Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua caught 15 passes for 147 yards in the team's 30-23 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, breaking the NFL's single-game record for receptions by a rookie and setting an overall league mark with 25 catches in the first two games of his career.
One week after he recorded 10 catches for 119 yards in his NFL debut, Nacua -- with his 10th catch on Sunday -- eclipsed Earl Cooper's record, set in 1980, for most receptions by a player through his first two games.
On the next play, Nacua broke the 100-yard receiving mark to become the first player to record 10 receptions and 100 receiving yards in each of his first two NFL games.
"He's a stud," Sean McVay said. "The game makes sense to him. Physically and mentally tough. Works really hard. He's very inquisitive. He asks a lot of questions, and he's got great guys to be able to lean on.
"His rapport with [quarterback] Matthew [Stafford], where they're able to bounce things off of one another, I think that's been a real positive, and Puka's going to continue to improve."
