ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills receiver Terrell Owens passed Tim Brown for third on the NFL's career yards receiving list.

Owens passed Brown with a 6-yard catch 6 minutes into the fourth quarter of Buffalo's season finale against Indianapolis on Sunday. With three catches for 50 yards, Owens hit 14,936 career yards receiving, two more than Brown had during his 17-year career that ended in 2004.

T.O., who scored earlier in the game on a 41-yard catch, then added to his total with a 15-yard reception later in the series.

The latest milestone came a week after Owens became the sixth NFL player to have 1,000 catches.
