Michael Thomas Breaks Marvin Harrison’s Single-Season Catch Record

7 Saints selected to 2019 Pro Bowl

It marked the ninth time this season that the three-time Pro Bowl receiver has caught double-digit passes in a game.

Tennessee had raced to a 14-Zero lead inside the first quarter after Tannehill found Jonnu Smith for a 41-yard touchdown sooner than rookie AJ Brown took an end-around 49 yards for a powerful dashing score.

Two plays later, Thomas would extend the record to 145 with a touchdown grab from Drew Brees.

But perhaps more importantly: the Saints remained alive and well for an opportunity to earn the NFC's top seed once the NFL Playoffs begin in just slightly less than 2 weeks from now. Tennessee will be vying for a playoff spot next Sunday, no matter what happens in Week 16 against the Saints. He had already become the first player in National Football League history to record at least 90 catches in each of his first four seasons of his career. So, I wasn't really looking at the stat sheet, but I was making sure I caught the passes and added value to my team.

The Saints will finish their regular season schedule next Sunday at 12:00 p.m.

Cook got to the left sideline and headed for the end zone and, en route, he picked up a block from running back Alvin Kamara, who walled off a defender for a couple of seconds, enough time for Cook to gallop past and reach the end zone.
