The Kansas City Chiefs lost in front of Taylor Swift for the first time this season – falling on Sunday Night Football to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.
Star tight end Travis Kelce grabbed four catches for 81 yards on a sluggish night for the Kansas City offense.
Just a few days later, Kelce reflected back on the game on an episode of his ‘New Heights’ podcast with brother Jason Kelce.
‘It’s just hats off to the Packers, they executed better than us,’ Travis said. ‘We were in the game, start to finish. Didn’t end the way we wanted it to, but we still had a chance to tie it there at the end and go into OT.
‘But two possessions in the first half, the Packers did a great job of controlling the clock. But I though we played pretty damn good.

On the New Heights podcast, Kelce simply said that the Packers ‘executed better than us’
Kelce hauled in only four catches of 81 yards on a night where the Chiefs offense stagnated
‘In terms of moving the ball, we had a 13 play drive and a 14 play drive, both ending up in points. But getting down on the five-yard line and having to settle for a field goal, that’s the difference between 14-6 and 14-14 going into the third quarter.’
Travis then added that games like these are just a part of the game – and that close defeats could lead to better results.
‘There’s going to be moments in the year when you’re challenged more than ever man and I think you’ve got to be able to grow through that,’ Travis explained.
‘And that goes back to what you guys are talking about in Philly, on terms of the culture. I’m not worried about how everybody played, I think we’ve got a lot of great character guys in this building that give a damn and want to get s*** fixed.
‘And we’re gonna get it fixed. That’s never been a doubt in my mind.’
He added, ‘I’m excited to get back out there tomorrow, to practice. I’m ready to bring the juice, bring the energy and help set that culture we have in place.’
The Chiefs will have their work cut out for them when they host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium.
