Jason Kelce shows where loyalties lie when asked about Travis' three-peat Super Bowl bid with Chiefs


Jason Kelce will continue to support the Philadelphia Eagles in 2024 – not the Kansas City Chiefs and brother Travis.



The 36-year-old, who recently retired from the NFL, watched his younger brother lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the third time in five years after a thrilling overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers in February. The 25-22 win made the Chiefs the first franchise since the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004 to secure back-to-back Super Bowl titles.

No team in NFL history has ever won three consecutive Super Bowls, with Travis aiming to create history. Jason ended his 13-year career following the 2023 season which saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeat the Eagles in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

As he plans to watch the action as a fan from next season, the centre said he will cheer on the Eagles – even when they play against Travis and the Chiefs. “I will root for the Eagles of course because I will always be an Eagle first and foremost,” the Super Bowl LII winner said when asked who he would support on the latest New Heights podcast episode.

“I will still root for Travis to have a good game because he’s my brother, but I will definitely be cheering on the Eagles in this scenario.”

The Chiefs tight end described his brother’s comments as “bull****” before adding: “Well good luck to your Eagles.”

The brothers played against each other in Super Bowl LVII last year, where Travis and the Chiefs won with a score of 38-35. The Eagles were ahead at halftime with 24-14. That encouraged Jason to continue his career into 2024, but he’s now retired.

“Having lost one now, I think for sure — you can try and not let that be a factor, but man, the hunger and the desire to get back there and finish it,” Jason told Sports Take with Rob Ellis and Derrick Gunn back in 2023 on his decision to continue for another year.

“Even though it’s going to be a completely new season, a new set of guys and not the same team, you can’t help but that be a factor.”

He added: “That’s the aspect that all the former players say they miss the most. It’s not the actual game, you know, it’s being in the locker room, it’s going and playing the game but with your teammates. It’s being around, quite frankly, a group of individuals who are all driven to be the best they can be. I’ve learned through talking to former players that that is the thing I’m probably going to miss the most.”
