Travis and Jason Kelce shared an intimate moment after Big Brother and the Philadelphia Eagles’ win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.
The Kelce brothers faced each other again in a rematch in Week 11 of last season’s Super Bowl, but it was the Eagles who came out on top this time, earning a 21-17 win.
The win marks the first time Jason has beaten his brother Travis in his NFL career, as the Chiefs bested the Eagles in Super Bowl LVII in Arizona in February.
But there was no bad blood when the brothers hugged on the field after the Monday night football game.
In a clip shared by the NFL, Travis can be seen approaching his victorious brother before pulling him in for a hug.
He then joked that the win was a belated birthday present for the centre, who turned 36 on November 5, before adding: “I love you, big guy.”
The two teams played in a tense, physical match that saw the Eagles take the lead for the first time in the fourth quarter.
Philly trailed 17-7 at halftime, but a pair of rushing touchdowns from Jalen Hurts eventually 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 remaining — came after a 44-yard completion to DeVonta Smith that put the team on the one-yard line.
Despite scoring a touchdown in the second quarter, it was a relatively quiet night for Travis, whose girlfriend Taylor Swift was not in attendance as she toured South America.
He finished the game with seven catches for 44 yards, and also fumbled the ball wide in the red zone in the fourth quarter, when Kansas City was trying to extend a 17-14 lead.
The Kelsey matriarch, Donna, who stole the show in the lead-up to last season’s big game, was once again cheering on her two sons at Arrowhead Stadium.
She was wearing her usual half-and-half shirt as she served soup at the back door before taking shelter inside a suite at Arrowhead on the humid Monday night.
It was the first time she, her ex-husband and Kelsey’s father Ed met the parents of Travis’ girlfriend Swift, but Scott and Andrea Swift reportedly canceled their plans to attend the match.
Since the singer was unable to participate in the game due to the rescheduled Eras Tour show, her parents decided that it “didn’t make sense” for them to meet Kelces without her attending.
