Gonzalez, who entered the game needing three catches to break Shannon Sharpe's mark, tied it with a 7-yard reception on the Chiefs' first play of the second half. Two plays later, Gonzalez broke the record by taking a short pass from Brodie Croyle and gaining for 17 yards.
Gonzalez, selected to his ninth straight Pro Bowl earlier this month, also holds the all-time record for tight ends with 66 touchdown catches. He entered the game with 92 catches for 1,108 yards -- his third 1,000-yard season -- and five touchdowns.
