Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce indeed carved his way into the NFL’s record books during the team’s game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon.
Kelce became the first tight end in NFL history with two 100-catch seasons, and he broke George Kittle’s NFL single-season record for most receiving yards by a tight end.
Through Week 16, Kelce presently has precisely 1,400 yards getting. Kittle set the record two years prior with 1,377.
Kelce got done with seven receptions for 98 yards and one touchdown – his eleventh of the season – for the Chiefs, as they got away with a 17-14 home triumph over the Falcons.
The Chiefs secured the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs with the success. Falcons’ Pro Bowl kicker Younghoe Koo missed a game-tying, 39-yard field goal with nine seconds left in the final quarter, which would have tied the game.
Kansas City, winners of 10 in a row, have likewise won seven straight matches by six points or less. The Chiefs’ 28-game streak of scoring at least 20 points arrived at end. It was just the second time in 58 games since 2017 that the Chiefs scored 20 or less points.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 278 and two touchdowns in the success. He associated with wide receiver Demarcus Robinson for a 25-yard touchdown with under two minutes to go in the game to put the Chiefs ahead for good.
