An opposition player accused Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce of being rude. The Kansas City Chiefs were in NFL action on Sunday, traveling to Florida to face the Jacksonville Jaguars. Patrick Mahomes’ two touchdown throws helped the AFC West team win 17-9 at TIAA Bank Field.
On Sunday, the Jaguars failed to score a single touchdown against the Chiefs defense. The home team’s offense, led by quarterback Trevor Lawrence, reached the red zone three times but only managed a field goal each time.
Kelce was making his debut with the Chiefs in the 2023 NFL season. The tight end missed out on playing in the Week One opener against the Detroit Lions after sustaining a knee injury during practice.
However, one Jaguars player was not impressed with Kelce’s performance during Sunday’s game in Florida. Rayshawn Jenkins, a Jacksonville safety, accused Kelce of displaying ‘disrespect’ during the game at TIAA Bank Field.
“Of course [Kelce]’s a good player, but he’s a little too extra, at times,” Jenkins told News4Jax. “He gets to disrespecting, he feels like he’s above people. We’re all men out there, let’s just play the game.”
Kelce was playing in his first game of the season when he scored his first touchdown. He caught a Mahomes ball in the end zone to help the Chiefs expand their advantage in the third quarter.
Kelce talked to media after the game about his knee injury, which occurred when he hyperextended his leg during practice. The Chiefs tight end commended the organization’s medical personnel for assisting him in recovering rapidly and returning to the field a little more than a week later.
