Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little had a breakout performance in his team's Week 9 upset victory over the Baltimore Ravens. 

Little led all wideouts from both teams on the day, amassing seven receptions for 122 yards in a huge win. 

The Browns' Twitter account summed up his performance:

His seven catches were the most he's recorded in a game in his three-year career, and he posted his most yardage since his rookie season. 

Perhaps the most enticing development from Little's performance on Sunday revolved around the fact that he led the Browns in targets with nine.

Budding star Josh Gordon had seven targets, and caught just three balls for 44 yards. 

Meanwhile, tight end Jordan Cameron only managed one catch on five targets for four yards.

While there's no doubting that Gordon is still the No. 1 wideout in Cleveland and Cameron is a dangerous pass-catcher, Little's emergence will give the Browns more options. With secondaries flocking toward Gordon, Little is likely to continue sneaking under the radar.    

In two games under quarterback Jason Campbell, it's been a tale of two performances for Little. He caught just one pass for eight yards the week prior in a loss to Kansas City.

However, if Campbell and Little can develop the chemistry they showed on Sunday, the third-year receiver could end up being a viable bench option.
