New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been in the NFL for 10 seasons and he’s been dominant in nearly every one of them. To prove just how great he’s been throughout his career, Marshall made a bit of NFL history against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

In the third quarter, Marshall made his seventh catch of the game, giving him 100 receptions on the year. With that, Marshall became the first player ever to record six 100-catch seasons.

Marshall was tied with Wes Welker, who became the first player in NFL history with five seasons of 100 or more receptions in five seasons. 

Marshall has quietly put together a fantastic career. Entering Sunday’s game, he had caught 866 passes for 11,032 yards and 76 touchdowns in 10 seasons, and added to those totals in a big way against the Patriots.
