Fans stunned as Chiefs TE shatters playoff record

Whenever Travis Kelce retires, he will one day strut into the Hall of Fame. Even before Sunday’s heated AFC title game against the Baltimore Ravens, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end was clearly one of the greatest playmakers in NFL history. And in the playoffs, Kelce really turns it up a notch.

So much so that he surpassed one of the finest receivers ever to wear shoulder pads and a helmet.

With nine first-half catches (for 96 yards and a touchdown), Kelce eclipsed San Francisco 49ers legend Jerry Rice for the most playoff receptions in NFL history. The list is now Kelce at 154 (and counting) in first and the most productive receiver of all time in second.

It’s true, but it’s also bonkers to think about.

Kelce is getting up there in years at the age of 34. But who’s to say he can’t keep this magic going with Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City? I have a feeling he’s about to really separate himself from Rice and cement himself as a beyond-iconic playoff performer.

Next up on the record list? Rice’s playoff record of touchdowns (22) and Kelce (19). We might even see it happen this postseason.

NFL fans were amazed by Kelce surpassing Rice for the most playoff catches ever
