Bears' Brandon Marshall on record-breaking pace

Frederick Breedon

In his first season with the team, Marshall has 59 receptions for 797 yards and seven touchdowns in just eight games.

With seven wins through their first eight games of the season, there are a lot of things going right for the Chicago Bears. Among those positives has been the play of wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who is on pace to break several team records in his first season with the Bears.

Traded from the Dolphins in March for third-round picks in each the 2012 and 2013 NFL Drafts, Marshall has accumulated 59 receptions for 797 yards and seven touchdowns through eight games. On pace for 118 receptions, 1594 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns, Marshall is closing in on team records in each of three receiving categories.

Marty Booker is the only Bears receiver to ever catch 100 passes in a season, when he caught that exact number in 2001. Marcus Robinson set the receiving yardage record for the franchise in 1999 with 1,400 yards, while Dick Gordon and Ken Kavanuagh are tied for the team record in receiving touchdowns.
