Great stat for Holmes.

Career stats for 3rd Down:

Games-18
Rec-24
Yds-460
Avg-19.2
1st downs-23
TD-2

That's 24 receptions for 23 first downs. Pretty damn impressive if you ask me. I don't know how many attempt have gone his way, but I can't imagine it being a large amount.

24 Receptions, 23 first downs, 2 TD's?  It's been a while since I was in school, but that math doesn't seem to work.  When you score a TD, do you also get credit for a first down?

Cleveland:  The only NFL city to never play in, or host, a Superbowl.  That bears repeating.

Yes, you do.
Basically, all but one of his 3rd down receptions went for a 1st down with 2 of them resulting in TDs.

Sick stat, if accurate.

I went to ESPN to cross reference the stats to see if the yahoo sports ones are accurate, but ESPN doesn't keep track of first downs. All the other numbers matched up though. I can't be sure, but I think it's legit. Really impressive if it is.

For what it's worth, footballoutsiders ranks Holmes the NFL's 3rd-most productive WR.
