The guy on the right is good.

Is there anything you could say about the career Tony Gonzalez has had that wouldn’t end up being a drastic understatement? The guy is football.

He caught his 50th pass of the season during the 19-13 win over the Cowboys, which set yet another mark the greatest tight end to ever play the game can put on his resume.

He joined WR Jerry Rice — great company, if you didn’t know — as the only players in NFL history to record 15 seasons with 50 or more receptions.

Gonzalez is the only player in NFL history to do it in 15 consecutive seasons.

Gonzalez also has the most consecutive 60-catch seasons with 13. He’s well on his way to achieving another.

And he’s still one touchdown away from 100 for his career.

Savor the moment, Falcons fans. You’re watching a special one.
