In his first season with the Bengals, Chase caught 81 passes for 1,455 yards with 13 touchdowns. With that, he surpassed the NFL record for most receiving yards by a rookie in a single season, eclipsing the mark of 1,400 set last season by Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson.

Chase also set the NFL record for most receiving yards in a single game by a rookie, collecting 266 on 11 receptions while adding three touchdowns against the Chiefs in Week 17. That record was previously held by Jerry Butler of the Buffalo Bills, who had 255 in a 1979 game against the New York Jets.

More history could still be made. Chase needs only 18 yards against the Chiefs to set the mark for most receiving yards in a single postseason by a rookie, which was set in 1999 by Torry Holt of the Rams with 242.
