Roddy White Sets Falcons Franchise Touchdown Reception Record

New, comments

With his 58th touchdown in a losing effort, Roddy hits the record books.

The Atlanta Falcons don't have much to cheer about after this week, but at least Roddy White had one for the record books.

With his short touchdown catch in the fourth quarter, Roddy White reached 58 receiving touchdowns for his career, all in an Atlanta uniform. That gives him the most in franchise history, one ahead of Terrance Mathis, who was one of the franchise's better receiving options. It's a testament to White's tenure and skill that he was able to reach the milestone, even if he's had a lackluster year for this Falcons team.

While we're all feeling justifiably unhappy about the team at the moment, it's worth giving Roddy his due considering how much he's given to this football team. Congratulations, #84.
