Both Andy Reid and Travis Kelce have vowed to return to the Kansas City Chiefs next season.
Having won back-to-back Super Bowls, the Chiefs will be aiming to become the first team in NFL history to win three consecutive titles.
Reid and Kelce have a unique relationship. After Isiah Pacheco lost a fumble in the second quarter on Sunday night, Kelce bumped Reid and screamed in his face on the sideline before being led away by Jerick McKinnon.
The coach said afterward he appreciated the veteran tight end's passion.
"He caught me off balance," Reid said, indicating the contact was worse than it looked. "I wasn't watching. He was really coming over [and saying], 'Just put me in, I'll score. I'll score.' So, that's really what it was. I love that. It's not the first time. I appreciate him.
"The part I love is he loves to play the game and he wants to help his team win. It's not a selfish thing. That's not what it is. I understand that. As much as he bumps into me, I get after him and we understand that. He just caught me off balance."
Kelce said his emotions got the better of him.
"I didn't care about my catches," he said. "I just wanted to ... I wanted the score to be different. Coach has asked us to speak our minds and I just wanted to let him know how much passion I had for this team.
"He's one of the best leaders of men I've ever seen in my life. And he's helped me a lot with that, with channeling that emotion, with channeling that passion. I owe my entire career to that guy and being able to kind of control how emotional I get and just love him."
