Browns rookie wide receiver Josh Gordon turned in the best game of his pro career on Sunday, recording career highs in receptions and receiving yards.
Gordon caught six passes for 116 yards against the Oakland Raiders, the first 100-yard receiving game of his NFL career. After the game, Gordon said the 100-yard milestone was a significant.
"It's a big deal, a big milestone for me," Gordon said, according to Cleveland Browns.com. "I haven't had one all season, but definitely, I want to build on that. Hopefully, next time, we can get more than that, just give me some goals to look forward to."
While Gordon has proven to be a big play threat this season, he was also extremely efficient on Sunday. Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden targeted Gordon seven times, with Gordon catching six of them. While Gordon topped 100 yards for the first time, he has been close before. In Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals, Gordon finished with 99 receiving yards on three receptions.
The 21-year-old rookie leads the Browns with 646 receiving yards. His 34 receptions are tied for the third-most on the team, trailing Trent Richardson's 44 and Greg Little's 35. Gordon's 116-yard receiving day is the first time a Browns receiver has topped 100 yards this season.
