How Many Championship Rings Does Travis Kelce Have?

The tight end position has seen many dominant forces over the years, including Tony Gonzalez and Rob Gronkowski, but with Gronkowski out of the league, we can now turn our full attention to Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs who has two Super Bowl rings. 

Since getting drafted in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft, Kelce has amassed 814 receptions for 10,344 yards and 69 touchdowns. These stats include him not playing at all in 2013. His lowest single-season mark for receptions was 67 in 2014, his first season of actual play time. 

After some impressive seasons, the Chiefs drafted quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the duo has been destroying NFL defenses for years.

Over that span, the Chiefs and Kelce have won some Super Bowls, which we’ll examine here and reflect on.

2019-20: Kansas City Chiefs

After a 12-4 regular season under head coach Andy Reid, the Chiefs stormed through the postseason before matching up with the San Francisco 49ers and their powerful defense. 

Mahomes, drafted in 2017, came up big in the fourth quarter, scoring 21 unanswered points.

One of the touchdowns in the fourth quarter was a pass to Kelce, who finished the game with six receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown. Kelce’s touchdown catch put the Chiefs behind by just three points, which is what they needed before two Damien Williams touchdowns to secure the victory en route to Kelce’s first Super Bowl win. 

Following this win, the Chiefs returned to the Super Bowl the following year but lost 31-9 to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Kelce caught ten passes for 133 yards. 

2022-23: Kansas City Chiefs

Missing the Super Bowl 2021-22 season, the Chiefs rebounded and returned to the Super Bowl. Following the incident with Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, this set the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills without a 17th game. Because of this, the Chiefs were in a position, despite the horrific circumstance, to nab the No. 1 seed so long as they didn’t lose a game down the stretch, which they capitalized on. 

They made it to the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles, who were quickly the best team in the NFC. 

Going up against the Eagles, we had Kelce vs. Kelce—Travis for the Chiefs; Jason for the Eagles. 

If not for a Nick Bolton touchdown return and a handful of other plays, the Eagles likely come away with this victory, but the Chiefs held on to win 38-35. 

Kelce again made an impact here, catching six passes for 81 yards and a touchdown. 

His touchdown came in the first quarter to tie the game at 7-7. 

Comparing Kelce’s Rings to the Winningest Players in NFL History

At 33 years old, Kelce has two Super Bowl rings and is on a team that’s a strong competitor for years to come, thanks to Mahomes. However, Kelce isn’t getting any younger. 

Still, he has a chance to earn more, and as you’ll see in the chart below, he has a chance to go up the ranks amongst the winningest players.
