Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce set an NFL record for most career postseason receptions during Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the host Baltimore Ravens.

Kelce's seventh reception of the game was his 152nd postseason catch, surpassing the mark held by legendary Jerry Rice. The record-breaking catch came midway through the second quarter.

The defending-champion Chiefs pulled off a 17-10 victory over the Ravens behind Kelce's 11 receptions for 116 yards and a touchdown. He will enter the Super Bowl on Feb. 11 at Las Vegas with 156 career postseason receptions.

Kelce, 34, played in his 21st postseason game on Sunday. Rice played in 29 during his career from 1985-2004.

In the first quarter, Kelce caught his 19th postseason touchdown catch, three shy of Rice's record.

Kelce went over 100 yards receiving on Kansas City's first possession of the third quarter. It is his eighth 100-yard outing in the postseason, tying Rice for the all-time record.
