Travis and Jason Kelce shared a heartwarming moment after the older brother and the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.
The Kelce brothers faced off again in the Week 11 rematch of last season’s Super Bowl, but it was the Eagles who came out on top this time, pulling off a 21-17 comeback victory.
The win marks the first time Jason has defeated his brother Travis in their NFL careers, with the Chiefs defeating the Eagles in Super Bowl LVII in Arizona in February.
But there was no bad blood as the brothers hugged on the field after Monday Night Football action.
In a clip shared by the NFL, Travis was seen approaching his victorious brother before pulling him in for a hug.

He then joked that the win was a belated birthday present for the centre, who turned 36 on November 5, before adding: ‘I love you big fella.’
Both sides played a physical, scrappy game with the Eagles taking their first lead in the fourth quarter.
Philly trailed 17-7 at halftime, but a pair of rushing touchdowns from Jalen Hurts ultimately helped them to a 9-1 record as the hosts were shut out in the second half.
Hurts’ second score — which gave the Eagles the 21-17 lead with just 6:20 remaining — came on a 44-yard completion to DeVonta Smith that put the team at the one-yard line.
Despite scoring a touchdown in the second quarter, it was a relatively quiet evening for Travis, whose girlfriend Taylor Swift was not in attendance during her tour of South America.
He finished the game with seven catches for 44 yards, and also fumbled the ball away in the red zone in the fourth quarter as Kansas City tried to extend a 17–14 lead.

The Kelces’ mother, Donna, who stole the show leading up to last season’s big game, once again cheered on both of her sons at Arrowhead Stadium.
She wore her usual half-and-half shirt as she served soup at the tailgate before sheltering in a suite in Arrowhead on the wet Monday night.
It would have been the first time she and the Kelces’ ex-husband and father Ed met Travis’ girlfriend Swift’s parents, but Scott and Andrea Swift have reportedly canceled their plans to attend the game.
With the singer unable to attend due to her rescheduled Eras Tour show, her parents reportedly decided it “didn’t make sense” for them to meet the Kelces without her gift.
