FANTASTIC: TRAVIS KELCE
Usually I stick to just the good, the bad, and the ugly (hence the title), but I’ve decided to add a fantastic option this week. That honor goes to Travis Kelce, who had a career game against the Broncos.
It’s safe to say that this game officially made [Kelce] a household name, if he wasn’t one already.
Kelce has had an incredible year (so much for that dating show of his being a distraction) and has now gone over 1,000 yards receiving with this game.
Alex Smith seemed comfortable throwing to Kelce early and often with this game, connecting with him on two of the first seven plays for a total of 14 yards.
After Smith threw an interception and the Broncos were able to punch the football in, Tyreek Hill was tackled at the Chiefs’ 16-yard line. The momentum was swinging in favor of Denver and the Chiefs needed to do something to get the Arrowhead crowd back into the game.
Well, after a short run by Spencer Ware, Smith connected with Kelce on a screen pass and the big guy took it 80 yards to the house! It was incredible.
Overall, Kelce had 11 catches for 160 yards and a touchdown. It’s safe to say that this game officially made him a household name, if he wasn’t one already. John Dorsey was brilliant in extending him this past offseason.
