Throwback Thursday: Art Monk Sets A New Record


For today's Throwback Thursday moment presented by SUBWAY® restaurants, looks back at Art Monk setting the career receptions record during the 1992 season.

Most 34-3 games are rather forgetful, but Monday, Oct. 12, 1992 was a night to remember for Redskins receiver Art Monk.

On that night, as the Redskins crushed the Broncos on Monday Night Football, Monk made history.


With his 10-yard reception from quarterback Mark Rypien in the fourth quarter, Monk passed Steve Largent for most career receptions. Monk finished the game with seven receptions for 69 yards. For his career, Monk totaled 840 catches, 788 of which came in his 14 seasons with the Redskins.
