Bills fans threw snowballs at Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes as he left the field

Kelce had enjoyed one of the great nights of his career, scoring two touchdowns to lead his side to a 27-24 victory, with girlfriend Taylor Swift and his brother Jason cheering him on from the stands.

But before making his way off the field to celebrate with his loved ones, Kelce made sure he showed his respect to the beaten rival.

He told Allen: ‘You know it’s all the love in the world baby. Love you brother. Helluva job getting here. That s*** is crazy that you got here.’

The two had been filmed appearing to clash as they made their way off the field at the halftime interval, when the Bills held a narrow lead. But Kelce, the Chiefs tight end, appeared eager to make sure there was no ill feeling between them after the game.

Kelce’s first touchdown came in the second quarter to give the Chiefs a 13-10 lead and he scored moments into the beginning of the third, too.

Isiah Pacheco scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 4-yard run 40 seconds into the fourth quarter, the fifth lead change in the game.

Buffalo’s Tyler Bass was wide right on a 44-yard field goal attempt with 1:43 remaining, and Kansas City ran out the clock.

The Chiefs will no doubt toast a magnificent win but attention has to sharply turn to another huge game next weekend on the road against the Baltimore Ravens – the team many pick to go all the way and win the Super Bowl.

‘That’s a great team down there,’ said Kelce’s teammate Isiah Pacheco. ‘We’ve got to be tight as a whole but at Kansas City we head there as one.’

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes echoed Pacheco’s remarks, saying: ‘There´s no weakness there.

‘It´s going to take our best effort. Defense, offense, special teams, they do it all. It´s always a great challenge and that stadium´s going to be rocking, so we´re excited for the challenge.
