Offensive spotlight: On a day when he broke Jerry Rice's postseason receptions record, Travis Kelce put together an outstanding performance, hauling in all 11 of his targets for 116 yards, six first downs and a touchdown. Kelce's back shoulder touchdown grab was incredibly impressive, especially since it came against Kyle Hamilton — PFF's second-highest-graded safety in coverage (90.2) during the regular season.

Linebacker Fred Warner made four stops in the run game and didn't miss any of his five tackle attempts.
