On the opening drive of the second half, Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez caught his 1000th career reception in the National Football League. Unfortunately, the catch came on a big play during the Falcons’ opening drive of the second half. The Steelers were able to stop the Falcons from reaching the red zone, but a 39-yard FG by Matt Bryant has put the Falcons up 6-3 early in the 3rd.
