Jefferson Now Ranks 2nd in Vikings History for Receiving Yards by Age 23

MINNEAPOLIS — Another week, and seemingly another milestone for Justin Jefferson.

The second-year receiver just moved into second place all-time for career receiving yards by a Viking before the age of 23.

Jefferson entered Sunday's game with 1,654 receiving yards, the third most in franchise history and 4 shy of Percy Harvin.

The 2020 first-round pick leapfrogged the 2009 first-rounder on Minnesota's first pass of Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, getting a gain of 9 after a short toss and nice extra effort.

Randy Moss holds the Vikings record with 2,726 yards, which he accomplished over the course of his first two seasons (32 games).

Jefferson capped Minnesota's first possession with a 12-yard touchdown reception, the 10th score of his career and ninth in 10 career home games. He totaled three catches for 32 yards during the drive that gave Minnesota a 7-0 lead with 7:26 left in the first quarter.
