Dwayne Bowe will likely be moving on up in the Kansas City Chiefs record books this week. Bowe currently has 367 career receptions with the Chiefs and with two more receptions he will tie Kimble Anders for 6th place on the franchise's all-time receptions list. (Check out Kimble's career stats -- that's a lot of receptions and not many yards.)

Barring injury or a really, really bad season, Bowe should end the 2012 as the second in all-time receptions for the Chiefs and as high as sixth in receiving yards.

Receptions:

1. 916 Tony Gonzalez 1997-08
2. 416 Henry Marshall 1976-87
3. 410 Otis Taylor 1965-75
4. 391 Chris Burford 1960-67
5. 377 Stephone Paige 1983-91
6. 369 Kimble Anders 1991-00
7. 367 Dwayne Bowe 2007-12

Bowe needs 49 more receptions to land in second place all-time. That'd be at least 60 catches on the season, including what the 11 he already has this season. Outside of that 2009 season where he played in only 11 games, 60 receptions would be a career low for him so barring anything unforeseen he should end the season as the Chiefs second all-time receptions leader.

This season he will also likely pass Eddie Kennison and then Chris Burford to move into sixth all-time on the franchise receiving yards list.

Receiving yards:

1. 10,940 Tony Gonzalez 1997-08
2. 7,306 Otis Taylor 1965-75
3. 6,545 Henry Marshall 1976-87
4. 6,360 Carlos Carson 1980-89
5. 6,341 Stephone Paige 1983-91
6. 5,505 Chris Burford 1960-67
7. 5,230 Eddie Kennison 2001-07
8. 5,082 Dwayne Bowe 2007-12
9. 3,685 Derrick Alexander 1998-01
10. 3,101 Fred Arbanas 1962-70

Bowe will never make a run at Tony Gonzalez, who sits at No. 2 all-time in NFL history in receptions and No. 10 in NFL history in receiving yards.

In other record news, Javier Arenas needs two punt return yards to move past Dale Carter for fourth all-time in Chiefs punt return yards.
