Bears' Marshall on pace to shatter franchise receiving records.
Behind an impressive offensive performance Sunday the Chicago Bears routed the Jacksonville Jaguars, 41-3. The effort showcased 107 rushing yards from running back Matt Forte and wide receiver Brandon Marshall catching 12 passes for 144 yards and one touchdown.
Marshall's 100-yard game was his third in five starts as a member of the Bears. His blazing start to the season has him on pace to shatter Chicago receiving records, but those feats are something Marshall isn't even thinking about, via ESPNChicago.com:
"I haven't thought about it. It's always an honor to have the opportunity, that platform to have that chance. But it's all about winning. If we continue to win we're all going to be special and we're all going to go down in the record books."
According to ESPNChicago.com, Marshall is on pace to catch 122 passes for 1,587 yards. Former Bears wide outs Marty Booker (100 catches in 2001) and Marcus Robinson (1,400 yards in 1999) own the current franchise records. Despite his production, Marshall has only caught three touchdown passes from quarterback Jay Cutler.
Next Monday, Marshall will get a shot at padding his stats when the Bears host the Detroit Lions. The game will begin at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.
