Travis Kelce scored 4 touchdowns last week, and he did it despite finishing the game with only 25 yards of offense. Nobody has ever done that before. Nobody has even come close.

In the Super Bowl era, only eight other players have scored 4 touchdowns while finishing with fewer than 100 yards (rushing and receiving). Danny Woodhead was the previous low-yardage guy, at 60 yards in a game against the Dolphins in 2015.

One other active player has scored 4 TDs while finishing with fewer than 100 yards: Marvin Jones, who caught 10 passes for 93 yards and 4 TDs against the Vikings in 2019. Jones also had a 4-TD game with Cincinnati, so would be cool to see him get one more this year – giving him three, all with cat-themed teams (Bengals, Lions, Jaguars).
