Jason had a message on Twitter for his brother and the Chiefs in the moments after Kansas City's victory.

"I’ve got a Kansas City sweatshirt I’m gonna wear for the next three hours, and then that’s it for the rest of the year," Jason said after the Eagles' win. "Win or lose, I’m done being a Chiefs fan in three hours."

He also noted how "special" it would be to face Travis and former Eagles head coach Andy Reid, who now leads the Chiefs.

"For the people on board with the NFL being scripted, it’s pretty good evidence,” Kelce joked. “It’s been a fun year for Trav and I on multiple levels. It’d be really special obviously playing against him and Andy Reid and a lot other familiar faces.”
