Green Bay recipient Davante Adams became the first player in NFL history to have at least 100 receptions with 18 touchdowns in a season when he scored a 6-6 in the Packers' 35:16 win in Chicago late in the fourth quarter. Yard scoring pass was scored by Bears on Sunday.
Adams, who finished with six catches for 46 yards and one score, finished the regular season with 115 receptions and 18 touchdowns in just 14 games.
Adams & # 39; 18 touchdown catches rank third in NFL history, followed by Randy Moss of New England (23 in 2007) and Jerry Rice of San Francisco (22 in 1987).
His 18 touchdowns went to Sterling Sharpe, who set the 1994 franchise record for most of the season. Mark Clayton also had 18 touchdowns for the Miami Dolphins in 1984.
The NFC North Champion Packers took first place in the NFC playoffs with a 35:16 win and finished a regular season 13: 3.
Before Adams completed the win with his scoring, he was one of the three players in league history with at least 100 receptions and 17 touchdowns in one season.
Former Minnesota star Cris Carter had a career high of 122 receptions in 1995 and the best 17 career touchdowns. Moss made 111 career-level receptions and scored 17 touchdowns for the Vikings in 2003.
Carter and Moss were inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
