In their Wild Card Round match against the Philadelphia Eagles, he had 7 catches for 160 yards and one touchdown, setting the NFL record for most receiving yards by a rookie in a playoff game.

He built on his impressive rookie season and improved on almost every aspect in his sophomore year. He finished the 2020 campaign playing and starting in all 16 games, receiving 83 passes for 1,303 yards, and scoring 10 touchdowns.
