DeVonta Smith Sets Single-Season Record for Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles dominated the NFC in 2022 with former Alabama players Jalen Hurts and DeVonta Smith each setting records for the season. While Hurts was chasing after MVP recognition, Smith was making a name for himself as one of the most dominant receivers in the NFL.
Smith became the 3rd player in the 2022 season to have 3, three-game streaks of 110 receiving yards in a single season on Sunday, while also having the most receiving yards in an Eagles player's first two seasons. Smith finished the 2022 regular season with 88 receptions for 1,129 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Smith's outstanding regular season performance helped the Eagles become the first team in the NFL to clinch a spot in the playoffs. The victory over the New York Giants on Sunday helped secure a home field advantage for Philadelphia as the number 1 seed in the playoffs, as well as the NFC East Championship.
