Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce took all the blame for the team’s Week 11 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles at Arrowhead Stadium despite reporters clearly attempting to bait him into bashing the wide receivers for their multiple drops.
Kelce, 34, instead focused on his red zone fumble that ultimately turned the tide in Philly’s favor. When reporters again doubled down on getting him to blame someone else, he slightly lashed out against them.
“I just mentioned the turnovers in the second half,” Kelce said. “I just mentioned the flags. It’s all fixable. We just got to do it.”
Chiefs lead the league in dropped passes. The receivers had a couple of key drops against the Eagles, especially Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the red zone down the final stretch of the game.
Kansas City has not scored in the second half through the past three games and now have a 7-3 record.
Travis Kelce doesn’t care about playing Eagles
Kelce was also cut and dry when saying the Eagles matchup does not mean anything more than other games despite his brother playing on the other side.
Philly now has a 9-1 record for a second consecutive season and are looking like Super Bowl contenders despite visible struggles.
Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts only threw for 150 yards and zero touchdowns on 14-for-22 completed passes in the win against the Chiefs.
Even though Travis was clearly ticked off at the loss, he did joke around with his brother Jason while saying hello on the field.
