Brothers Travis Kelce and Jason Kelce are on their way to becoming NFL legends: Travis is a record-breaking tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs and Jason is the fan-favorite center of the Philadelphia Eagles.
However, their combined success has created some issues for their parents — such as what team to root for when they face off against each other and how to make it to two playoff games in one day. Travis and Jason’s mother, Donna Kelce, figured out the latter in 2022 when she traveled 1,300 miles in one day to see both her sons play in their NFL Wild Card games.
The brothers faced off in the Super Bowl for the first time when the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs played each other on Feb. 12, 2023. Travis and the Chiefs ultimately defeated Jason and the Eagles 38-35 in the historic match-up. As soon as the game ended, Jason gave his little brother a hug and the two seemingly shared a few encouraging words.
Later, Travis got emotional when speaking to the press about his brother following the win. “There’s nothing you can really say to a loved one in a situation like that,” he said while fighting back tears. “You joke around all the time and say you want to beat your brother on the biggest stage, but it’s a weird feeling.” He added, “There’s nothing I can say to him other than I love him and he played a hell of a year, a hell of a season.”
In November 2023, Travis and Jason’s teams faced off again during regular season play. The Eagles beat the Chiefs 21-17 — a feat they haven’t achieved since 2009.
From their childhood in Ohio to their decade (and counting) in the NFL together, here’s everything to know about Jason and Travis Kelce.
