Travis Kelce slips in 'Sunday Night Football' interview, thinks Broncos are actually the Raiders

Travis Kelce had an impressive outing on Sunday night.

The tight end helped lead the Kansas City Chiefs to a 22-16 win against the Denver Broncos while racking up 136 receiving yards and a touchdown at Arrowhead Stadium.

Kelce, however, made one rather important slip in his postgame interview with NBC’s Michele Tafoya.

He didn’t know which team he had just beaten.

Right off the bat, Kelce confidently mixed up the Broncos with the Las Vegas Raiders.


In his defense, he had just come off a historic performance.

Kelce has now recorded 613 receiving yards over the past five games, the most by a tight end in that span since 1970. His 136 receiving yards on Sunday brought him to more than 1,000 on the season, too — which officially gave him his fifth straight 1,000-yard season. He is now the first tight end in NFL history to accomplish that feat.

With those numbers, a slip like that can easily be overlooked. And he seemed to take it well on Twitter, too.

The interview wasn’t a total loss, either. Kelce left fans with one rather interesting sound bite.
