It appears Chase Claypool is not done adding his name to the record books, as his four touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles makes him the first Canadian-born player in NFL history to do so.
Earlier in the afternoon, Claypool became the first Canadian-born player with three touchdowns in a game since Rueben Mayes accomplished the feat in 1990.

The Abbotsford, B.C., native had seven receptions for 110 yards and three touchdowns while adding a rushing touchdown. His four touchdowns are also the most by a Steelers rookie in a single game.
Back in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos, Claypool scored the longest touchdown from scrimmage in league history by a Canadian-born player with an 84-yard reception.
With five touchdowns now so far this season, the 22-year-old is over halfway to eclipsing Mayes' mark from back in 1986, when he had eight touchdowns during his rookie season with the New Orleans Saints.
