Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald passes Terrell Owens for No. 2 in career receiving yards

Larry Fitzgerald moved up the career receiving yards list against the Chiefs on Sunday. 

The 35-year-old Cardinals receiver passed Terrell Owens to take over the No. 2 spot in all-time receiving yards. Fitzgerald reached that milestone with a fourth-quarter reception Sunday, exceeding Owens’ total of 15,934 receiving yards. 

Fitzgerald now trails only 49ers legend Jerry Rice, who has 22,895 yards. NFL Research notes Fitzgerald has averaged 70.4 receiving yards per game during his career, which means he would have to play 99 more games to catch Rice.

Entering Sunday’s game, Fitzgerald needed 33 yards to pass Owens. He finished the game with six catches for 50 yards and now has 1,274 receptions for 15,952 career receiving yards.
