Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has become the youngest player in NFL history to reach 800 receptions.

Fitzgerald went into Sunday's game against Atlanta needing four catches to reach 800. He had a 10-yard touchdown to start the second quarter and hauled down a 17-yard pass on the final play of the third quarter to reach the mark.

Fitzgerald reached 800 catches in 30 years, 57 days, breaking the mark set by Jason Witten, who was 30 years, 238 days when he hit the milestone.

Fitzgerald is in his 10th NFL season, all with Arizona.
