Chase Claypool made history on Sunday. Again.
The native of Abbotsford, B.C. recorded a three-yard touchdown run to put the Pittsburgh Steelers ahead 31-7 against the Cleveland Browns. The score came on the same fly sweep he’s capitalized on previously this season.

The touchdown made Claypool the fifth receiver in NFL history since 1970 to reach six touchdowns through five career games, tying Randy Moss, Calvin Ridley, Willie Gault, and Martavis Bryant.
Claypool made history in his second career game, scoring the longest scrimmage touchdown ever among Canadian-born players. The play went for 84 yards and ended in the receiver’s first career touchdown.
He did it again last week when he became the first NFL rookie to score four touchdowns in a single game in the Super Bowl era. Claypool was also the first Steelers’ rookie to score a rushing and receiving touchdown in the same game since Franco Harris in 1972.
Claypool is quickly developing into a major red zone threat.
