Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has reached another milestone on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, passing Hall of Fame wideout Terrell Owens for No. 2 on the NFL career receiving yards list.

The 15-year-pro only needed 33 yards to pass Owens and it came in fourth quarter.

Fitzgerald now needs 52 catches to pass Tony Gonzalez for No. 2 in career receptions. He sits at seventh all-time in touchdown receptions with 112.

The 35-year-old has the most receiving yards of any player through his first nine playoff games with 942. He has four consecutive playoff games with 100-plus yards receiving, the most in NFL history.

Fitzgerald’s three-touchdown performance in the 2008 NFC Championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles is tied for the most in NFL history.

The Cardinals, currently sitting at 2-6, have not made the playoffs since their 13-3 season in 2015 under Bruce Arians. Arizona got to the divisional round against the Green Bay Packers where Fitzgerald caught eight passes for 176 yards and a draw play from quarterback Carson Palmer in an overtime win.

Fitzgerald still needs well over 6,000 yards to catch Jerry Rice at 22,895 yards receiving.
