Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce registered seven catches in the first half of Sunday’s AFC championship game against the Baltimore Ravens to pass Jerry Rice for the most postseason receptions in NFL history.
Kelce broke the record in the second quarter on an 8-yard pass from quarterback Patrick Mahomes. It was the Chiefs star’s 152nd career catch in the playoffs. Rice, a three-time Super Bowl champion with the San Francisco 49ers, recorded 151 postseason catches in his 20-season NFL career.
It helps that Kelce has appeared in the playoffs every year since the 2015 season.

Kelce also is chasing another of Rice’s postseason records. He scored his 19th playoff touchdown Sunday to cap the Chiefs’ first drive. Rice holds the NFL record for career postseason touchdowns with 22.
It’s uncertain whether the 34-year-old Kelce will continue adding to his playoff statistics after this season. Regardless, he already ranks among the greatest tight ends in NFL history.
