Chase finished with 11 catches for 266 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-31 victory, clinching the AFC North and passing Jefferson's record of 1,400 yards in the process.

Following the game, Chase said he was overwhelmed by the moment.

"Everything is overwhelming right now. I'm excited, but overwhelmed," Chase said after the victory.

After his record was broken, Jefferson showed nothing but love towards his friend and former teammate.

Another LSU legend, Joe Burrow, is also making some history in Cincinnati. The second-year signal-caller had another outstanding performance, finishing with 446 passing yards and four touchdowns, making fantasy owners in the last week of their season very happy.

It was the second straight week Burrow threw for four touchdowns after he torched the Baltimore Ravens for 525 yards and four scores in Cincinnati's previous win.

The Bengals clinched the AFC North with their win over Kansas City, sitting at the No. 3 spot in the conference. This is their first playoff appearance since 2015, but the real question that needs to be asked is can Burrow and Chase provide enough firepower for the Bengals to win their first postseason game in over 30 years?
