Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall sets franchise record for receptions

USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Marshall set a Bears receiving record on Sunday. Before the season is up, he has a chance to set a few more.

Chicago Bears' wide receiver Brandon Marshall broke the franchise record for receptions in a season on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. With his 101st reception, Marshall eclipsed Marty Booker's mark set in 2001.

Marshall had 10 catches on the day, and his 101st was a touchdown pass from backup quarterback Jason Campbell. Marshall also seems likely to break his personal record for receptions in a season (104), which he set in 2008 with the Denver Broncos. The wideout already has a career-high 1,342 receiving yards this season.

The Bears acquired Marshall from the Miami Dolphins during the offseason in exchange for a third-round draft pick in 2012 and a third-round draft pick in 2013. Bears blogger Steven Schweickert says that this deal is "looking more and more like a steal. The impact he's made on the Bears' offense has really been something to watch."

Marshall has seven 100-yard games this season, which ties him with three others for the most in Bears history. With 1,342 yards and nine touchdowns and three games to play, Marshall also has a chance to break team records for yards (1,400) and touchdowns (13) in a season.
