Tony Gonzalez reaches 12,000 yards
Gonzalez caught a 9-yard pass from quarterback Matt Ryan late in the second quarter to surpass the 12,000-yard threshold.
In Atlanta's season-opening loss at Pittsburgh, Gonzalez became the first NFL tight with 1,000 career catches.
Gonzalez spent his first 12 seasons with Kansas City before the Falcons acquired him in a draft-week trade last year.
