Witten 9 Catches From Breaking TE Reception Record

IRVING, Texas (AP) _ Kansas City's Tony Gonzalez in 2004 set the
single-season record for receptions by tight ends -- at 102.

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is sitting on 94 catches
going into the regular season finale against Washington on Sunday.

A win or a loss hardly matters to the top-seeded Cowboys. But Coach Wade Phillips has said he'd like anyone who is close to a milestone -- to get it.

Witten is already fourth on the single-season catch list and ninth on the yardage list at 1,121 -- both are Cowboys records, too.

Regardless of where he finishes on the single-season list, he's also tied the single-game record with 15 catches.

At least, that's the record going into Sunday. Gonzalez is still going strong for Kansas City. He has 92 catches as the Chief prepare to face the New York Jets.
