Travis Kelce and Jason Kelce are the first brothers to ever compete against each other in a Super Bowl. According to CBS News, the parents of Travis Kelce, the tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, and Jason Kelce, the center for the Philadelphia Eagles, will get to see their sons play against each other during Super Bowl LVII. Also, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, this game will be historic because it will be the first time in Super Bowl history that two brothers face each other. The parents of the Kelce brothers have seen both of their sons win NFL championships, but they have never seen them both go to the Super Bowl at the same time. Both sons have also had successful Super Bowl runs. In 2020, the Chiefs beat the 49ers in the Super Bowl, and in 2018, the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots. Travis also went to the Super Bowl in 2021, but lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Kelce brothers’ parents got to witness these achievements, and now they will be able to witness their kids compete against each other for a new achievement. 

After just barely beating the Bengals, Travis Kelce stated that the matchup for this year’s Super Bowl is a “cool scenario.” Travis went on to say, “My mom can’t lose. I’ll just leave it at that. It’s going to be an amazing feeling playing against him. You won’t see me talking too much trash because of how much respect and how much I love my brother. But it’s definitely going to be an emotional game.” On the other hand, after the game between the Bengals and Chiefs, Jason Kelce tweeted, “Officially done being a chiefs fan this season!!” He was joking when he tweeted that, but has not made any other comments. Lastly, Ed Kelce, the Kelce brothers’ father, expressed that he is grateful that both of his sons play on offense because they will not be on the field at the same time. He went on to say, “That probably rules out any fist fights.” Whether or not the brothers bump heads or play nicely, there will be only one Super Bowl winner.
