The Kansas City Chiefs are slated to be the No.1 team heading into 2021. And Travis Kelce had some pretty scary news for the rest of the league.
Travis Kelce added another All-Pro tag to his name after breaking career bests in an already historic career. Kelce ripped through the entire NFL, as he added a 3rd All-Pro tag to his resume. The 6-time Pro-Bowler had a career year, as he caught 105 passes for 1,416 yards despite missing the last game of the season.

Ever Since Mahome stook over the starting gig, The Kansas City Chiefs’ offense has been unstoppable. The juggernaut of an offense went on scoring 28.2 points per game in 2019 before posting 39 per game in the postseason that year, which led to them winning the Super Bowl. They then reached the Super Bowl again during the 2020 campaign after scoring 29.6 points per game in the regular season and not only seeing someone like Mahomes play well, but Kelce also arguably had the best year of his career.
The Mahomes, Hill, Kelce trio has been instrumental in leading the team to those heights. But the team also has a couple of offensive geniuses in HC Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Eric Bienemy.
Travis Kelce thinks Andy Reid’s offense will be even better in 2021.
Travis Kelce recently appeared on The Rich Eisen Show, and Eisen asked him how the Chiefs can even improve at this point since they have already become one of the most dominant offensive units football has ever seen.
“I think coach Reid does an unbelievable job, every single year — year-in, year-out — of creating a playbook that we can grow in,” Kelce said on the Aug. 26 episode. “So, it’s not the same stuff that we’ve been throwing out there so we can get schemed up, and it makes our job harder, he’s putting in new stuff; he’s putting in things that are gonna make our jobs that much easier out there on the field and put us in a position to have success. And when we rep all of these plays in practice, we find ways to have success versus various coverages, and I think that’s where I really grow every single year.”
OK, but what about some of these new plays?
“We got some wacky stuff in the playbook now,” he said. “We got some gadget stuff that you wouldn’t even think would be on a football field. But it’s fun, man. … I feel like with Mahomes, it (the playbook) expanded even more. So, three, four years ago, whenever Pat got here, everything started to expand. And even Alex [Smith’s] last year it started to expand downfield with the players that we had, with Tyreek Hill and all of the speed we had.”
