Steve Smith Sr. stat watch: Week 4

Wide receiver Steve Smith Sr., playing his final NFL season, is padding some potential-Hall-of-Fame statistics this year with the Ravens.

Each week, we'll update where the 36-year-old stands on some all-time lists, recap any historic achievements and look at what milestones he might be nearing.


Week 3 vs. the Bengals: 13 catches, 186 yards, 2 touchdowns

After torching the Cincinnati Bengals secondary, Smith has 25 catches for 349 yards and the two scores this season.


Career receptions: 940

Smith needs four receptions to pass former Raven Derrick Mason (943) for 15th all-time. Former Pittsburgh Steelers star Hines Ward and his 1,000 career catches, 10th all-time, is a realistic target.

Career receiving yards: 13,611

Smith needs 289 yards to pass Chris Carter for 10th on the all-time receiving yards list. If he continues his torrid pace this season -- unlikely -- Smith would finish the year with 1,861 receiving yards, which would give him 15,123 in his career. That would be the sixth-most in NFL history, just behind tight end Tony Gonzalez (15,127).

Career touchdowns: 83

Smith is 50th all-time and 75 of those touchdowns have come on receptions. Climbing the career leaders in this category will be tough, but top-40 is a realistic goal.

Career 100-yard games: 49
