His 17 receiving touchdowns tied a team record he and Cris Carter held. Moss also joined Jerry Rice as the only NFL players to have two seasons with 17 receiving touchdowns.
2) Keenan Howry set a team record for most punt return yards in a season by a rookie. He ended the season with 247, topping Kevin Miller's rookie mark of 329 from 1978.
3) Kevin Williams' three sacks gave him a season total of 10.5, which ranks second in team history by a rookie. Keith Millard holds the record with 11 in 1985. Williams was the first rookie to lead the team in sacks since Millard's 1985 output.
