Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce are only in their fifth postseason together, but they’re already in elite company in their playoff accomplishments.

Mahomes has thrown 11 touchdown passes to Kelce in the postseason, which is the third-most in NFL history for any quarterback-receiver pair.

The only pairs who have more are Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, who connected for 12 touchdown passes in the postseason, and Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, who had 15.

Mahomes has 28 postseason touchdown passes in his career. Kelce has 12 postseason touchdown catches in his career, having also caught one from Alex Smith in the 2017 playoffs.

  1. Gronk just said yeaterday he does not care about this stuff. Only winning Superbowls matters. So I guess we can go with that.

  2. These kinds of stats lose so much meaning when you consider how the number of playoff games per season has exploded.

  3. the Chiefs only have 1 ring within their Paper Tiger Dynasty

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Because of Brady.

    FYI, Brady played 33 minutes in 2019 SB against Rams and never gave Rams offense good field positions. Had Jimmy Garoppolo played 33 minutes in SB against Chiefs instead of only 27 minutes, 49ers would have won the SB.

  4. There is only one extra playoff round now, compared to when Montana played. And if the team gets a bye, there are the same number of rounds as before. The record isn’t tainted.

  5. Fake dynasty created by the media. Along with the fake MVP whos head coach stat pads by shovel passing at the 1 yard line. More than 50% of Mahomes passing TDs were inside the 10.

    lol

    Because of BB the GM and Coach and getting Brady’s ego fixe after drating Garoppolo, working with him everyday, and setting up a 2dn dynasty.

    SF wins the SB vs KC if Shanahan isn’t a moron again with both RBs running at 6YPC clip into the 4th qtr.

    You’re not very good at this, Willy.

    The Pats had stretches between the SB wins too. The key word you missed is “so far”. 4 straight AFC Championship games while Mahomes and Kelce are breaking records.
    You had a good run, but Brady isn’t coming back and BB is creeping closer to retirement. The AFC East has gotten much better while your Pats are regressing. Enjoy!

    No, because of the Bucs defense bailing out Brady throwing 3 picks in the championship game then the Chiefs missing their starting 2 tackles and the Bucs defense holding Mahomes to 9 points.

    Any QB not only could have won that game… they would have.

    Did you read your post in “Bill Belichick sees “dramatic improvement” in Mac Jones on Jul 22nd, 2022?

    “When BB works with qbs daily, the results are good. It is just a fact.”

  10. No, because of the Bucs defense bailing out Brady throwing 3 picks in the championship game then the Chiefs missing their starting 2 tackles and the Bucs defense holding Mahomes to 9 points.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Can you tell the difference between “Brady needed defense” and “Brady needed Belichick’s defense”?

    The reason Brady “needed” defense was because #1, Belichick was so so so CHEAP on offense, #2, Belichick’s defense couldn’t shut down opponent like Todd Bowles defense did to Mahomes and Chiefs.

    The excuse making is borderline comical. Yes Brady threw 3 picks in the second half and was god awful. He also threw three TDs in the first half. The game is 60 mins for a reason.

    Brady bailed the defense out in the wild card game when Taylor Henicke carved them up. Goes both ways despite your feelings.

    The whole game was Bruce Arian’s system, Brady never played like that when leading big.

    My guess is that Bruce Arian wanted to prove that his system could still win. They were lucky on Scotty’s miller’s TD before half time, otherwise they might have lost.

  14. Mahomes to Kelce has mostly happened in the middle of the field for longer touchdowns. Brady and Gronk were mostly red zone touchdowns. Also Goodell Peyton Manning put up only 8 points against the Legion of Boom and likely would have lost to the Rams in 2018 since that defense was very similar in its ability to pass rush and press coverage. No not any quarterback would have won Super Bowl 53. Brady did not give them any good field position even despite throwing a pick. Oh and Ben Roethlisberger in Super Bowl 40 was worse than Manning in his last Super Bowl or Brady in 53.

    Taylor Heinicke and his 78 rating in that game didn’t carve up anybody.

    Tommy was bailed out by his defense that whole playoff run just like all of his rings. Has never won a single ring for his team. His teammates won them all for him while he soaks up all the undeserved credit and the Tommy fanclub arfs and claps.

    A real GOAT would not have a losingrecord without elite coaching. Fact
