Kansas City's Tony Gonzalez broke the NFL record for receptions by a tight end, catching his 816th career pass early in the third quarter against the New York Jets on Sunday. Gonzalez, who came in 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 17 yards. "It's honestly one of the only positive things I can take from the season," Gonzalez said after the Chiefs' 13-10 overtime loss. "I was able to go out there and surpass a really good tight end in Shannon Sharpe. Individually, it's been a pretty good year, statistically."

Chiefs' Edwards: Sorry For His Choice Of Words Toward Fans
Coach Herm Edwards apologized to Chiefs' fans Tuesday for telling them to "get over it," and said he should have chosen his words more carefully in talking about their reaction to his team's long losing streak. The Chiefs have lost seven in a row in Edwards' second season and could be headed toward their worst record in two decades. A loss to Tennessee on Sunday before an angry, half-empty stadium closed out a 2-6 home record -- their worst since the 1977 team was 1-6 in Arrowhead.
Chiefs' Croyle Will Start Sunday
The Chiefs declared Brodie Croyle to be their starting quarterback for Sunday?s game at Denver after he practiced for the second straight day. ?The last two days, everything has gone pretty well,? said Croyle, who took a knee to the back two weeks ago against Oakland and missed last week?s game against San Diego. ?I?m ready to get back out there and get playing.? There?s a possibility of snow in Denver for Sunday?s game. That would be a test for Croyle, born and raised in Alabama. ?Let?s see ? this was the third career snow in my life,? he said. ?The game two weeks ago was the coldest game I ever played."
