Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown surpassed Marvin Harrison for the most catches in a two-season span Sunday in Cleveland.

Brown, who entered the day tied with the former Indianapolis Colts star at 252 receptions, had five catches for 75 yards in the first quarter alone. He ended the day with 187 yards on 13 catches, officially setting the two-year record at 265. 

He also etched his name in the record books by becoming the first receiver in NFL history with 125 catches in consecutive seasons, while also setting the Steelers’ mark for receiving yards for the third straight year. 

Brown finished off a monster 10-catch, 150-yard first half with a 17-yard touchdown reception in the final minute of the second quarter.

Before calling it a day, Brown walked away with one more record.
