Vikings WR Justin Jefferson passes Randy Moss for most receiving yards through first three seasons

Justin Jefferson continues to make history, this time supplanting a Minnesota Vikings great in the record books.

The 23-year-old wideout passed Hall of Fame pass catcher Randy Moss on Thursday night for the most receiving yards through a player’s first three seasons. Jefferson entered Minnesota’s game against the New England Patriots with 4,109 career yards and beat Moss’ three-year total (4,163) in the second quarter.

Jefferson surpassed Moss on an astounding 37-yard grab with 5:08 remaining the half and Minnesota down 13-10, giving him 77 yards on the day at the time. He entered the half with 94 yards (4,203 in his career) and a touchdown reception, his fifth of the year.

The Vikings star entered Thursday night with the third-most receiving yards in the league (1,093) behind Miami’s Tyreek Hill and Buffalo’s Stefon Diggs, who played earlier in the day.
