Wide receiver Justin Jefferson is now the second-ranked Minnesota Vikings player for receiving yards. The 22-year-old entered Sunday’s game against Cleveland Browns with 1,654 receiving yards, the third most in franchise history and four shy of Percy Harvin, who he leapfrogged. 

Randy Moss holds the Vikings record with 2,726 yards, which he accomplished over the course of his first two seasons, that is 32 games. Capping Minnesota’s first possession with a touchdown reception, Jefferson registered the 10th score of his career and ninth in 10 career home games.

The previous record was  set by Jermaine Wiggins and matched by Stefon Diggs at 20 games.
