Travis Kelce exhibited remarkable resilience while battling a foot injury, ultimately making a big impact in the Kansas City Chiefs’ hard-fought road victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Travis’ performance included 10 catches for 67 yards and a 4-yard touchdown catch from Patrick Mahomes with just 2 minutes and 45 seconds left in the third quarter, extending the Chiefs’ lead to 27-20.
Travis suffered a tragic injury in the second quarter when he slipped on the turf at US Bank Stadium and was forced to sit out the remainder of that quarter. He showed great determination by returning to the field after half-time with his injured foot bandaged.

His commitment to the game paid off as he made an immense contribution to his team when it was needed most. In the final moments of the game, Travis was seen playing on the defensive end.

Patrick Mahomes had an impressive outing, completing 31 of his 41 pass attempts for 281 yards and delivering two touchdown passes. Receiver Rashee Rice contributed four receptions for 33 yards, including one for a touchdown, while Justin Watson made two critical receptions for a total of 56 yards.
The Vikings managed to keep the game close in the early stages, with the score tied 13-13. However, they allowed the Chiefs to take the lead with two touchdowns in the third quarter.
Kirk Cousins, on the other hand, completed 29 of his 47 pass attempts for 284 yards, connecting with two touchdown passes. Jordan Addison played a key role with six receptions for 64 yards, and Alexander Mattison contributed with a touchdown reception, finishing the game with two receptions for 20 yards.
