Despite outcome to Cowboys, Higbee, Gurley + Kupp achieve new milestones

Rams tight end Tyler Higbee established a new franchise record, running back Todd Gurley moved up the list for another and wide receiver Cooper Kupp achieved a career first in Sunday's 44-21 loss to the Cowboys.

With his 111 yards on 12 catches, Higbee became the first tight end in franchise history to have three 100-yard receiving games in a single season.

He also needs just 126 receiving yards to set a franchise record for most single-season receiving yards by a tight end. The former Western Kentucky standout currently has 546 on 52 receptions after Sunday.

Gurley moved him into a tie with Eric Dickerson and Steven Jackson for second all-time in rushing touchdowns in franchise history at 56 after reaching the endzone on a seven-yard run late in the fourth quarter. Two more rushing touchdowns will give him sole possession of second, while four will put him first, surpassing Marshall Faulk's 58.

Kupp, meanwhile, surpassed 1,000 yards receiving on the season, marking the first time in his career he's accomplished the feat. It was achieved when he made his first catch of the game, an 11-yard grab with 5:18 left in the third quarter, and he ended the contest with 41 yards on six catches, plus one touchdown, to give him 1,031 receiving yards through 14 games.

The trio will look to build on their performances Saturday against the 49ers in San Francisco.
