Justin Jefferson continues to have an unprecedented start to his career with the Minnesota Vikings, and he added to his growing stature on Sunday as he broke an NFL record held by team legend, Randy Moss, in  Minnesota’s 33-30 win over Buffalo.

Moss is widely regarded as one of the best wide receivers in NFL history. During his inaugural three seasons in the NFL, Moss had 19 games of 100 yards receiving, and another six games with 150 or more yards (via Pro Football Talk).

Jefferson has now passed him, as well former New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. for 100-yard games receiving.

In addition, with 4,076 yards in 42 games, Jefferson currently shares the lead for the most yards with Beckham, who set that mark while playing with the Giants.

Jefferson has appeared in 42 games so far and has averaged 108.4 yards per game with 59 receptions, 867 yards, and three touchdowns.

In the NFL, Jefferson has the most games with 100 yards receiving (20) and 150 yards (7) receiving in his first three seasons.

He made 10 catches for 193 yards and a score against the Bills on Sunday.

In the game, Jefferson caught a 32-yard pass from Kirk Cousins on the first play after the two-minute warning in regulation in spectacular fashion to keep a drive alive.

He jumped to get the ball, and Bills CB Cam Lewis grabbed it with two hands before the former LSU player ripped it away with one hand while tumbling to the ground.

“For sure,” Jefferson said about that catch. “Just the way my body … I went up, him catching the ball in his hands and me taking it away from him. I mean, the whole play was crazy.”

The Vikings selected Jefferson with the 22nd overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Previously, he helped lead LSU to a 15-0 season and a national championship in 2019.

"I didn't think that he could surpass what I already felt about him as a player, but he just keeps outdoing himself."

- Adam Thielen

"The ball was catching him today."

- K.J. Osborn

"One of the more remarkable catches I've ever seen."

- Kevin O'Connell
