WATCH: George Kittle one-ups Travis Kelce, breaks TE receiving record

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

On Sunday, Travis Kelce broke Rob Gronkowski’s NFL record for most receiving yards in a single season by a tight end. Just a short while later, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle one-upped Kelce, and he did it in style.

Check out this 43-yard touchdown pass that gave Kittle the new NFL record.

Previously in this same game, Kittle set another 49ers record as well.

It’s pretty remarkable that he’s having this kind of success. A fifth-round pick out of Iowa last year, he’s becoming one of the NFL’s best players. And he’s been doing it all this year with backup quarterbacks.
