Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse both went over 100 receiving yards yesterday for the second straight game. You probably know it isn’t common for two teammates to have back-to-back 100 yard games. You might not realize how uncommon it is, though.
The Jets provided this nugget of information to the media after yesterday’s win over the Chiefs.
For the second consecutive game, WR Robby Anderson and WR Jermaine Kearse both recorded 100-yard receiving games, combining for 17 receptions for 264 yards. The last Jets wide receiver duo to complete this feat was Don Maynard and George Sauer at OAK (12/17/67) and at SD (12/24/67).
The Jets aren’t exactly known for producing Hall of Fame receivers, but they have had some very good duos through the years. It is surprising to hear it has been 50 years since this happened.
I also am not sure many people would have bet before the season on Anderson and Kearse being the duo to accomplish it.
