Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had eight receptions and a TD against the BIlls.

We all know Travis Kelce helped the Kansas City Chiefs win their overtime thriller against the the Buffalo Bills on January 23 with his toe-tapping walk-off touchdown. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes said that the tight end’s football awareness also saved the game.

Rewind back to eight seconds on the clock in regulation. Mahomes had just hit Tyreek Hill for a 19-yard strike on first down, setting up a do-or-die moment from the Chiefs’ 44-yard line.

It was the stuff legends are made of, and Kansas City may never see another combination as clutch and legendary as Mahomes to Kelce. The conversion itself was unbelievable but the explanation from the QB only added to its greatness.
