Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had one of the best games of his career last Thursday to help lead his team to a victory over the Chargers.

Now he’s been honored for the performance.

Kelce set a new career-high with 191 receiving yards on 10 receptions with two touchdowns in the 34-28 overtime victory and has been named AFC offensive player of the week.

The tight end caught the game-tying touchdown with just 1:16 left in the fourth quarter. Then he caught a short pass in overtime and turned it into the game-winning, 34-yard TD.

But after that strong performance, there’s a chance Kelce will miss Kansas City’s game against Pittsburgh on Sunday. Kelce landed on the COVID-19 list earlier this week after testing positive for the virus.

Kelce has 83 catches for 1,066 yards with seven touchdowns in 2021. If he’s able to clear the updated COVID-19 protocols for Sunday’s game, it would be a significant boost to Kansas City’s chances to run its winning streak to eight games.
