Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was visibly frustrated early in Sunday’s Super Bowl as the team’s offense struggled to get things going. During the second quarter, the team was unable to capitalize on opportunities in the red zone, and Kelce let head coach Andy Reid know how he felt.
After a botched red-zone play, Kelce grabbed Reed from the sideline and screamed in his face, clearly upset that he wasn’t on the play at a crucial time. The Chiefs reached the 9-yard line thanks to Patrick Mahomes’ 52-yard pass to McCall Hardman, but an Isaiah Pacek fumble resulted in a turnover, squandering a scoring opportunity.
Kelce is known for being a dangerous weapon in the red zone and was a favorite target of Mahomes in previous Super Bowl wins. However, at that point in Sunday’s game, he had yet to make a catch, adding to his frustration.
The Chiefs’ growing frustration and rare disharmony on the sideline became apparent as mistakes on both sides made scoring difficult. Kelce’s rant at Reed highlighted the team’s struggles and their frustration at not being able to capitalize on scoring opportunities. Despite this setback, they continued to fight until the end of the game.
