Travis Kelce just continues to showcase elite production at the tight end position.
Travis Kelce is already bound for Canton, Ohio one day. At this point, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end is just strengthening his case for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
With a 19-yard catch from Patrick Mahomes in the second quarter, Kelce crossed the 1,000 receiving yard mark for the 2020 season, the fifth consecutive season in which he has eclipsed that very mark. In case you were wondering, at this point, Kelce is just extending his own records.
In a league where it’s still a rarity for any tight end to move past the 1,000 yard mark in a single season, Kelce has been turning such figures into expectations for a half decade now in Kansas City. He came into the Chiefs game against the Denver Broncos on pace for his best year yet in terms of receiving production and he’s already moving the chains early and often on Sunday night. With a few weeks to go, Kelce is certainly bound for another round of eye-popping totals at season’s end.
With the record of a fifth straight 1,000 yard season will also come the inevitable invitations to another Pro Bowl and a nod from the Associated Press as a first-team All-Pro. For Kelce it’s just all part and parcel of yet another impressive season enjoyed in Andy Reid’s offense, a staple of the Chiefs since he was first drafted back in 2013.
Coming into the game, Kelce has 581 catches in his career for 7,443 receiving yards and 44 touchdowns.
