The Kansas City Chiefs (8-2) continue to enjoy their perch above the AFC after a thrilling 30-27 win over the Los Angeles Chargers (5-5) thanks to the dynamic duo of Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.

Both players were lights-out, once again. This time around, however, Kelce cemented his legacy by passing future Hall of Famer Rob Gronkowski for the most 100-yard games in a tight end’s career (33). He also passed Chiefs legend and Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez for the most consecutive games with a reception (136) in franchise history.

Kelce’s scintillating performance and newly-established records didn’t just stay within the realm of Sunday night, however.

And one simple quote from Patrick Mahomes really kicked things into high gear.

“Travis [Kelce] is Travis,” Mahomes said after the game. “He is the greatest tight end of all-time.”

It spilled into the Twitterverse and turned into a mega-debate about which tight end is going to be -or may already be- the best of all-time: Kelce or Gronk?

As you can see below, both your average bear and some really big names in the industry took their swing.

A lot of people hand their hand in the pot:

But, of course, I had to include the tweets backing Gronk to remain fair:

It’s certainly a very good debate. And it’s a tough one, too. Gronkowski is indeed an all-around tight end, but Kelce is just different when it comes to his skillset. There haven’t been many tight ends, if any, that have his combination of IQ and elite athleticism.

Either way, Kelce supporters should be able to shut down this argument, eventually, because Kelce is 33-years-old. He has plenty of good football left in him.

And thanks to that fact, there won’t be much of an argument left by the time he’s retired.
