Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen continues to be one of the league's best at the position. The three-time Pro Bowler is coming off an insane performance against the New York Jets in Week 11, hauling in 16 receptions for 145 yards and a touchdown.

Allen's dominance against the Jets helped him pass both Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout Antonio Brown in total receptions through a player's first 96 games.

While 96 games isn't a standard number to measure a player's performace, it still demonstrates the success that Allen has had in a short amount of time. Following in the path of two great wideouts and even passing them in a milestone shows that Allen is well on his way to a memorable career.

Jones and Brown both have 134 games under their belt in their careers so far. Brown (859) currently has the edge over Jones (842) in career receptions.

This season, Allen is averaging 8.1 receptions and 83.5 yards per game. His 81 receptions through 10 games leads the entire league, while he ranks ninth in yards with 835. He has also hauled in 6 TDs this year, including a current four-game streak with at least 1 touchdown grab.

Allen will look to make it five straight games with a touchdown in Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills.
