FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Five games into his 16th NFL season, Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez feels reborn on the football field.
It's not so much that Gonzalez leads the league with 39 catches. When the year began, Gonzalez was already the NFL's No. 2-career leading receiver.
What's making this season special for Gonzalez is the versatility of Atlanta's offense. With quarterback Matt Ryan thriving in his fifth year, Gonzalez says he can't imagine how tough it is for opponents to contain the unbeaten Falcons.
Last week at Washington, Gonzalez caught 13 passes - the second-best game of his career - for 123 yards and one touchdown while the Redskins struggled to cover him while also accounting for Roddy White, Julio Jones and Michael Turner.
The Falcons (5-0) host Oakland (1-3) on Sunday.
