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

On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. However, their offense struggled early in the game as they failed to score any points after two quarters. Travis Kelce, one of their most dangerous red-zone weapons, was particularly upset about it. He grabbed head coach Andy Reid on the sideline and screamed in his face during a scoreless second quarter.

The Chiefs had driven to the 49ers’ 9-yard line on a 52-yard pass from Patrick Mahomes to Mecole Hardman. However, when Kelce wasn’t in the game for a pivotal red-zone play early in the second quarter, he became frustrated and angry. It was a mistake from both sides that saw points at a premium early in the game.

Despite this setback, Kelce is known for being one of the most dangerous red-zone weapons in football history and has been Mahomes’ favorite target through two previous Super Bowl wins. At that point in Sunday’s game, he hadn’t logged a catch. But fortunately for the Chiefs, they managed to tie the game at 19-19 late in regulation to force overtime. There, Mahomes led a walk-off touchdown drive capped by a pass to Mecole Hardman to secure a 25-23 win and Kansas City’s third Super Bowl victory in the last five seasons.

After the game, Kelce was much better spirits than before and apologized for his behavior on the sideline. Reid told ESPN that there were no hard feelings between them and that he appreciated Kelce’s passion for playing football. “He came over and gave me a hug, said ‘sorry about that,’” Reid said of Kelce. “He just wants to be on the field and play.” Winning has indeed made everything feel better for both parties involved.
