Rookie Rashee Rice emerging as Chiefs’ No. 1 WR in playoffs

The Kansas City Chiefs have finally found a viable No. 1 wide receiver in rookie Rashee Rice.

In a 26-7 win in the wild-card round against the Miami Dolphins, the second-round pick out of SMU caught eight passes for 130 yards and one TD. Per ESPN Stats & Information, it was the most receiving yards by a rookie in a playoff game in team history.

Over his past seven games, the 23-year-old outpaced Miami’s Tyreek Hill, an ex-Chief. According to Doug Clawson of CBS Sports, he has more receptions (51), receiving yards (648), and first downs (29) than the five-time All-Pro.
