The Los Angeles Chargers' standout wide receiver, Keenan Allen, is currently leading the league with an impressive 97 receptions and holds the second spot with 1,117 receiving yards. In a remarkable display of consistency, Allen has achieved at least 10 receptions and 100 receiving yards in each of his last three games.


Looking ahead to the upcoming game against New England on Sunday (1 p.m. ET, CBS), Allen has the opportunity to etch his name in the NFL record books. If he manages another stellar performance, he will become only the second player in NFL history to achieve at least 10 receptions and 100 receiving yards in four consecutive games, joining the legendary Calvin Johnson (2012).


Allen is also on the cusp of joining an elite group of players as only the third in history with 20 such games in his career, alongside Andre Johnson (21 games) and Antonio Brown (20).

Here is a breakdown of the players with the most games featuring at least 10 receptions and 100 receiving yards in NFL history:

Since entering the league in 2013, Allen has solidified his position as one of the league's premier receivers. With 893 receptions, he currently ranks second among all players and has achieved at least 100 receptions in four seasons (2017, 2019-21).


In Sunday's game, with just three receptions, Allen will become the sixth player in NFL history to record 100 receptions in five or more seasons. The illustrious list includes Antonio Brown (six seasons), Brandon Marshall (six), Larry Fitzgerald (five), Andre Johnson (five), and Wes Welker (five).


Players with the most seasons featuring at least 100 receptions in NFL history:

Additionally, with seven receptions in the upcoming game, Allen is poised to become the fastest player in NFL history (138 games) to reach 900 career receptions, surpassing Antonio Brown's record of 143 games.


Shifting focus to the quarterback, Justin Herbert, who entered the league in 2020, has already made a significant impact. Currently ranking fourth among all players with 114 touchdown passes, Herbert has a chance to surpass Patrick Mahomes (114 touchdown passes) for the second-most touchdown passes by a player in his first four seasons in NFL history. Only Hall of Famer Dan Marino (142) holds more.
