Travis Kelce brings home the hardware, holds up ‘end of the bargain’ with Taylor Swift


LAS VEGAS– Travis Kelce brought home the gear he promised his girlfriend Taylor Swift.

The Kansas City tight end finished with nine receptions for 93 yards, including a crucial catch in overtime, to help the Chiefs win their second straight Super Bowl with a 25-22 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night.

One play after Kelce’s reception put the Chiefs on the 3-yard line, Patrick Mahomes found Mecole Hardman alone in the end zone for the game-winning TD, helping Kelce keep his promise while sending Swift and everyone else in his suite in a frenzy of celebration. .

“I have no doubt in my mind,” Kelce said. “We have the best quarterback in the league, we have the best offensive line in the league and we have the most determination of any team in the NFL and you saw all of that tonight.

“I guess at this point I take it for granted, but I know we’ve been in every game I’ve played, no matter what the score is or no matter how much time is left, this guy has magic in his right arm.”

One night after Swift won her fourth career Grammy for album of the year last week, Kelce said he told her he “should hold up my end of the bargain and bring some material back to the house too.”

Swift flew halfway around the world to watch her boyfriend, who also said Monday during opening night of Super Bowl week: “I want this one more than I ever wanted a Super Bowl before in my life.”

After the match, Kelce said it was time to move on to the next feat.

“I’m going to go ahead and enjoy everything that just happened,” he said. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I’ve been able to experience three times now. It gets sweeter and sweeter each time.

“You know, the goal was always to get three. But we couldn’t get here without getting two and having that goal on our backs all year. »

Kelce’s mood at the end of the game was an emphatic change after he collided with Andy Reid on the sideline in the second quarter, sending the 65-year-old Kansas City coach back a few steps after teammate Isiah Pacheco fumbled in the red zone.

Kelce ran up to Reid and yelled at him after the fumble.

“Did you guys see that?” Kelce said. “I’m going to keep this between us unless my mic tells the world. I was just telling him how much I loved him.

Reid said Kelce just wanted to be on the field. “There’s no one I’m better than him,” Reid said. “He’s a competitive kid. He loves to play. He makes me feel young. But my balance is terrible.”

This was the second secondary incident involving Kelce and Reid this season. During a game against the Raiders on Christmas Day, an angry Kelce pierced his helmet on the sideline, and when a staff member attempted to return it to the tight end so he could enter on the field, Reid grabbed the helmet and refused to give it away. he returns.
