NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans wide receiver showed Monday night that he still has plenty of juice left in his 31-year old legs. His 80-yard touchdown catch against the Steelers was the longest reception of his 10-year career and put him in some rarified air among NFL receivers.
Washington is now tied for third with four receptions of 70-plus yards since 2010, trailing only Victor Cruz (7) and Jordy Nelson (6).
The consistency that Washington has shown is also impressive. Washington and Jordy Nelson are the NFL's only receivers to have a reception of 70-plus yards in four of the last five seasons (Nelson has a 70-plus yard catch in each of the last five seasons).
Here's how the list shakes out.
MOST TD RECEPTIONS OF 70-plus YARDS SINCE 2010
7 – Victor Cruz
6 – Jordy Nelson
4 – Nate Washington
4 – Josh Gordon
4 – DeSean Jackson
4 – Calvin Johnson
4 – Julio Jones
