100-Yard Receiving Games in a Career

This is the last of my lists of 100-yard receiving games. This one shows the total number of 100-yard receiving games that each player has had in team history, along with the team’s record in those games. As was the case with 100-yard games in a season, Michael Irvin dominates this category with a total of 47 games in which he passed the century mark.

A total of 41 players have achieved this accomplishment in team history. This includes six tight ends (Lee Folkins, Doug Cosbie, Jay Novacek, Billy Joe Dupree, and Jason Witten, as well as Frank Clarke, who played both tight end and flanker) and fight running backs (Dan Reeves, Herschel Walker, Tony Dorsett, Emmitt Smith, and Ron Springs). No real surprises, though you might note that Clarke and Lance Rentzel are pretty high on the list.

    That surprises me that Butch Johnson only had one 100 yd game.

  • Daniel

    11/19/1967 Rentzel, Lance C 223
