Travis Kelce appeared to lose his cool at Super Bowl LVIII. During Sunday’s big game in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Kansas City Chiefs fumbled the ball when Kelce wasn’t on the field, prompting the tight end to storm over to his coach, Andy Reid.

In the clip, Kelce takes Reid by surprise when he walks up beside him and shoves him, yelling, “Keep me in!” Kelce’s teammate, running back Jerick McKinnon, spotted the moment and walked over to Kelce, pulling him away from Reid.
At the time of the fumble, the Chiefs had yet to score in the game.
After the intense sideline moment, Kelce and Reid appeared to have a sweet interaction, The Athletic‘s NFL writer Mike Jones reported.
“Travis Kelce just walked up and hugged Andy Reid. Reid patted him on the back,” Jones tweeted.
At halftime, the 49ers led the Chiefs 10 to 3.
After the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win, Reid addressed the moment in an interview with ESPN.
“He caught me when I wasn’t looking,” he said with a laugh. “He came over and gave me a hug and said, ‘Sorry about that.’ You know what? He just wants to be on the field and he wants to play. There is nobody I get better than I get him. He’s a competitive kid, he loves to play. He makes me feel young. My balance is terrible.”
Kelce has lots of support at the big game. The tight end’s parents, Donna and Ed Kelce, as well as his brother and sister-in-law, Jason and Kylie Kelce, and girlfriend, Taylor Swift, are all watching on in a suite at Allegiant Stadium.
During a pregame video, Kelce reacted to conspiracy theories about his romance, telling the doubters, “You’re all crazy. Every one of you…you’re crazy.”
Then, in another video, Kelce referenced his girlfriend’s hit 2017 song “… Ready for It?” asking the cameras, “Are you ready for it?” before offering a wink to viewers.
Then, moments before kick off, Swift and Lively had a hilarious jumbotron moment as Post Malone performed “America the Beautiful.”
