Terrell Owens

A Timeline of Terrell Owens' Accomplishments


Terrell Owens has an image as a bad boy in the NFL. He says what he wants, he does what he wants, but he always shows up ready to play. And his list of accomplishments on the field rivals his well-documented record of misbehaving.

  • 1996 - Owens’ 10 starts for the San Francisco 49ers were the most for a rookie receiver since Gene Washington played in 14 in 1969.

  • 1996 - In his first start, a game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Owens caught four passes for 94 yards, including 45-yard touchdown to tie the game late in fourth quarter.

  • 1997 - Emerging as the team’s No. 1 receiver, Owens nearly doubled his rookie numbers with 60 receptions for 936 yards and eight touchdowns.

  • 1998 - Recording more than 1,000 yards receiving, Owens once again raised his reception total (67), and exploded for 14 touchdown receptions.

  • 2000 - On December 17, Owens set an NFL record with 20 catches for 283 yards against the Chicago Bears, surpassing a 50-year-old mark held by Tom Fears.

  • 2000 - Rebounding from a down 1999 season, Owens set a career high with 97 receptions and 1,451 yards. He also scored 13 touchdowns, and earned a trip to Hawaii for his first Pro Bowl.

  • 2001 - Owens earned All Pro honors for the first time and was selected to play in the Pro Bowl for the second time after recording 93 receptions for 1,412 yards and 16 touchdowns.

  • 2002 - Establishing a career-high with 100 receptions, Owens racked up another 1,300 yards receiving and 13 touchdowns.

  • 2003 - His number were down somewhat from the previous year, but very solid at 80 receptions for 1,102 yards and nine touchdowns, and enough to earn him his fourth-straight Pro Bowl appearance.

  • 2004 - Breathing life into an anemic receiving corps, Owens helped spark the Eagles’ offense with 14 touchdown receptions and 1,200 yards receiving before his regular season ended due to injury with two games left to play.

  • 2005 - Owens made a miraculous return from a broken leg suffered earlier in the season to record nine catches for 122 yards in Super Bowl XXXIX.

  • 2005 - Owens recorded his 100th touchdown reception in a contest against the San Diego Chargers on October 23rd.
