Super Bowl 2024: Errett Travis Kelce yelled at Andy Reid; Here’s what they had to say about the Chiefs after their OT win

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – The Kansas City Chiefs didn’t enjoy much offensive success to start their latest championship bid, getting just one down in a scoreless first quarter against the San Francisco 49ers — before repeating as champions in overtime. Star tight end Travis Kelce showed frustration early in the game, hollering at coach Andy Reid in a sideline tirade caught by broadcast cameras.

Kelce grabbed Reid and yelled directly at him before running back Jerick McKinnon pulled his teammate back. The exchange came shortly after fellow Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco lost a fumble deep in 49ers territory. Some fans online suggested that Kelce was not on the field for the play, which may have been the reason for his disappointment.

After one half, the Chiefs star had just one catch for 1 yard as they trailed 10-3. However, after the break, Kelce came alive and finished with nine catches for 93 yards as his Chiefs won. Following their recent championship win, Reid joked to the CBS Postgame Show that Kelce “keeps me young.”

“He tested that hip,” Reid quipped. “It knocked me off balance – normally, I’d give it a bit, but I didn’t have my legs under me.”

The head coach added during his postgame presser that Cales’ outburst came from wanting to help the team.

“The part I like is that he loves to play the game and he wants to help his team win,” Reid told reporters. “It’s not a selfish thing, that’s not what it is, and I understand that. So as much as he hits me, I get behind him and we understand that.”

This isn’t the first time Kelce has let his emotions run high during the Chiefs’ offensive struggles. Earlier this year, during Casey’s Christmas Day matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders, he went viral for throwing his helmet on the field. The tight end joked to ESPN that he was just telling Reid “how much I love him.”

“I’ve had the greatest coach the game has ever had,” Kelce told reporters. “He’s incredible not only dialing plays and getting everybody ready, but he’s one of the best leaders I’ve ever seen in my life. He’s helped me a lot with that, challenging that emotion, that passion, and I owe my whole career to that guy. And being able to control how emotional I am. I love it, man.”

With his team-leading 93 receiving yards, Kelce became the third player in NFL history to lead three different Super Bowl champions in receiving yards, joining Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin.

Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes said the Kelce-Raid moment really showed the fire that drives the Chiefs.

“That moment right there, it speaks to what kind of team we are, we all love it,” Mahomes said. “Everybody loves the game, everybody wants to compete. Even Coach Reid wants to compete, you watch out or you might get a little bit. That’s the mentality we’ve always had and that’s how we win games like this. “
