Years in NFL:
16 Furthest he’s advanced:
NFC Championship Game (this season)
The NFL’s active leader in career starts entered last weekend’s divisional round as a 16-year NFL veteran with zero career postseason wins. With that ghost haunting his Hall of Fame legacy, Gonzalez’s Falcons jumped out to a 27-7 second-half lead, only to see his team trail 28-27 with less than a minute to go. Horror led to ecstasy as Matt Ryan led Atlanta on a game-winning drive (with Gonzalez making the key catch) and No. 88 responded with tears of joy (or was that relief?) in the end zone. - Peter Schrager
