Back in March, the New York Jets sent a fifth-round pick to the Chicago Bears for Brandon Marshall and a seventh-round selection. He was projected to pair with Eric Decker to give the Jets two big wideouts, and they've done just that — and more. Nine months removed from the trade and the duo is breaking franchise records.

On Saturday night, Decker caught his 10th touchdown of the season, giving him and Marshall 21 combined scores this year. With that, Marshall and Decker set a new franchise record for combined touchdown receptions in a single season.

The two are already tied with Randy Moss and Cris Carter for the most games in which both players caught a touchdown pass in the same game (7). They'll have two additional chances to break that record in the coming weeks — a feat that's certainly attainable.

On the year, they've combined for 165 catches, 2,191 yards and 21 touchdowns and have become one of the top receiving duos in the league after just one year together.
