08:05 AM ET 11.02 | Only four catches away from No. 50 on this NFL season, Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is on the verge of recording that mark for the 15th straight season. As a rookie in 1997, he caught 33 passes. He caught 59 in 1998 and he had a career-high 102 catches in 2004. "I've got to give credit obviously to Matt (Ryan)," Gonzalez said. "Matt is playing really, really well right now. This is the best football he's ever played in his career and I am not surprised by that. As he goes, we go." Gonzalez creates receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones for getting him one-on-one matchups. "I've always felt if I have a one-on-one matchup I should be able to win the majority of times," Gonzalez said. "I'm not going to win them all. But for the most part I am going to win them."
