Travis Kelce Will Find The End Zone Twice

This Kansas City offense is filled with talent. They have Helaire who has already displayed his excellent running ability. Their offensive line is one of the better ones in this league. They have speedsters on the outside, such as Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman. And of course, they have arguably the best TE in football, Travis Kelce.

Ever since Mahomes took over as the starting quarterback for the Chiefs, he had tremendous chemistry with Kelce. Kelce is his security blanket as he often finds him on 3rd and short when they need a first down. He is a very valuable red zone target with his size and catching ability. Most importantly, he is physical up front and contributes to run blocking. There is no denying that he is hard to contain.

The reason Kelce is hard to take out of the game is because the defense has to worry about other assignments. Kelce is a short yardage threat. The safeties are concerned about getting beat over the top by Tyreek Hill and so, Kelce can work his magic with the underneath routes. Kelce currently leads all Chiefs wideouts in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns with 37 receptions, 470 yards and 5 touchdowns.

Travis Kelce has been dominant against the Broncos since Mahomes took over as the starter. Last year, in their second head-to-head matchup, Kelce posted 11 catches for over 140 yards. In both of their 2018 matchups, Kelce found his way into the end zone. On Sunday, he will find the end zone twice.
