Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce passed legendary receiver Jerry Rice to become the NFL’s all-time leader in playoff catches.

Kelce entered the game six receptions behind Rice’s record of 151, and the Chiefs star eclipsed the Hall of Famer’s mark in the second quarter of Sunday’s 17-10 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

He finished the AFC title game with 11 catches for 116 yards and one touchdown.


The 34-year-old’s career postseason totals in receiving yards (1,810) and receiving touchdowns (19) are second only to Rice, who had 2,245 yards and 22 scores.

Kelce, who has spent his entire career with the Chiefs, played his 21st playoff game Sunday. Most of his appearances have come since Patrick Mahomes took over as starting quarterback in 2018.

The two-time Super Bowl champion boasts an NFL-record seven straight 1,000-yard seasons by a tight end and fell just 16 yards short of his eighth after the Chiefs opted to rest him in Week 18.

Among all tight ends in NFL history, Kelce sits fourth in career catches (907) and receiving yards (11,328) and tied for fifth in receiving touchdowns (74). His average of 71.2 yards per game is also the most ever at his position.

Kelce has been named a first-team All-Pro four times, a second-team All-Pro three times, and a Pro Bowler nine times. He’s also a member of the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team.
