As of Monday morning, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced that the jerseys — among other gear — of both quarterback Justin Herbert and wide receiver Keenan Allen have been placed in Canton in accordance with both players setting NFL records during the 2020 NFL season.
For Herbert, the list of records goes on and on. To name a few of the more prominent marks, Herbert set the rookie record for completions (396), passing touchdowns (31), total touchdowns (36), and games with 300+ yards passing (8). In just 15 games, he threw for 4,336 yards, which fell just 39 yards short of Andrew Luck’s record set back in 2012.
Allen gets his jersey and gloves in Canton due to him setting the NFL record for the most receptions by a player in their first 100 games. However, Allen set the mark with 623 in just his 99th game, breaking Antonio Brown’s record of 622. Unfortunately, the Slayer was hobbled in his 100th game and managed just one more reception to his high mark. Allen missed the final two games of 2020 and finished with 992 yards a eight touchdowns, which tied a previous career high.
