Travis and Jason Kelce shared a heartwarming moment after the older brother and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.
The Kelce brothers faced each other again in the Week 11 rematch of last season’s Super Bowl, but it was the Eagles who came out on top this time, earning a 21-17 victory.
The victory represents the first time Jason has beaten his brother Travis in his NFL career, with the Chiefs defeating the Eagles in Super Bowl LVII in Arizona in February.
But there was no animosity as the brothers embraced on the field after the 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 scrappy, physical game that saw the Eagles take their first lead in the fourth quarter.
Philly trailed 17-7 at halftime, but two rushing touchdowns from Jalen Hurts ultimately helped them to a 9-1 record as the hosts were shut out in the second half.
The second of Hurts’ scores — which gave the Eagles a 21-17 lead with just 6:20 left — came after a 44-yard completion by DeVonta Smith, which put the team on the line within metre.
Despite a touchdown in the second quarter, it was a relatively quiet evening for Travis, whose girlfriend Taylor Swift was not present during his tour of South America.
He finished the game with seven catches for 44 yards and also fumbled the ball in the red zone in the fourth quarter, as Kansas City attempted to extend a 17-14 lead.
Kelces mother Donna, who stole the show in the build-up to last season’s big game, was once again cheering on her two sons at Arrowhead Stadium.
She wore her usual half-and-half shirt as she served soup at the tailgate before sheltering in a suite at Arrowhead from the Monday night rain.
This would have been the first time she, her ex-husband and the Kelce’s father, Ed, met Travis’ girlfriend Swift’s parents, but Scott and Andrea Swift reportedly canceled their plans to attend the game.
With the singer unable to attend the match due to the postponement of her Eras Tour show, her parents reportedly decided it “didn’t make sense” for them to meet the Kelces without her gift.
