Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp has just wrapped up an incredible season, earning the top honor for receivers in the NFL – the triple crown.
During the NFL’s new extra-long 17-game schedule, Kupp surpassed all his fellow wideouts in all three columns of the record book with the most receptions, most receiving yards, and most receiving touchdowns.
The NFL reports Kupp finished the regular season with 145 receptions, 1,947 receiving yards, and 16 receiving touchdowns, all of which led the league.

Sports Spectrum also noted Kupp was just four catches shy of the all-time mark set by Michael Thomas in 2019 and 18 receiving yards away from setting a new single-season record (Calvin Johnson, 2012).
Even though the Rams lost their final season game to the San Francisco 49ers 27-24 in overtime last Sunday, the team won their division with the third NFC West title in the last five years, thanks to the Seattle Seahawks victory over the Arizona Cardinals.
“Obviously, you don’t want to take for granted the difficulty of winning a division title,” Kupp said after the regular-season finale. “At the same time, a loss never feels good. The focus is really on getting ready for next week, just being able to respond from this thing. We’re going to watch the film, make the changes that we need to and then be ready to respond with a great week of practice and play a very good Cardinals team.”
