Raiders tight end Darren Waller did it all in Las Vegas’ big Week 1 win against the Ravens, but on Sunday against the Steelers, Waller will have a chance to accomplish a feat unseen in the modern NFL.

According to the Associated Press’ Josh Dubow, Waller needs 100 receiving yards against Pittsburgh to become the first TE since the NFL/AFL merger to have five consecutive games with 100 yards or more in receptions. His streak goes back to last season.

Darren Waller is the 1st #Raiders player w/ 4 straight 100-yard receiving games dating to last season. If he tops 100 yards this week he will be 1st TE in NFL since merger to do it 5 straight games

Notice that Waller has already set a Raiders record during his hot streak. Dubow also pointed out the other tight ends to have four games with 100 or more receiving yards. The list reads Jimmy Graham (twice), Travis Kelce, Tyler Higbee, and ex-NFL star Tony Gonzalez.

It’s no sure bet that Waller will make history, but after being targeted 19 times by quarterback Derek Carr against the Ravens, it’s likely Waller will have his chances to rack up the catches and yards on Sunday, all in the name of helping the Raiders go 2-0 on the young season.
