Wide receiver showdown: Browns’ Josh Gordon vs. Bears’ Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery
Not only has Cleveland’s Josh Gordon perfected the art of burning defenses in the last month, but his touchdown dance is something he’s spent some time working on as well.
“It’s just when I feel as though we’re cooking [something] up as a team, that’s something I do,” Gordon told ESPN. “Cooking something up.”
That dance involves a hop/gallop while Gordon pretends to be stirring ingredients in a pot. And odds are, it’s a dance Bears fans might have to witness come Sunday afternoon, based on how he’s played in the last month.
But first, just to get an idea of how eye-popping his numbers are, let’s compare to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery:
Gordon, the NFL’s leading receiver, has been unstoppable in the last month, averaging 193.5 receiving yards per game, and a huge chunk of his offensive numbers have come in the last four games:
With Gordon’s average of 127.3 yards per game, he’s within reach of the all-time record of 129.0 yards per game set by the Chargers’ Wes Chandler in 1982. To hit that mark, Gordon needs to average 135.3 yards per game down the stretch — starting on Sunday.
