Travis Kelce: Scores winning TD in OT

Kelce caught eight of nine targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-36 overtime win over Buffalo.

Analysis: Kelce saved his biggest contributions for last in this one. The tight end's 25-yard catch-and-run in the final seconds of the fourth quarter set up Harrison Butker's fame-tying 49-yard field goal as time expired. The Chiefs got the ball first in overtime, and Kelce ended it eight plays later with an eight-yard touchdown catch. He's a key cog in a brilliant Kansas City offense that should maintain its productive ways in the AFC Championship Game against the Bengals.
