In the first quarter of the Kansas City Chiefs 32-29 win over the New Orleans Saints, wide receiver Tyreek Hill caught his 15th touchdown of the season — his 17th total.

The reception tied former Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe for the most in a single season in franchise history. Bowe caught 15 during his Pro Bowl season in 2010.
Hill is now tied with 13 other players in 21st place for the most single-season receiving touchdowns in NFL history. If he can reach 18 receiving scores, he’ll join a group of just four other players — Randy Moss, Jerry Rice, Mark Clayton and Cris Carter — to have that many in a single season.
His 17 total touchdowns are the 61st-most all-time by any NFL player. He’s seventh on the all-time franchise list for most single-season touchdowns, needing just two more to tie with running backs Abner Haynes, Larry Johnson and Jamaal Charles for fourth-most in the organization’s history.
