KANSAS CITY, Mo — When you talk about this Chiefs team, you talk about all the offensive weapons and one of the biggest weapons the team has had comes from the play of tight end Travis Kelce.

Kelce has caught a pass in 79 straight games and continues to be one of the leagues top tight ends.

Even with that, he gets an opportunity to go head to head with New England Patriots tight end and future hall of famer Rob Gronkowski this weekend.

For Kelce, going up against some of the games elite brings out his competitive nature.

"I cherish every game I get to go up against the elite tight ends," Kelce said. "Last year against (Zach) Ertz in the second game of the year, every chance I've had to go up against Gronk and even when we played in Dallas last year against Jason Witten, the list goes on but I think it's one of those games I will cherish and I will remember forever."

Now Kelce and company have an opportunity to do something the Chiefs have never done here at Arrowhead: hand over the Lamar Hunt trophy to Clark Hunt. It's the handoff everyone in Chiefs Kingdom is looking forward to.
