Travis and Jason Kelce shared a touching moment after big brother and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.
The Kelce brothers faced each other once again in the rematch of last season’s Super Bowl Week 11, but it was the Eagles who emerged victorious this time, pulling off a 21-17 comeback win.
The victory marks the first time Jason has beaten his brother Travis in their NFL careers with the Chiefs beating the Eagles in Super Bowl LVII in Arizona in February.
But there was no hard feelings as the brothers embraced on the field after Monday Night Football action.
In a clip shared by the NFL, Travis could be seen approaching his victorious brother before hugging him.
He then joked that the win was a belated birthday present for the center, who turned 36 on Nov. 5, before adding, “I love you, big guy.”
Both teams played a physical and difficult game in which the Eagles took their first lead in the fourth quarter.
Philadelphia trailed 17-7 at halftime, but a pair of rushing touchdowns from Jalen Hurts helped them get to 9-1 as the hosts were eliminated in the second half.
The second of Hurts’ scores, which gave the Eagles a 21-17 lead with just 6:20 remaining, came after a 44-yard completion to DeVonta Smith that set up the team at the one-yard line. .
Despite scoring a touchdown in the second quarter, it was a relatively quiet night for Travis, whose girlfriend Taylor Swift was not present while he toured South America.
He finished the game with seven catches for 44 yards and also fumbled in the red zone in the fourth quarter, as Kansas City was trying to extend a 17-14 lead.
The Kelce’s mother, Donna, who stole the show in the lead-up to last season’s big game, was once again cheering on her two sons at Arrowhead Stadium.
He wore his usual half-and-half shirt as he served soup at the tailgate before retreating to a suite in Arrowhead on the humid Monday night.
It would have been the first time she, her ex-husband and Kelce father Ed met Travis’ girlfriend Swift’s parents, but Scott and Andrea Swift reportedly canceled their plans to attend the game.
Since the singer was unable to attend the game due to her rescheduled show on the Eras Tour, her parents reportedly decided it “didn’t make sense” for her to meet the Kelces without her gift.
