According to yahoo.sports.com, “Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce owns yet another piece of NFL history after his performance on “Sunday Night Football” against the Broncos. Kelce has become the only tight end in the history of the NFL to record five consecutive seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards. Former Chiefs legend Tony Gonzalez only had four 1,000 yard receiving seasons in his entire career. He just needs four more catches to reach his fifth season of 80 or more catches.”

 

The Chiefs are going to be doing a lot of celebrating with their practices because they have made it to the playoffs. Next week they are facing off with the (8-4) Miami Dolphins which should be a decent low-scoring game because the Dolphins have star quarterback Tua Tangovalia. The Broncos must practice this week because they are going to be facing off with the (4-8) Carolina Panthers. This game should turn out to be a win for the Broncos because the Panthers do not have star running back Christian McCaffrey.
