Davante Adams can break a few Packers single-season records.

The Green Bay Packers still have a lot to play for despite already being crowned NFC North champions. The same is true for star wide receiver Davante Adams in the final three games of the regular season.

Adams, who has caught 91 passes for 1,144 yards and 14 touchdowns so far this season, has the chance to break multiple single-season franchise records in the final three games.

Had he not missed two games due to injury, he’d be cruising towards setting new franchise records. But given how well he’s been playing, he could still pull it off in only 14 games.

Note that these record statistics are according to Pro Football Reference.

The first is for most receptions in a single season for the Packers. The record is currently held by Sterling Sharpe when he had 112 receptions in the 1993 season. Adams currently has 91 catches — good for ninth-best in Packers history — and is on pace for 115 after 14 games. If he averages just over seven catches per game, he’ll break the record.

The next is touchdown catches. Adams is currently tied in fourth place with 14 touchdowns this season. The record is also held by Sharpe when he caught 18 touchdowns in the ’94 season. With five more in the next three games, Adams will become the new record holder.

Finally, there is receiving yards. This record belongs to Jordy Nelson when he put up 1,519 yards in the 2014 season. Adams is currently at 1,144, which is 375 yards behind Nelson’s record. To get the 376 yards needed to break the record, Adams will need to average 125.3 yards per game.

This will be the hardest for Adams to reach, but given the fact he’s averaging a league-best 104 yards per game this season, one monster performance could help him achieve a great average in the final three games.

There’s no doubt Adams is having an all-time great season for a Packers wide receiver. Had he not missed two games to injury, he might’ve beaten all three records with ease.

But given the way he’s playing, I wouldn’t put it past him to still achieve all three.
