Kelce Brothers Facing Off In Super Bowl LVII

super bowl

Super Bowl LVII will be a family reunion of sorts for two of the NFL’s best offensive players. Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs punched their ticket to the championship game with a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, while Jason Kelce and Philadelphia Eagles earned their spot by pummeling the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

There will be a lot of attention and retrospection about the brothers and their relationship growing up in the weeks leading up the Super Bowl.

Each player has already won a championship, and will be looking for his second ring. Travis Kelce’s title came a few years ago in Super Bowl LIV, as the Chiefs defeated the 49ers. Jason Kelce’s ring came in Super Bowl LII, when the Eagles outlasted the New England Patriots.

Travis Kelce Career Summary

The more well-known of the Kelce brothers, Travis has been one of the most productive offensive weapons in the NFL for the last decade. It’s fair to say that he’s on a short list of the most athletic tight ends in league history, and is one of the most well-rounded players in the game.

He has the ability to set the edge on a running play with his blocking ability, which often goes unnoticed on a week-in, week-out basis. In the passing game, Kelce is a walking mismatch. He’s too big to be covered by a cornerback, and too fast for opposing linebackers to stay with. Defenses are put in a predicament when they play against him, and often times elect to double-team him.

The eight-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro was predicted to take a step back this season. In his age 33 season, Kelce was as good as ever, racking up 12 touchdowns and 1,338 yards. Even though he was more of a focal point for opposing teams with the departure of Tyreek Hill, Kelce found ways to get open.

Jason Kelce Career Summary

He’s not quite the household name like his brother is, but Jason Kelce has a special place in the heart of Philadelphia fans. He’s made the Pro Bowl six times, and has been named to the All-Pro team five times. Each and every offensive possession starts with the talented center, who is responsible for containing nose tackles at the point of attack, and helping to organize protection for the quarterback.

In addition to his stellar play, Jason Kelce is also one of the most reliable players in the NFL, despite the physically demanding position he plays. He has not missed a regular season game since the 2014 season, and his snap rates have been at or near 100% for the vast majority of his career. This level of durability has allowed the Eagles’ offensive line to remain one of the very best units in the league.

Jason Kelce will have his hands full during the Super Bowl, as the Chiefs feature some talented pass rushers on the other side of the line of scrimmage.
