Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce's sideline tantrum and collision with head coach Andy Reid sparked reactions from his NFL colleagues Sunday night during Super Bowl LVIII.
Kelce appeared to be upset about not being in the game when running back Isiah Pacheco fumbled after a long pass from Patrick Mahomes to Mecole Hardman. His tensions spilled over and landed on Reid's face. Kelce only had one reception for one yard in the first half.

Reid and Kelce hugged on the Super Bowl podium after the game. The now three-time Super Bowl champion head coach said he appreciated passion and that moments like Kelce's frustrations keep him young.
“They're passionate players,” Reid said, via Pro Football Talk. “I love that, even if they push my chest on the other side of the 50. I appreciate that. I love that the kid wants to play and wants to be out there playing.”

Kelce was a little more cryptic when he went on ESPN to talk about the moment.
“Man, it was uh… I'll keep it between us unless my mic tells the world. I was just telling him how much I love him,” Kelce said with a smile.
Mahomes added: “That moment right there, it speaks to the team that we are. Everybody loves it. Everybody loves the game, they love to compete and Coach Reid wants to compete.”
