Terry McLaurin hits season milestone for first time in NFL career
With two defensive touchdowns, Washington’s defense has been the story of the game against the San Francisco 49ers.
But it’d be a shame if we missed the accomplishment Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin hit during the game. For the first time in his career, McLaurin has achieved the feat of 1,000 receiving yards in a single season.
The first of many

It took just two catches in Sunday’s game for McLaurin to hit the 1,000-yard mark. The first was an 11-yard reception then a 13-yard catch and run two plays later.
This is just McLaurin’s second season in the NFL after a successful career at Ohio State. In 2019, McLaurin started all 14 games he played, catching 58 passes for 919 yards and seven touchdowns.
McLaurin has already passed his reception numbers and yards numbers from last season with three-plus games remaining. He has not produced the same when it comes to touchdowns, but the yards and catch increase should be a good sign that McLaurin is improving and continues to be a major factor in the Washington offense.
