Marshall Sets NFL Record
Posted December 14, 2009on:
Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall set an NFL record by catching 21 passes on Sunday vs. the Colts. This broke Terrell Owens previous record of 20 catches in a game. Quarterback Kyle Orton tried to throw to Marshall an astounding 28 times in their 28-16 loss. The rest of the team only had 8 catches for 77 yards which is probably one of the reasons they lost. Marshall had previously set a team-record with 18 catches last September. Marshall now has 86 catches on the year, good for 1,008 yards, and is closing in on his third-straight 100-reception season. Marshall, nicknamed ‘The Beast”, is now 3rd in the NFL in receptions after getting off to a slow start due to injury.
