Falcons rolling, hoping to give Tony Gonzalez his first NFL playoff win

Mike Ehrmann

Atlanta's star tight end is still looking for his first career playoff win.

There's no doubt Tony Gonzalez will be in the Hall of Fame, but there was plenty of doubt about whether or not he'd enter having won a playoff game in his career.

Gonzalez, 36, is in his 16th year and has seen just about everything in the league. He's caught touchdowns in the postseason from three different quarterbacks, including today's nifty score in the back of the end zone to put Atlanta up 10-0 early on against Seattle. Gonzalez has 5 catches, 32 yards and that score through three quarters.

With a list of accolades that includes being the first tight end with 1,000 career receptions, 13 Pro Bowls, 10 All-Pro selections and over 100 receiving touchdowns, it's that Number One -- a Super Bowl win -- that has been so elusive. A performance like today's is a good start.
