The sight of a Kansas City Chiefs mainstay like Andy Reid getting shouted at by Travis Kelce was not in many people’s Super Bowl LVIII bingo cards.
So one can only imagine the shock fans felt when they saw the popular cheeseburger-loving coach seemingly getting berated by Taylor Swift’s boyfriend for the entire world to see.
However, it seems like it wasn’t an entirely serious matter for both the player and the coach.
Travis Kelce, Andy Reid explains viral moment on Kansas City sideline
During the first half of the team’s eventual 25-22 win over the Niners, the AFC champions were playing catchup.
It seemed like Travis Kelce didn’t want the situation to balloon any further and had some choice words to say to his head coach about the game state:

It was clear during the game that he probably said NSFW messages during their tense and terse exchange. However, Kelce quietly swept it under the rug:
“Imma keep it between us … I was just telling him how much I love him.”

He also pointed out how much he loves playing under Coach Reid, as reported by BroBible’s Garrett Carr:
“I’ve the greatest coach this game has ever seen. He’s unbelievable and not only dialing up plays and having everybody prepared, but he’s one of the best leaders of men that I’ve ever seen in my life. He’s helped me a lot with that, with channeling that emotion, channeling that passion. I owe my entire career to that guy and being able to control how emotional I get. I just love him.”
Andy Reid was equally gracious, telling everyone that what happened was just how an ultra-competitive person like Travis Kelce operates:
“(Travis Kelce said) just put me in, I’ll score. So, that’s really what it was. I love that. I mean, it’s not the first time, so I appreciate it,” Andy Reid said after the game.
“He loves to play the game. And he wants to help his team win. I mean, it’s not a selfish thing. That’s not what it is. And I understand that. And so as much as you know, he bumped into me, I get after him, and we understand that you just got me out of balance.”
It seems like his competitive fire did work out in his favor in the end, as he won the Super Bowl with 93 receiving yards in nine catches. And the good times will keep on rolling for the two as they’re both committed to playing at least one more year of pro football.
