GLENDALE, Ariz. – The sibling rivalry for NFL fans ended Sunday when Kansas City captain Travis Kelce overcame his brother Jason’s Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl 57.
The Kelces brothers were the first brothers to compete against each other at a Super Bowl, and good-natured days gave way to heartfelt affection when the brilliant 33-year-old Travis won at State Stadium. Farm.
Travis, who has 81 yards of receiving and one touchdown, told reporters he had a strange feeling after the win over his brother’s team.
“You really can’t say anything to a loved one in a situation like that,” he said. “You always joke around and say you want to beat your brother on the biggest stage, but it’s a weird feeling.”
The pair exchanged hugs on the field as confetti flew for the Captain, who won his second Super Bowl in four years.
“I can’t say anything to him other than I love him and he’s been playing for a year, a bad season,” Travis told reporters.
Their mother, Donna Kelce, became a fan favorite and sat next to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell during the game.
Both brothers have previously won a Super Bowl ring — Jason with the Eagles in 2018 and Travis with the Chiefs three years ago — but with bragging rights on the line, there’s no shortage of momentum.
“It was hard to get here,” Jason told reporters. “Obviously I want to win but (I’m) happy for Trav.”
