Kelce will play in his 170th game for the Eagles. This will break Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik's record for most regular-season games played by an offensive lineman in the team's proud history.

It's safe to say Kelce has been Mr. Reliable for the Eagles. Sunday night's game will also be his 133th consecutive start for the Eagles. He hasn't missed a game since Week 7 of the 2014 season.

Official explains why face mask penalty wasn’t called in Eagles’ 32-21 loss to Commanders

  Official explains why face mask penalty wasn’t called in Eagles’ 32-21 loss to Commanders PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles had the ball with 9:14 left in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s game against the Washington Commanders, finding themselves down 23-21 but in possession of the ball, needing only a field goal to take the lead. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts threw a pass to tight end Dallas Goedert, who began to run up field, but was brought down by a face mask, fumbling the ball that was later recovered by Commanders defensive tackle John Ridgeway and ran it in for a touchdown. However, a replay official ruled that Ridgeway was touched at the 34-yard line, and the ball was brought back to that spot. © Tim Hawk/nj.

This past summer, the five-time Pro Bowler was given a keg by Eagles head coach Nick Siranni as a pitch to stay with the team for his 12th season, per Sports Illustrated's Wilton Jackson.

The 35-year-old has spent his entire career with the Midnight Green. From legendary Super Bowl speeches to becoming one of the most awarded centers of his era, Kelce has done it all.

Breaking the Eagles record for most regulars-season games played by an offensive lineman has to be somewhere near the top of the list for the undersized center (6-3, 295) who was drafted in the sixth round and rose to the occasion to become a future Hall of Famer.
