John Brown continues impressive yardage streak

October 28, 2019

There weren't a lot of positives from the Buffalo Bills' offensive performance in their 31-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at New Era Field.

There was, however, a yardage streak from wide receiver John Brown that stayed alive after the Week 8 matchup. 

Despite the sporadic rain throughout the day and consistent, heavy winds, Brown still hauled in five receptions for 54 yards. By passing the 50-yard mark again, Brown continues to be one of just two wide receivers to have at least 50 receiving yards in every game this season. 

The other player that meets that qualification is New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas. Not a bad player to be in the same company with, right?

Brown alse became the first Bills player since 1963 to have 50 yards or more receiving in his first seven games with the club.  

While Brown hasn't blown up the box score this season, as he has struggled to connect with second-year quarterback Josh Allen on the home run plays, he has been the definition of reliable and consistent. Not only has he surpassed 50 yards in each game, he has been closer to the 70-100 yard range week-in and week-out. 

The veteran wide receiver has had less than five receptions in a game just once. Both of his receiving touchdowns this year are game-winning scores that have come in the fourth quarter. 

Buffalo's offense is more efficient when Brown is heavily involved. Knowing at the time of his signing in free agency that he would be on pace for almost 80 receptions and over 1,000 yards? The organization has to be ecstatic with what they have gotten out of him.
