Travis Kelce reaches 1,000 receiving yards for the fifth consecutive season

Kelce extended his own NFL record for consecutive 1,000 yard seasons by a tight end — with four games still to play.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce achieved an unbelievable milestone in Sunday night’s game against the Denver Broncos.

Kelce reached 1,000 yards on a 19-yard catch in the second quarter, which put him at 1,016 receiving yards for the season. It is the fifth-consecutive season that he has surpassed that total, which is an extension of his own NFL record for tight ends.

Current Seattle Seahawks tight end Greg Olsen is the only tight end besides Kelce to ever reach the feat of three consecutive seasons with 1,000 yards. Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski was only ever able to put together two consecutive seasons.
