Travis Kelce Expresses Frustration with Coach Andy Reid on Sideline during Slow Start to Super Bowl

After the Kansas City Chiefs clinched a Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, their offense was initially stagnant in the first half. Travis Kelce was particularly frustrated as he wasn’t in the game during a crucial red-zone play early in the second quarter.

Kelce had been one of Mahomes’ favorite targets in their previous two Super Bowl wins and was expected to be a key player once again. However, he hadn’t logged any catches by the time they reached the 49ers’ 9-yard line on a 52-yard pass from Mahomes to Mecole Hardman. On the next play, Kelce wasn’t in the game, leaving tight end Noah Gray to block instead of participating in what could have been Kansas City’s best chance to score at that point.

Mistakes from both sides led to mounting frustration for Kelce and his teammates as points were at a premium early on. The rare discord on the Chiefs’ sideline resulted in Kelce targeting his head coach, Andy Reid, during an emotional outburst on the sidelines.

Despite Kelce’s disappointment, fortunately for Kansas City, it didn’t hurt their cause as they eventually rallied to tie the game at 19-19 late in regulation time and force overtime. Mahomes led a walk-off touchdown drive capped by a pass to Mecole Hardman that secured a 25-23 win for Kansas City and their third Super Bowl victory in just five seasons.

Afterwards, Kelce was much more positive about his experience and apologized to Reid for his outburst during the game. “He came over and gave me a hug,” Reid told ESPN of Kelce after the match. “He just wants to be on the field and play.” Winning has a way of making everything feel better for everyone involved!
