MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson set an NFL record Thursday night against the New England Patriots for the most receiving yards in the first three seasons of a career.

Jefferson needed four fewer games to break the previous mark held by another former Vikings receiver, Randy Moss, who had 4,163 yards from 1998-2000.

Jefferson’s record-breaking catch came on a 37-yard play with 5 five minutes, 8 seconds remaining in the third quarter of the Vikings’ game against the Patriots. Jefferson accomplished the feat in his 44th career game, while Moss’ total came over the course of 48 games.

The 37-yard reception gave Jefferson 77 receiving yards for the game and a total of 4,168 in his career. Jefferson led the NFL in receiving during his first two seasons, totaling 3,016 yards in 33 games.
