Adams' effort was his first career 200-yard receiving game. Last year against the Houston Texans, he established a new career-best of 196 yards.
He dominated the first half, scoring on a five-yard fade after making gains on crossing and seam passes.
By halftime, Adams had six catches for 117 yards and a touchdown. In the second half, he hauled in a 59-yard pass from quarterback Aaron Rodgers and made further significant contributions in the fourth quarter and overtime.
“Yeah, I told at least three people outside the building, talking to family, one of my cousins, talking to my wife, I told her this was going to be my career-high this game, so, either I’m clairvoyant or I know what I’m talking about,” Adams said after the game.
Any throw over 16 yards or any rush over 12 yards is considered an "explosive" play by the Packers. Adams had six "explosive" plays on Sunday, including catches of 59 yards, 34 yards, 24 yards, 22 yards, 20 yards, and 17 yards.
Adams spoke on his connection to Aaron Rodgers. The 28-year-old said “It was good”
“Obviously we had a pretty productive day.”
Adams has 42 receptions for 579 yards and two touchdowns in five games. Over the course of a 17-game schedule, he's on pace for 142 receptions, 1,968 yards, and seven touchdowns.
“There’s a reason he’s got that 99 rating in Madden. He’s a baller,” Coach Matt LaFleur stated.
Adams' 200-yard receiving performance was the eighth in team history and the first since Jordy Nelson threw for 214 yards against the New York Jets in 2014. He joins Nelson, Javon Walker, Don Beebe, James Lofton, Carroll Dale, and Billy Howton as the seventh player overall in team history to have a game with 200 or more receiving yards.
