Las Vegas – Travis Kelce brought home the hardware he promised his girlfriend Taylor Swift.

One play after Kelce’s reception put the Chiefs at the 3-yard line, Patrick Mahomes found Mecole Hardman alone in the end zone for the winning touchdown, in the process helping Kelce fulfill his promise while sending Swift already everyone in their suite to a frenzy of celebration. .
One night after Swift won the fourth Grammy of her career for album of the year last week, Kelce said he told her “I’d have to hold up my end of the deal and bring home some hardware too.”
Swift flew halfway around the world to see her boyfriend, who also said during the NFL’s opening night on Monday, “I want this more than I’ve ever wanted a Super Bowl in my life.”
After the game, Kelce said now on to the next feat.
“Well, you know, the goal has always been to get three,” he said. “But we couldn’t get here without getting those two and having that goal on our back all year. … What about that. We have the opportunity to do it three times in a row.”
Kelce’s late-game vibe was an emphatic change after he shoved Andy Reid on the bench, backing the 65-year-old Kansas City coach after teammate Isiah Pacheco fumbled inside the red zone. during the second quarter.
Kelce ran toward Reid and yelled at him after the fumble. CBS reported that Kelce was angry that he was not on the field for the play and yelled at Reid to keep him in the game.
“Did you guys see that?” Kelce said. “I’m going to keep it between us unless I have my microphone up and tell the world. She was just telling him how much she loved him.”
This was the second bench incident involving Kelce and Reid this season. During a game against the Raiders on Christmas Day, Kelce angrily pinned Kelce’s helmet to the sideline, and when a staff member attempted to hand it back to the tight end so he could take the field, Reid grabbed the helmet and refused to give it to him. back.
