    Jason Witten Career Updates

    Witten only needs 17 receiving yards to surpass Michael Irvin as the Cowboys' all-time leader. Irvin has 11,904.

    Witten also can pass Hall of Fame wide receiver Tim Brown for sixth place on the NFL's all-time receptions list with six catches. Brown finished his career in 2004 with 1,094. Witten has 1,089. With the retirement of Anquan Boldin last month, Larry Fitzgerald (in third place with 1,131 catches) and Witten are the only active receivers with 1,000-plus receptions. The Giants' Brandon Marshall enters tonight's game with 941.

    He also will tie Ed "Too Tall" Jones tonight with his 225th game played in a Cowboys uniform. Jones set the record in 1989.

    In addition, he will start his 214th game for the Cowboys and add to his team record with 164 consecutive games as a Dallas starter.

    Witten will appear in his 220th consecutive regular-season game (an active streak second only to Houston punter Shane Lechler with 239).

    He will make his 164th consecutive regular-season start (the third longest active streak behind Eli Manning -- who should reach 200 tonight -- and the Chargers' Philip Rivers with 176).

    Witten's having such a great game, he could pass Cris Carter and Marvin Harrison tonight -- putting him in fourth place for all-time receptions.

    Another big day on tap for Witten:

    Against Denver today he will play his 226th game as a member of the Cowboys, breaking the team record of Ed "Too Tall" Jones.

    With seven catches, he will pass Cris Carter and Marvin Harrison and become fourth on the all-time National Football League receptions list:

    1. Jerry Rice (1985-2005) -- 1,549
    2. Tony Gonzalez (1997-2013) -- 1,325
    3. LARRY FITZGERALD (2004-present) -- 1,134 (three catches today)
    4. Marvin Harrison (1996-2008) -- 1,102
    5. Cris Carter (1987-2002) -- 1,101
    6. JASON WITTEN (2003-present) -- 1,096
    7. Tim Brown (1988-2004) -- 1,094
    8. Terrell Owens (1996-2012) -- 1,078
    9. Anquan Boldin (2003-2016) -- 1,072
    10. Reggie Wayne (2001-2014) -- 1,070
    11. Andre Johnson (2003-2016) -- 1,062
    12. Steve Smith, Sr. (2001-2016) -- 1,031
    13. Isaac Bruce (1994-2009) -- 1,024
    14. Hines Ward (1998-2011) -- 1,000

    Witten needs 54 receiving yards to reach the 12,000 level for his career.

    In addition, he will start his 215th game for the Cowboys and add to his team record with 165 consecutive games as a Dallas starter.

    Witten will appear in his 221st consecutive regular-season game (an active streak second only to Houston punter Shane Lechler with 240).

    He will make his 165th consecutive regular-season start (the third longest active streak behind Eli Manning -- who should reach 201 Monday night -- and the Chargers' Philip Rivers with 177).

    Get to see two of the greats tonight! I wonder if Witten will be able to surpass Fitzgerald. I don't think he'll get Gonzalez or Rice (obviously not Rice), but he and Fitzgerald are battling.

    I would guess that they both will play at least one more season. Fitzgerald really put on a show Monday night with 13 catches for 149 yards and a touchdown. Witten only had one catch for three yards.

    Here is the updated Top 4 in all-time receptions:

    1. Jerry Rice (1985-2005) -- 1,549
    2. Tony Gonzalez (1997-2013) -- 1,325
    3. LARRY FITZGERALD (2004-present) -- 1,147
    4. JASON WITTEN (2003-present) -- 1,107

    Yeah the only way Witten catches Fitz is if he plays another year or two more than him.

    Fitzgerald is such a go-to target in the Cardinals' offense. Witten makes sure catches, but the Cowboys' offense really spreads the ball around.
