Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has already started talking trash about his brother Jason ahead of Kansas City’s game with the Philadelphia Eagles in two weeks.
Jason, the Eagles’ starting center, will chat with Travis and the Super Bowl champions on Monday Night Football in Kansas City on November 20 after both teams had the same bye week this weekend.
“We have a lot of big games in the AFC in November and December, and it starts with the Eagles when we get back (in the US),” Travis, who has dominated headlines in recent months amid his romance with pop sensation Taylor Swift, said.
When pressed to comment specifically on his brother, he added, “You know I can’t let him get one in my backyard.”
The Kelces became the first brothers in history to compete against each other in the Super Bowl last season, with Travis’ Chiefs coming out on top in Arizona.

The brothers will face off in a rematch of last season’s Super Bowl game
Both the 7-2 Chiefs and 8-1 Eagles are coming off hard-fought wins this weekend.
Philadelphia is coming off a 28-23 win over the NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys, while Kansas City is coming off a 21-14 win against the Miami Dolphins in Germany.
Their Monday night game will be built as a potential Super Bowl preview due to the dominance both sides have shown this season.
The game will also serve as a rematch of last season’s Super Bowl, which ended in a 38-35 victory for the Chiefs.
Since winning the Super Bowl, Travis has had another strong season as he continues to play as arguably the NFL’s best tight end despite being 34 years old.
This season, the eight-time All-Pro has returned for 57 receptions, 597 yards and four touchdowns.
Travis’ numbers put him in the NFL’s top-10 in receptions and top-15 in yardage.
Aside from the brother-versus-brother matchup, all eyes will be on the QB battle throughout the game
Adding intrigue to the highly competitive brother-versus-brother matchup that will take place when the championship contenders face off in two weeks, the more crucial matchup will be between two of the NFL’s best signal callers dueling for their respective offenses.
Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has been able to overcome the lack of production from Kansas City’s receiving core and is coming off a two-touchdown performance against Miami.
Hurts, meanwhile, battled through the pain of a knee problem that hampered him as he picked up three touchdowns — two passing and one rushing — as the Eagles slipped past Dallas.
