Bills’ Terrell Owens has 1,000th career reception

Terrell Owens is the sixth player in NFL history to catch 1,000

passes.

Owens reached the milestone with an 8-yard catch for Buffalo in

the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons. He

had a 10-yard catch from Brian Brohm, making his first start,

earlier in the drive.

Owens entered the game needing two catches to reach 1,000 for

his career, which began in 1996. He reached the milestone in 203

games. Only Marvin Harrison and Jerry Rice reached 1,000 career

receptions in fewer games.

Atlanta’s Tony Gonzalez began the day six catches from

1,000.
