The Kansas City Chiefs kicked off against Houston at Reliant Stadium for the NFL’s opening day and the Chiefs are already making a statement that doesn’t include defensive gloating.
Hauling in his first two receptions of the season, tight end Travis Kelce (drafted in 2013 after a collegiate career at Cincinatti) is making a strong campaign for himself – and albeit fantasy owners – that he’s a reliable target for someone like Alex Smith.
Kelce’s second touchdown of the game proved no contest as the Texans cornerback responsible for picking up the tight end slacked off, allowing Kelce to casually walk into the end zone.
In the most recent play involving Kelce, a defender crashed into his chest, rendering Kelce on his back grabbing his mid-section, but he did return to the field.
Currently (Q2 11:17), Kelce has three receptions for 70 yards and 2 TDs.
