Steelers WR Martavis Bryant Ties NFL Record With 5th Touchdown Catch

All Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant seems to do is score touchdowns and thanks to him scoring two more Sunday night in the win over the Baltimore Ravens, he’s already found himself in the NFL record books.

Bryant, who has now played in all of three NFL games, has caught five touchdown passes and that ties the NFL record set by former Steelers tight end Eric Green for the most posted by any player over the first three games of his career.

Green, who was drafted by the Steelers in the first round of the 1990 NFL Draft out of Liberty, caught five touchdown passes in his first two games played in as a rookie. All five of those receptions came from 10 yards and in.

Green would go on to catch his sixth touchdown pass in his fourth game played and ended his rookie season with seven in total.

Bryant, who was drafted in the fourth round this past May, has caught a total of 10 passes in the last three games for 167 yards and the five touchdowns.

In addition to him tying Green’s NFL record, he also became the Steelers first rookie with touchdown catches in three straight games since 2005 when tight end Heath Miller caught one in four straight games.
