Jason Kelce surpasses HOF legend for most games played

Posted on December 1, 2022

On Sunday, Philadelphia Eagles’ center Jason Kelce set another record. Surpassing Hall of Fame legend Chuck Bednarik, Kelce has now played the most regular-season games by an offensive lineman in franchise history.

133 of those games have also contributed to his consecutive start streak, which has been accumulating since 2015.


In Week 12, the Philadelphia Eagles reached a 10-1 record after they pulled out a victory against the Green Bay Packers. The game also marked the 170th regular-season game played by center Jason Kelce. He has played 178 total, including the post-season.

Previously holding the record was Chuck Bednarik who played for the Eagles between 1949 and 1962. Bednarik became an NFL legend as he was selected for First-Team All-Pro ten times. The eight-time Pro Bowler was also named to the 1950s All-Decade Team, and three Anniversary All-Time Teams.

Bednarik was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 1967. His jersey has since been retired after finishing 169 games with Philadelphia.

Kelce, a modern-day Eagles’ legend not only has 170 starts under his belt, but 133 of them are consecutive starts. In Week 6 he surpassed Jerry Sisemore (127). He remains third behind Herm Edwards (135) and Jon Runyan (144).

The four-time Pro Bowler is now leading the pact for NFC centers.

Kelce’s streak will continue on Sunday, December 4 when the Eagles play the Tennessee Titans. Kickoff is at 1 PM.
