“National Tight Ends Day” really exists.

And guys in that spot are having a great NFL Sunday.

When both George Kittle and Garrett Celek caught a touchdown pass for the San Francisco 49ers in 2018, Kittle told his teammates that it was “National Tight Ends Day; it’s a holiday!” It was probably just a joke at first, but it has since turned into something more. Something that teams, the NFL, and even the Pro Football Hall of Fame know about.

The NFL:

To give you an idea of how some people in this situation have enjoyed today, which is the fourth Sunday of October.

The New England Patriots’ Mike Gesicki

New England shocked the Buffalo Bills by beating them 29–24, and Gesicki caught the game-winning pass. Hunter Henry caught two passes for 27 yards, and Pharaoh Brown caught two passes for 51 yards. He wasn’t the only Patriots tight end to catch a pass, though.

A score by Gesicki also led to the return of the Gesicki Griddy in honor of the holiday:

Dalton Kincaid, Buffalo Bills

In the Bills-Patriots game, Kincaid wasn’t the only tight end who stood out. Dalton Kincaid, a rookie tight end for the Buffalo Bills, caught 8 passes for 75 yards, which was the most of any Bills player.

Kyle Pitts, Falcons of Atlanta

Kyle Pitts didn’t have a great game for the Falcons—he caught three passes for 47 yards—but he did this:

That shape should be on a T-shirt for National Tight Ends Day next year.

Mark Andrews, Ravens player

Of all the early games, the Ravens’ 38–6 win over the Detroit Lions may have been the most shocking.

There were four scores and 63 yards gained by Mark Andrews in the win. Someone else who was enjoying the day seemed to notice how well he played.

Andrews even talked about that after the game:

The New York Giants’ Darren Waller

The Giants made a big move to get Waller this summer, and he may have had his best game since moving to the NFC East. In New York’s 14–7 win over the Washington Commanders, Waller led the team with 7 catches for 98 yards and a score.

Cleveland Browns player David Njoku

David Njoku caught five passes for 54 yards in the Browns’ win over the Indianapolis Colts. He is still healing from the fire pit accident at home that badly burned his head and face.

Travis Kelce in the Kansas City Chiefs

Here’s Travis Kelce, the most famous tight end in the world right now. He plays for the Kansas City Chiefs. Kelce has already caught 10 passes for 158 yards and a score in the first two and a half quarters of play:

And just in case you were asking, yes, there is a new holiday celebration here:
