The Buccs managed to walk away with the bragging rights, thanks to an exultant display from their star quarterback, Tom Brady and a collective showdown from their wide receivers, Antonio Brown and Chris Godwin.
As we are accustomed to the aggressive game of American football, one of the most important aspects of the sport is catching. The better you catch, the more are your chances of conversion into a touchdown. With all said and done, the ongoing edition of NFL has arrived in its fifth week and the players have belted out an impeccable showdown so far to underpin the competitive values of the sport. In this story, we will be taking a quick glance at the five players with the highest number of catches without a fumble in NFL 2021. So without further ado, let us take a look upon the most receptions by an NFL player without a drop-
Cooper Kupp – 37 catches
Cooper Kupp has established himself as one of the most emphatic monikers of the sport and the Los Angeles Rams’ wide receiver has racked up substantial digits to cement his iconic pedestal. In the ongoing season, he is the man with the highest number of catches without a single fumble as his stats read a staggering 37 receptions. He has also run for a blistering 523 yards which have him ranked at the ace of the list. They say catches win matches and guess what, Los Angeles Rams are in the second position of the NFC West with four victories.
Davante Adams – 31 catches
The Green Bay Packers have banked heavily upon the burly shoulders of Davante Adams to give fruition to the rollicking passes of their star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. He has managed to bag 31 receptions and blast for a screaming 373 yards. He has also registered 19 receiving touchdowns that have underlined Adams’ brilliance as a wide receiver. The Packers have managed to boss the NFC North so far with three victories and one defeat.
Tyreek Hill – 30 catches
Hill missed out on the ace by a solitary catch as he could rack up 30 catches and was named in the third spot of the list.

The Kansas City Chiefs have failed to impose an impressive showdown until now as they have won two and lost two and are languishing in the rock-bottom of the AFC West.
