Stefon Diggs Already Owns An NFL Record

New, comments
Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

Minnesota Vikings' rookie wide receiver Stefon Diggs has most certainly made an impression over the course of the four games he's been active for. But now, just four games into his NFL career, he's already done something that no other NFL wide receiver has.

Per Randall Liu, the NFL's Director of NFC Communications, Diggs is the first receiver in NFL history to have at least 85 yards in each of his first four NFL games.

Here are the performances that Diggs has put up this far.

Week Opponent Receptions Yards Touchdowns
4 Denver Broncos 6 87 0
6 Kansas City Chiefs 7 129 0
7 Detroit Lions 6 108 1
8 Chicago Bears 6 95 1

How the heck was this guy a healthy scratch for Minnesota's first three games again? Eh, never mind. . .nobody actually knows for sure.

It's pretty impressive to think that, of all the great wide receivers there have been in the history of the National Football League, nobody had ever put up at least 85 yards in their first four NFL games until Diggs did it.

I'm not sure it's arguable that he's the best wide receiver on the Vikings' roster at this point, and he's managed to play his way onto the short list of Offensive Rookie of the Year candidates. That's some pretty solid work for a guy that managed to last all the way to the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Congratulations to Stefon Diggs on making his way into the NFL record books in very short order.
