Travis Kelce was all smiles in Chiefs practice on Saturday as his team gears up for a crucial NFL game against Las Vegas Raiders on Christmas Day.
The tight end was snapped smiling away in a picture shared by the team on X as they bid to maintain their return to winning ways after beating the Patriots last weekend.
Kelce’s girlfriend Taylor Swift is expected to be there on Christmas Day to cheer Kelce on at Arrowhead Stadium, with the couple believed to be spending the holidays at his $6million mansion in Kansas City.
And it could really be a day to remember for the Chiefs hero as he closes in on another record for the season.
The 34-year-old is just 76 yards short of earning yet another 1,000 yard season.
And if he pulls it off, he’ll extend his record of having the most 1000+ yard seasons among tight ends with eight – doubling his advantage over the next-closest players.
That would also move him to a tie for eighth all-time among all pass catchers in NFL history.
Kelce already passed 11,000 yards receiving in a career earlier this season – sitting at 11,268 total which puts him 38th all time and fourth among active players.
All this comes despite Kelce missing the first game of the season due to an injury.
If Kelce falls short on Monday, his next chance will also be at Arrowhead on New Year’s Eve when the Chiefs host the Bengals.
The Chiefs then round out the regular season on the road to the Chargers.
Speaking on the bonus episode of his New Heights podcast with brother Jason, released Friday, Kelce said he relishes having a game on Christmas Day.
‘I absolutely love it man. It’s magical. That’s one thing Christmas does – it brings people together and what better way to enjoy Christmas day than some football at Arrowhead baby?’ the tight end said.
