Ceedee Lamb could make NFL history this weekend. However, the Dallas Cowboys receiver must have a monster game against the New York Giants. He needs to receive at least ten passes. Also, Lamb needs to make at least 150 receiving yards. If he achieves those milestones, he will be the first player in the NFL to do so in three straight games.
According to sportsbook pay per head reports, the Cowboys receiver set a franchise record with 12 catches, 158 receiving yards, and two touchdowns in a Week 8 victory over the Rams. He became the first player in Cowboys history to accomplish this feat.
The 24-year-old surpassed his previous high point total in Week 9. Lamb caught 11 catches for 191 yards, but the Cowboys still lost against the Eagles by a score of 28-23. Lamb now shares the team record with Michael Irvin for most games with at least ten receptions and 150 yards.
According to software sportsbook experts, there have not been many players in NFL history who have even come close to what Lamb is about to accomplish. Only three players in the last 25 years (Brandon Marshall in 2012, Keenan Allen in 2017, and Mike Evans in 2018) have caught ten catches for at least 150 yards in each of two consecutive games (2019).
None of the three players was able to become the first player in NFL history with at least ten receptions and 150 yards in each of three straight games.
According to pay per head bookie sources, Marshall had been on a three-year win run with the Bears going into 2012. However, he only managed six catches for 56 yards that year. Keenan Allen came closest to those figures in three consecutive games in 2017. Even though he caught ten catches, the Chargers’ wideout fell short of 150 yards in the third game (He finished with 105). Evans came close to breaking the record in 2019 when playing alongside Jameis Winston. Unfortunately, he only caught four passes for 82 yards in this third game.
