Tyler Lockett has a new career-high in catches.

Toward the end of the first quarter of Sunday’s game vs. the Washington Football Team, the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver caught a 15-yard pass from Russell Wilson for his 83rd catch of the season, a new career-high.

Lockett is also less than 100 yards away from his second-straight 1,000-yard season.

The five-year pro already has four receptions for 34 yards with 11:45 left to play in the second quarter. But he’s not the only Seahawks wide receiver due for a record day.

Second-year wideout DK Metcalf is on the cusp of breaking Steve Largent’s 1985 record. Largent tallied 1,287 receiving yards that season, which led the NFL and set a Seahawks record that has yet to be eclipsed. Metcalf needs 108 yards on Sunday to surpass this milestone.

It’s worth noting he has two more games to break the 35-year old record. Metcalf is on pace to finish the season with 1,452 yards for Seattle.
