In his third NFL season, Torrey Smith finally achieved the 1,000-yard mark in a single season.

By catching three passes for 50 yards in the first half of Baltimore's game against Detroit, Smith surpassed the 1,000-yard barrier for the first time in his career. At the half, with the Ravens leading 9-7, Smith had a total of 1,013 yards for the 2013 season.

This is the first time since 2009 that a Ravens player has accounted for over 1,000 receiving yards. Derrick Mason was the last to do so, catching 73 passes for 1,028 yards and seven touchdowns that 2009 season.

The single-season record is held by Michael Jackson at 1,201 yards, set in 1996. With two more games after the Lions game concludes, Smith does have a chance at etching his name into the Ravens' record books.
