Jakobi Meyers did it.
He scored his first NFL touchdown on reception No. 135 in his career — the next-longest number of catches before scoring a touchdown is 80 by Bobby Wade. Meyers had four receptions for 49 yards and the touchdown in the New England Patriots’ 45-7 rout of the Cleveland Browns.
Entering the game, the third-year receiver was leading the Patriots in targets (72), receptions (46) and yards (434). Meyers’ success this season is stemming from the ascension of Mac Jones — who threw for 198 yards and three touchdowns in the win against Cleveland.
Here’s a look at Meyers’ first touchdown catch, which was thrown by Brian Hoyer, along with the reaction from Patriots fans.
