Travis Kelce: Fans hail tight end after he refuses to blame the officials for Chiefs’ shock defeat to the Green Bay Packers as Taylor Swift watched her man lose for the first time in her fifth visit

Travis Kelce drew the admiration of NFL fans after he refused to blame the Kansas City Chiefs’ loss on the officiating Sunday night.

The Chiefs suffered a shock 27-19 loss to the Packers as Taylor Swift watched her NFL beau suffer defeat for the first time in frigid Green Bay.

However, the game, which marked the reigning Super Bowl Champions’ fourth loss of the season, ended in controversy when Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes attempted a Hail Mary in search of the touchdown Kansas City needed to possibly tie the game.

Kelce, who was among the scrum of players in the end zone, appeared to be shoved in the back by Packers’ Jonathan Owens – the husband of Simone Biles – but none of the officials felt it warranted a flag and Green Bay clinched the victory.

But following the game, the tight end refused to be drawn in to blaming the officials when asked by reporters in the locker room what he thought of officials not making a pass interference call on the play.

I ain’t gonna blame this on anybody but ourselves,’ the two-time Super Bowl winner said, taking the high road.

NFL fans loved Kelce’s response, praising the 34-year-old for his ‘classy’ response on social media.

‘I’m p****d at the terrible officiating but blaming the refs is what losers do,’ one X, formerly known as Twitter, user said.

Another added: ‘He seems so sad but he is so dang classy and respectful here it physically pains me to watch this #Chiefs #TravisKelce.’

‘Wish his fans were as smart as him. Lil bit of respect for him here,’ another posted.

Others hailed Kelce’s mindset following the defeat, claiming he was setting a good example for his younger teammates.

‘This is the correct mindset. Thank you Kelce,’ one fan said, while another echoed the sentiment, adding, ‘It’s the correct mindset to have it. They just got to get better which I know they can do and be. Chiefs needs a hell of a wake up call.’
