During the wild-card game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Travis Kelce did something unique. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end became the first tight end to throw a touchdown in a while. Previously, we saw this being done by the Philadelphia Eagles TE Trey Burton. Burton did the unthinkable during the Super Bowl LII game. 

 

Travis Kelce threw his first touchdown in his NFL career. Kelce was the quarterback for his high school football team. He also played some games as a QB in college. But ultimately, Travis decided he was a good fit in the TE position.

During the first minute of the fourth quarter, Kansas was on the attack. On a play near the end zone, Patrick Mahomes handed Travis Kelce the ball. Kelce threw a two-yard pass to Byron Pringle for the touchdown. This moment made his momma proud.

Travis greeted his mother, “What’s up, mom? Glad you made it.” Donna had just traveled 1200 miles after watching her other son, Jason Kelce’s not-so-great playoff game. Donna asked Travis about the TD pass he threw. “To finally throw a touchdown like I used to tell my mom when I was like five years old that I was going to eventually throw a touchdown in the National Football League, I finally got it done,” he adds, “It only took me nine years. That’s a good question though, Mom.”
