Jarvis Landry sets lofty goals every season. This year he wanted to set the Miami Dolphins’ franchise record for receiving yards, breaking the 1,389-yard threshold that Mark Clayton set in 1984. That record isn’t within reach, considering Landry would need 545 yards over the next two games, but Landry is at the doorstep of another possible achievement. Landry’s 98 receptions has the former LSU standout trailing Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown for the NFL’s leader in receptions this season. And considering Brown, who has caught 101 passes this season, is sidelined by a calf injury suffered in last Sunday’s loss to the Patriots, it is possible that Landry could finish 2017 with the most catches in the regular season. The only players close to Landry, who has produced 844 yards and scored eight touchdowns on those receptions, are Saints receiver Michael Thomas (94 receptions), Houston’s DeAndre Hopkins (92) and Arizona’s Larry Fitzgerald (92). So with a strong finish in the final two games, Landry could earn the catches crown.
