Mahomes had to avoid the Bengals rushing and spinning multiple times to somehow find Kelce in the end zone.

The touchdown was Kelce’s 12th tally in the playoffs, tying Pittsburgh Steelers great John Stallworth for the third most touchdowns in playoff history. San Francisco 49ers legend Jerry Rice leads the way with 22 scores and future Hall of Fame tight end Rob Gronkowski has 15 touchdowns.
