With a playoff berth secured and the game against the Los Angeles Chargers an inconsequential one, QB Patrick Mahomes was rested. But Kelce was just 16 yards short of getting eight consecutive seasons with 1000+ receiving yards. However, he could not reach the milestone, and let the fans know the reason behind it!

No other TE in the history of the NFL has gone more than 2 seasons with 1000+ receiving yards. Kelce showed the world his prowess by getting the accomplishment for 7 back-to-back seasons. But could not cement his legacy for the 8th one in a row.

And he revealed his motives for staying off the Chargers’ turf. “I was all for that to gear up for the playoffs”, said Kelce. It shows that the Chiefs and Kelce are paying due respect to their feared opponents in the playoffs.

The Miami Dolphins will be visiting the Arrowhead this Saturday for the Wild Card game against the Kansas City Chiefs. A blockbuster matchup, it will also feature one of Kelce’s former teammates. Tyreek Hill left the Chiefs after the Super Bowl win, last year.
