In doing so, Thielen tied former Detroit Lions great Calvin Johnson for most consecutive games with 100 yards receiving; Johnson accomplished it in 2012. Thielen is now the only player in NFL history to start a season with eight straight 100-yard receiving games.
Thielen finished with a near-season-low 103 yards on seven catches and a late touchdown. He leads the league in receiving with 925 yards. Thielen is on pace for 1,850 receiving yards, which would be third all-time.
