Despite a scary-looking injury from Travis Kelce in the second quarter, he came out in the second half with his ankle taped heavily. Before Kelce went down he caught five passes on six targets for 22 yards. Kelce would end up finishing the day with 10 catches for 67 yards and a touchdown.
I know Travis got a halftime text from Taylor that's giving him life in this 2nd half.— Stephen Serda (@StephenSerda) October 8, 2023
We also witnessed a big game for two young wide receivers: Rashee Rice and Justyn Ross.
In Week 1 against the Detroit Lions, Ross caught one pass for six yards. On Sunday, he caught two passes for 28 yards. One of Ross’s catches came on a second-and-17, as Ross converted with a spectacular catch between a few defenders.

I know Rice has already scored his first career touchdown – but the one Rice scored coming out of the half meant the most. With Kelce questionable to return, Patrick Mahomes continued to spread the ball around. Rice caught Mahomes' first touchdown pass of the game — the first touchdown Kansas City had scored since the opening drive.
