The Kansas City Chiefs walked away with another Sunday Night Football win in Week 11, which extended Patrick Mahomes' perfect record in road divisional games to 14-0 in his career. However, that wasn't the only career milestone reached on Sunday Night.

Travis Kelce New NFL Record

Tight end Travis Kelce had another massive game, hauling in 6 catches for 115 yards and 3 touchdowns. With his performance, Kelce became the career leader in games with at least 100 or more yards, Sunday night marking the 33rd time he has done it. He passed another future Hall of Fame tight end in the process, Rob Gronkowski.

Gronkowski seems like he might be retired for good at the present moment, so this could be Kelce's record alone to build on for a while. He accomplished the feat three times last season, so if he does muster yet another return from retirement, he might be able to notch a couple more.

Kelce will get his first opportunity to build upon his new record in Week 12 when the Chiefs take on the Los Angeles Rams at Arrowhead Stadium, where they are 14-point home favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
