Washington’s Week 18 game with 73 receptions for 960 yards.

It didn’t take long for McLaurin to hit the 1,000-yard mark. Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke found McLaurin for his first completion of the game, an 11-yard pickup on the WFT’s first drive.

After a couple of runs, Heinicke drops back to pass, avoids the sack and rolls to his left, finding McLaurin for a 30-yard gain and a first down deep in Giants’ territory. Just like that, McLaurin goes over 1,000 yards on Washington’s first drive.

Here’s the play:

Surprisingly, McLaurin is the first Washington receiver to go over 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons since Henry Ellard accomplished the feat in three straight years (1994-96).

That’s a bit of a surprise considering how good Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson were for Washington under Jay Gruden. Garcon and Jackson each had a pair of 1,000-yard seasons but not consecutively.

Washington should do everything in its power to have McLaurin extended as soon as possible.
