Mahomes proud of his teammate
Patrick Mahomes and others in the league recognize and appreciate the remarkable connection between Kelce and the Chiefs‘ offense, akin to the legendary partnership between Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.
“He loves the challenge,” Mahomes said.
“All week, and rightfully so, we heard about how great their defense was, and they were, I mean, they shut us out in the second half.
“But for Travis, that’s like, ‘All right, what can I do against this great defense?’ He has that mindset, and he led us like that.
“Every single practice, every single walk-through, he was focused in, he was locked in bringing energy, and it makes my job a lot easier when you have a guy that’s in that room, that tight end room, that receiving room, and he can lead those young guys and show ’em how we go and lead us to an AFC Championship.”
