SEATTLE (AP) - Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez has added another NFL record to his resume with his 12th straight season of 60 or more receptions.

Gonzalez had four catches Sunday against Seattle to give him 62 for the season. Gonzalez previously shared the mark with Jerry Rice.

Gonzalez says bettering a record that Rice held is a major accomplishment and one of the career accolades that he’ll remember. He says it also reminds him how lucky he’s been to stay healthy and productive for so long.

Gonzalez is in his second season with the Falcons. His most receptions came in 2004 with Kansas City when he had 102. Last year, Gonzalez had 83 catches with Atlanta.
