45 Seconds: Travis Kelce scores in creative chaos

45 Seconds: Travis Kelce scores in creative chaos

“A bad ball fake?” It’s 9 p.m. in a classroom on a late August night. It’s late into my first training camp of college. I know nothing. My head is spinning. I’m trying to keep up with all the information being thrown at me in our installation meetings. That night, we’re installing our zone pass package. It’s a play action design that we ran with success. If it’s Zone Pass Left the quarterback opens to the left from under center, gives an intentionally bad ball fake to the running back (who also gives a very Nic Cage performance), two steps of a naked boot to the right and...

Travis Kelce defends Alex Smith: I’m sick of hearing he’s the reason we aren’t winning

Travis Kelce defends Alex Smith: I’m sick of hearing he’s the reason we aren’t winning

Travis Kelce is willing to speak his mind as you all know. The KC Chiefs tight end spoke with reporters after the Chiefs sixth loss of the season in New York and went to bat for Alex Smith. Before we get to those comments, go back to the Chiefs-Jets game (as painful as it is). The TV broadcast showed Kelce on a replay throwing his hands in the air after he was open on a route and didn’t get the ball from Alex. The cameras then showed Kelce saying something to Alex on the sideline. I wondered what Kelce was saying but I am guessing he wasn’t screaming profanities at him because Alex is...

Chiefs fans react to the suddenly-good-again offense in Jets game

KC Chiefs QB Alex Smith has been under fire in Kansas City all week long with many Chiefs fans calling for backup QB Patrick Mahomes. Alex’s response? 4/4 for 75 yards and this 22-yard touchdown pass to Travis Kelce on the opening drive against the New York Jets.

The offense looked excellent on their opening drive in New York with...

Inside the Chiefs huddle before the Jets

ESPN’s Josina Anderson was standing right behind CB Darrelle Revis as someone broke them down in the huddle. I think that was Travis Kelce ... I’ll edit this when a commenter points out who it was. (Warning: I heard some F bombs) I'm all up in the #Chiefs huddle with Big Revis in front of me & media photogs everywhere!! pic.twitter.com/hwPEyhAkGa— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) December 3, 2017

Applying what Buffalo’s defense did against the Chiefs to the Patriots

Applying what Buffalo’s defense did against the Chiefs to the Patriots

The Bills defense showed some new wrinkles on Sunday. We break them down and discuss how they will be used against New England. After three straight games of defensive ineptitude, Leslie Frazier and his defense turned things around and produced an excellent performance in Kansas City on Sunday. The run defense was spectacular holding Kareem Hunt under 20 yards. The pass defense was just as good holding Alex Smith under 200 yards passing and then putting the clamps on Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce to a combined 10 catches for only 80 yards. I want to look at three things the Bills did on...

Travis Kelce is one of the most productive slot receivers in the NFL

Travis Kelce is one of the most productive slot receivers in the NFL

I said the other day that it was not right to call out Travis Kelce’s effort because he is one of the players that I know cares and he has been one of the few players that has been consistently productive for the Chiefs this season. That includes not only as a tight end but also as a receiver coming out of the slot. ESPN’s NFL Matchup show shows the players with the most yards lined up in the slot this season. Most Productive SLOT RECEIVERS (along with @tkelce) this season!#BeRedSeeRed #OnePride #ChiefsKingdom #Seahawks #FlyEaglesFly #Skol #Chargers #GiantsPride #GoPats #HereWeGo...

Calling Travis Kelce out is a stretch

Calling Travis Kelce out is a stretch

A couple weeks ago NBC’s Rodney Harrison questioned the passion of the Kansas City Chiefs. I mostly agreed with him because the Chiefs were losing and something just seemed off with the team. They didn’t look like the same team that started the season 5-0 and now you’re seeing them lose to a one-win team like the Giants. I wondered about the passion too. One player whose passion I didn’t worry about was TE Travis Kelce. He is an animated player and, to me, it’s obvious he cares a great deal about the team. As Alex Smith threw the game ending interception at the end of Sunday’s...

Chiefs’ Andy Reid roundup: What’s missing at WR, Reggie Ragland a rookie, Parker Ehinger

Chiefs’ Andy Reid roundup: What’s missing at WR, Reggie Ragland a rookie, Parker Ehinger

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid held his weekly conference call early Monday afternoon after the Chiefs’ 12-9 loss to the New York Giants. We have already covered: What happened to the 5-0 Chiefs? Reid says he should have left the Travis Kelce trick pass on the play sheet Other items of note Reid thought linebacker Reggie Ragland, who had a season-high 47 snaps on defense, played well. “I think he did a nice job,” Reid said. “There are a couple plays he’d like to have back but for the most part, he did a nice job. He’s getting better every week. I think we’re seeing...

