Kansas City Chiefs superstar tight end Travis Kelce had a massive game on Sunday night to help lead his team to a Super Bowl berth, and he set a major NFL record this week, passing a Hall of Fame receiver.

As Adam Schefter of ESPN points out, during the first half of Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, Travis Kelce passed Jerry Rice to take the lead for the most postseason catches in playoff history.

“Chiefs’ TE Travis Kelce now has passed all-time great Jerry Rice for the most postseason catches in NFL history,” Schefter said in a post on X, the social media website that was formerly known as Twitter.

Adding to this impressive stat, Kelce accomplished this feat in eight fewer games than Rice.

Obviously, this is pretty insane news that Kelce has passed one of the all-time greats in the history of the NFL at such a massive and important stat, and the NFL world had a lot to say about it on social media as a result.

Kelce had already established himself as one of the top players in the history of the game well before achieving this record, but this is just another point to add to the Chiefs’ star’s impressive resume.
