SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Getting a Twitter follow from Travis Kelce was one of the major accomplishments this season for San Francisco 49ers second-year tight end George Kittle.
Now heading into the final game of the season, Kittle is in a battle for Kelce in a race for the most productive season ever for a tight end.
Kelce goes into Kansas Citys season finale against Oakland with 1,274 yards receiving, the fourth-most ever for a tight end. He needs 54 yards against the Raiders to break the mark set by New Englands Rob Gronkowski in 2011.
