Travis Kelce was not amused when comedian Keegan-Michael Key made a joke about Patrick Mahomes.
The NFL Honors has a long tradition of hosts making some of the best athletes in the world laugh and feel embarrassed with jokes throughout the ceremony. Kelce felt that pain when cameras caught his stunned reaction to a joke about his quarterback.
Keegan-Michael Key took a shot at Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and when the camera focused on Mahomes’ favorite target, tight end Travis Kelce, his facial expression said it all.
Key was lauding at Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow’s outfit as he entered Arrowhead Stadium for the AFC Championship, where they defeated the Chiefs to advance to the Super Bowl. Then came the joke:
“This outfit is so mind-blowing, Patrick Mahomes saw a picture of this outfit at half time and forgot how to play football,” Key said.
“Forgive me, Travis,” Key said after.
His joke was actually spot on. In the first half, Mahomes completed 18 of his 21 passes for 220 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.
In the second half, and overtime he only completed eight out of 18 passes for 55 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.
The Chiefs blew a 21-3 halftime lead and the rest is history.
