2. Travis Kelce

We spent all week worried if Kelce would play and if he did, how effective he'd be. Those concerns quickly proved unfounded.

With Taylor Swift in the house, Kelce was heavily involved from the jump, catching Patrick Mahomes' first two passes and even lateraling one on a designed trick play. It was easily Kelce's best statistical game of the season as he caught nine passes (on nine targets) for 124 yards, frequently serving as a safety valve when Mahomes was in trouble.

Kelce eclipsed 100 receiving yards in the first half for the second time in his career - the first also came against Denver. It was his sixth career 100-yard receiving game vs. the Broncos, tying him for the most all-time against the franchise.

After sloppy play in the red zone doomed two of the Chiefs' first three drives, it was Kelce who quickly caught two passes on the fourth drive to steady the offense to help set up a touchdown.

His value cannot be overstated for this team. As young receivers like Rashee Rice (who was fantastic) and Skyy Moore develop, Kelce's reliability becomes even more critical for a Kansas City team gunning for another No. 1 seed in the AFC.

Here's hoping he takes this extended break to rest up because his health is paramount to the Chiefs' ultimate goal.

Last but certainly not least, how about that kicker?
