Jason and Travis Kelce are going where no pair of brothers — neither the Mannings, nor the Barbers, nor the Watts — has gone before — the Super Bowl…against each other.
In a league filled with sibling matchups, the Kelces will make history as the first pair of brothers to battle it out in Super Bowl LVII.
Travis, 33, is the tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs and quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ favorite target. He was reported to have back problems before the AFC Championship Game, but he looked in top form as he recorded seven receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown, as well as some memorable postgame celebrations.
While he and his older brother won’t be on the field at the same time, he’ll need the same competitive fire against the Philadelphia Eagles.
As center, Jason, 35, is charged with starting the Eagles offense and protecting quarterback Jalen Hurts. Together, they led the Eagles to a 14-3 record and the No. 1 seed in the NFC.
Their parents, Ed and Donna, have been juggling the NFL playoffs for more than a decade now. Last year, Donna made headlines when she watched games in Tampa Bay and Kansas City on the same day.
Either she decided that cross-country travel wasn’t in her cards or she had full confidence in her sons’ ability to advance, but this year she opted to trail Kansas City in the divisional round and Philadelphia in the conference championship. That gamble paid off as she now has twice as much reason to travel to Arizona next month.
Siblings often shout at each other on social media and share a podcastsbut make no mistake, there will be no preferential treatment from February 12th.
Officially done being a Chiefs fan this season!!
