Former Ohio State wide receiver Michael Thomas finished his second regular season in the NFL by breaking a pair of records.

By catching six passes for 94 yards in the New Orleans Saints' final game of the regular season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, Thomas finished his sophomore year in the NFL with 104 catches for 1,245 yards.

In the process, Thomas became the first receiver in New Orleans Saints history to catch more than 100 passes in a season, breaking Jimmy Graham's previous franchise record of 99 receptions.

Combined with his 92 receptions for 1,137 yards in his rookie season last year, Thomas' 196 receptions also broke Jarvis Landry's NFL record (194) for the most receptions by a player in his first two seasons in the league.

While the NFL's regular season came to an end on Sunday, Thomas' sophomore season isn't over yet. The Saints clinched the NFC South division title on Sunday and are set to play the Carolina Panthers in the wild card round of the playoffs next week.
