Travis Kelce was rooting for Cleveland to end their playoff drought last week against the Steelers. However, now that the Browns are poised to play the Chiefs in the divisional round, he has to abandon his hometown roots. The Chiefs tight end spoke to the media this week about what it’s like to be a Cleveland sports fan and all that comes with it. Kelce stated that his friends and family will be wearing Chiefs gear, but might still have some covert Browns fandom in them.

While Travis Kelce still has love for the city of Cleveland, he stated that this game is personal for him.
“I understand what it means to be a Cleveland sports fan, to be a die-hard at that,” Kelce said. “I think a lot of the close friends and family will be wearing Chiefs gear but throwing an orange shirt with Browns helmet on underneath. It’s definitely going to be mixed feelings for a lot of people I know.”
Being from Cleveland and playing the Browns has definitely upped the ante a little bit, made a little more personal,” Kelce said. “I absolutely love Cleveland, but I understand we are each other’s enemies right now.”

The Chiefs are currently 10 point favorites against the Browns, so Travis Kelce and his team definitely have a statement to make. This is also the first time the two franchises have met up in the postseason. Kelce may have grown up a Browns fan, but he is a Chief now and he knows what has to be done if the Chiefs want to accomplish their goals.
The game will be played at 3:05 p.m. EST on Sunday and will air on CBS.
