In the Wild Card round of the 2019 NFL Playoffs, DK Metcalf put up historic numbers in Philadelphia. With 160 yards and a touchdown, he set a franchise record for receiving yards in a playoff game. That mark was also the highest ever for a rookie in NFL Playoff history.

Fast forward 10 months and the Seahawks were back in Philadelphia. In spite of the high bar he set for himself, Metcalf exceeded his rookie mark with a career-best 177 receiving yards.

After the Week 12 game, Metcalf's season total is now 1,039 receiving yards. He became the fastest player in franchise history to hit that mark in a season, doing it in just 11 games. The previous best, shared by Steve Largent (1979, 1985) and Darrell Jackson (2004) was 13 games.
