The Saints are up to ten unique receivers with at least one catch in tonight's game against the Ravens, and I can find a reference to the Packers having a franchise record of 12 that's been reached multiple times - but what's the overall record for most receivers with a catch in a single game on the one team?

  • I have scoured the internet and cannot find any mention of what the record is. I have found a couple occasions in the preseason where 15 players caught passes (of course in the preseason the rosters are bigger). For the regular season though, I think 12 is probably the record, but I have no way of proving it. – pacoverflow Nov 26 '14 at 21:08

    Having gone through the 242 games with 34+ passes completed by a QB, I'm drawing the line at going through the next 2135 games with 26 (Rodgers' total) to 33 passes completed. In that first range I did find one more 12 reception game. – dlanod Nov 26 '14 at 23:43
  • Are you going through the games manually or using some sort of script? – pacoverflow Nov 26 '14 at 23:49
  • Manually. If I could get to box scores via an SQL query, I could probably extract the info but that doesn't seem available anywhere either. – dlanod Nov 27 '14 at 0:53
  • The most this year was Brees and Alex Smith tied at 11. Bree did it twice and did it week 17 vs TB. I remember this mentioned during the game. I would guess you could go to Elias or pro-football-refernce to try to figure out the all time high. Not sure this is sortable other than going through every box score. But obviously Elias has a way to filter this. – Coach-D Jan 12 '15 at 23:06
