Who Can Stop Travis Kelce?

The Houston Texans will have a major problem against the Kansas City Chiefs, and that is tight end Travis Kelce.  Kelce smoked the Texans in 2015 for two of his biggest games of the season.  In fact, the Chiefs two contests against Houston were the only two times in 2015 that Travis Kelce eclipsed 100 yards receiving.

The Texans will have to find a way to stop Travis Kelce this week, and they will have to do it without top ILB Brian Cushing.  Though Cushing is not known for his pass coverage, his absence will still make this a more difficult task.  The Chiefs game plan should absolutely involve hitting Kelce early and often over the middle of the field.

To be honest, I don’t see a good match up for the Texans on this one.  Travis Kelce has got to be central to the Chiefs offensive plans this week.  He was relatively quiet in Week 1, and that has to change.  If Travis Kelce has a big game this week, the Chiefs have a very good chance of getting the win.
