#HistoryTracker13: Evans needs 40 yards to make history

Mike Evans is closing in on a piece of history that no one has managed to do previously.

The seventh year wideout is 40 yards shy of becoming the first receiver in the NFL to record "7 consecutive 1,000 yard seasons." Evans tied Hall-of-Fame wide receiver Randy Moss last season, as the two are the only players to ever record 6 straight season of 1,000 yards.

In the below article, I wrote on December 4th that Evans could reach the milestone while needing 387 yards.

The article received mixed reviews (mostly negative) from the fan base, with certain unmentioned fans stating things such as, "it won't happen" and "Tom is here, those don't matter." But after dominant games against Atlanta and Detroit, Mike Evans has busted out for 16 receptions for 347 yards and 2 touchdowns.

With one game remaining on the schedule, Evans has the chance to eclipse the millennium mark in yards to make history, just as he has done since being drafted in 2014. After next week, it'll be safe to say "I told you so" while Mike pounds his name into the NFL record books while also seeing the postseason for the first time in his career.
