Rams star Cooper Kupp makes NFL history with WR record not even Jerry Rice did
As everything around the Los Angeles Rams changed over the past few weeks, one thing remained constant. Cooper Kupp is still freaking incredible. The star wide receiver has been the rock of receiving core amid roster turnover and injuries, and he has helped keep the Rams on top of the NFL.
Sunday’s matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars brought forth another record for Cooper Kupp. The Rams WR set a new record, being the first player in NFL history to record 100 catches AND 10 receiving touchdowns in the first 12 games of the season.

Against the Jags, Kupp was incredible. He caught 8 passes for 129 yards, including one that ended in a touchdown. It was magnificent seeing the Stafford-Kupp duo regain their past chemistry, just in time to stop a two-game losing skid. At this rate, Kupp might very well end up breaking all of the wide receiver records existing this season.
The Stafford-Kupp duo has helped keep the Rams afloat despite all the turmoil and injuries around them. When asked what makes the wide receiver so special, Stafford said:
“He comes to work every day with the right mindset, “Get better.” He leads the receiver room in a great way so we’re just lucky to have him. I’m happy to be a teammate with him.”
Hopefully, Kupp and the Rams can keep this up in the playoffs. They have all the tools in their arsenal to be successful. Even with Robert Woods out with an injury, their receiving core is still one of the best in the league. Along with a defense that has three elite talents, they are primed and ready to win it all in the postseason.