Andy Reid says he should have left the Travis Kelce pass tucked away

With his Kansas City Chiefs at their own 40-yard line tied 6-6 with the New York Giants in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game, head coach Andy Reid called a second-down Travis Kelce pass. The play resulted in an interception. Travis Kelce interception. He throws a good-looking ball at least. pic.twitter.com/Qs7pyqQ7PM— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) November 19, 2017 Reid said Tyreek Hill was the primary receiver on the play, but when the Giants did a good job covering him, Kelce chose to launch it to Demarcus Robinson on the right side of the field. Reid admitted Monday he wish he...

Chiefs’ Travis Kelce says they’re not pointing fingers but “guys have to get called out”

The Kansas City Chiefs were left trying to figure out what happened after Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants. This was the Chiefs worst loss of the season. Yes, they are still in first place and they’re still the favorite to win the AFC West. But if you’re a Chiefs fan, this feels like rock bottom. And apparently it does for players, too. “We’re going to have to go look at the film and man up,” Chiefs TE Travis Kelce said after the game (via quotes from the Giants). “Nobody is pointing fingers, but guys have to get called out and get told, you know what I mean? They have to...

Giants stun Chiefs, 12-9: the bad and the ugly

Giants stun Chiefs, 12-9: the bad and the ugly

The New York Giants earned their second victory of the year against the Kansas City Chiefs, 12-9, Sunday. Usually, this article is called “the good, the bad and the ugly,” but I just went with “the bad and the ugly” for this one. BAD: The Travis Kelce shovel pass finally meets its match Using Travis Kelce with the shovel pass has made for some intriguing offensive looks this year for the Chiefs. The shovel helped Kansas City become the only team to beat who is widely regarded right now as the league’s best--the Philadelphia Eagles. It has been plays like the shovel that have made...

Chiefs vs. Giants final score: Kansas City goes to embarrassing new low with 12-9 loss

Chiefs vs. Giants final score: Kansas City goes to embarrassing new low with 12-9 loss

The Kansas City Chiefs lost to the New York Giants, 12-9. This drops the Chiefs to 6-4 on the season. The Giants were 1-8 before this game so this is about as bad as it gets for the Chiefs this season. The Giants are the worst team they’ll play and they couldn’t beat them. This is not good. Final stats are here. The one good thing Travis Kelce had a good day? He had 109 of Alex’s 230 yards passing. That’s all I can come up with. (Kelce also threw a pick so let’s ignore that) That’s the one positive in this game. The rest sucked. This play helped us get to overtime Alex Smith was...

Chiefs’ shovel pass doesn’t work this time

Chiefs’ shovel pass doesn’t work this time

The Kansas City Chiefs ran a shovel pass to Travis Kelce so often earlier this year that it became a thing. We all joked about it and it was fun because the shovel pass worked. They would often fake the sweep to Tyreek Hill and have Kelce coming along behind him and slyly throw the shovel pass to Kelce up the middle of the field. Suddenly it’s not working. The Chiefs tried their unstoppable play against the Giants and it went for a fat guy interception. Alex Smith could not have put Travis Kelce in a worse situation #KCvsNYG pic.twitter.com/cXYlvjvLPC— What the Sports...

Pro Bowl voting is open, these Chiefs will have a shot

Pro Bowl voting is open, these Chiefs will have a shot

You can now vote the Kansas City Chiefs into the Pro Bowl. The NFL announced that Pro Bowl voting is now open and you can do so at this link. The Chiefs should have a number of Pro Bowl candidates this year. QB Alex Smith is in talks for league MVP, although those have waned in recent weeks, so it seems likely he will make a Pro Bowl if he keeps this up and especially if the Chiefs keep winning. RB Kareem Hunt has really good numbers this year and is already the front runner for rookie of the year. Pro Bowl may not be far behind. TE Travis Kelce seems like a lock for a Pro Bowl and WR...

Chiefs have reason to believe Travis Kelce will have a big day vs. Giants

Chiefs have reason to believe Travis Kelce will have a big day vs. Giants

This should be a good week for KC Chiefs TE Travis Kelce against the New York Giants. This will be a fun fantasy stat thrown around this week but Chiefs fans should have every reason to believe Kelce will be scoring a touchdown this weekend. That’s because of this stat from Big Blue View’s by the numbers post: 10: That is how many consecutive games in which the Giants have allowed a touchdown pass to an opposing tight end. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, that is the longest such streak in NFL history. Kelce is on his own hot streak. In the last two weeks, he has 14 catches on 19 targets...
