San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle broke Kelce’s record.

The records kept on falling for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

After Tyreek Hill set the Chiefs’ single-season receiving record and Patrick Mahomes became just the third player in NFL history to score 50 touchdowns, Travis Kelce set the single-season yards record among tight ends.

Kelce eclipsed Rob Gronkowski’s number in 2011 with a 25-yard catch in the fourth quarter.

Kelce also set the Chiefs’ franchise record for most receptions in a single season. The Chiefs are well on their way to clinching the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
