The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11 thanks in large part to Travis Kelce. In the process, he broke a record that Rob Gronkowski had previously held for a tight end, making history.
All three of the Chiefs’ receiving touchdowns for the contest were scored by Kelce. He made six receptions for 115 yards with an average catch of 19.2 yards.
With that, he surpassed Gronk, who had 32 of them throughout the course of his career with the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He now has 33 games with at least 100 receiving yards.
For what it’s worth, Kelce has 100 or more receiving yards in four of his games this 2022. In doing so, he helped the Chiefs to 2-1 victories over the Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills, and Arizona Cardinals.
The Chiefs still have seven games left in this season, and Kelce currently has 855 yards and 11 touchdowns overall. It is reasonable to anticipate that, given the way he is playing, he will keep finding Patrick Mahomes and widen the gap between himself and Rob Gronkowski.
Naturally, Travis Kelce is unlikely to be concerned about each player’s record. He probably wouldn’t care how many catches or touchdowns he makes in a game as long as Kansas City is winning. Who wouldn’t want to see the 33-year-old establish himself as one of, if not the, greatest TEs in game history? We would love to see that happen!
