Jarvis Landry has been overshadowed by several other great receivers to come into the league in the past two seasons, but he's been one of the most consistent. Entering Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers, Landry was one reception shy of tying the franchise record for receptions in a single season (90).

In the first quarter of the game, Landry broke that record with a three-yard reception — his 91st of the season.

Landry, known as a possession receiver, will likely surpass 1,000 yards receiving this year, as well — the first time he'll do so in his young career. Last season, he caught 84 passes for 758 yards, good for an average of 9.0 yards per catch. This season, he's improved on that, bumping it up to 10.3 yards per reception.

Despite the Dolphins' struggles, Landry has performed extremely well week in and week out.
