“We have to get to Patrick Mahomes and man, that’s a tough task,” Rice told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. “And Travis Kelce, I would 100% dub him and also Taylor Swift. I would 100% dub her. We don’t want Travis to go for it because every time Travis goes the camera goes up in the box with Taylor . Fast.

Kelce has stepped up his game in recent weeks. He has 23 catches for 262 yards and three touchdowns. He scored two touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills and one against the Baltimore Ravens.
