The Kansas City Chiefs suffered a tough loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night, falling 21-17 in a closely contested game. After the game, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce took the opportunity to reflect on his own performance and express his commitment to improving.
“I’ve got to be better,” Kelce said bluntly. “I didn’t make enough plays tonight, and I let my teammates down.”
Kelce finished the game with six catches for 68 yards, but he failed to find the end zone. He also had a key drop on a third down late in the fourth quarter that could have kept the Chiefs’ drive alive.
Despite his personal struggles, Kelce remained focused on the team’s overall performance. He praised the Eagles’ defense for making it difficult for the Chiefs’ offense to get into a rhythm.
“They played a great game,” Kelce said. “They were physical, they were disciplined, and they made us work for everything we got.”
Kelce also acknowledged that the Chiefs made some mistakes that cost them the game. He said that the team needs to clean up those mistakes and execute better in order to be successful.
“We’re a good team, but we’re not a great team yet,” Kelce said. “If we want to be great, we’ve got to be better in all areas.”
Kelce’s comments reflect the leadership and accountability that have made him a respected figure in the NFL. He is not afraid to hold himself accountable for his mistakes, and he is always looking for ways to improve.
The Chiefs have a tough schedule ahead of them, but they have the talent and experience to make a run in the playoffs. If Kelce can continue to improve his play, he will be a key factor in their success.
