The Kelce brothers break down in tears as they reflect on Super Bowl LVII
| Last updated
Super Bowl LVII was an emotional day for Travis and Jason Kelce.
Travis Kelce’s Kansas City Chiefs beat Jason Kelce’s Philadelphia Eagles, 38-35, for the Lombardi trophy.
But for the two brothers, the game was about a whole lot more than football.
They became the first brothers to ever square off at a Super Bowl, and of course, with that came a whole lot of media attention.
Incidentally, their parents Donna and Ed Kelce became media stars.
And although the dust is beginning to settle after the mammoth game, the two brothers are still feeling the heavy emotions that came with playing against each other.
The Kelce stars appeared on the New Heights podcast this week to chat the emotions associated with the game and reflect on the momentous achievement for both of them.
It was a moment shared with their mother Donna that really meant the world for them.
Jason said: “The moment I saw mom is when I got really emotional, because man, it was so awesome …”
Jason began to choke up as the two stayed quiet and regained their composure before continuing.
Travis wiped tears off his face as he responded: “All right now.”
Jason replied: “Yeah. Oh man, f**k.
“It was awesome for, you know, she was on top of the world for a week.”
“She was the heavyweight champ, man,” Travis added.

Super Bowl 2023 was often referred to as the Kelce Bowl, and not just because of their two brothers.
Their mum, Donna, became a star as much of the media attention went their way.
Travis said: “She was on top of it and she shined the whole time, man. That was the coolest part.
“Mom, you absolutely killed it. Dad, you’ve been killin’ it.”
And even though only Travis could come home with a Super Bowl ring from the game, both brothers agreed that it was just as special to celebrate the game with their parents.
Jason Kelce added: “Ironically, you lose the Super Bowl and you’re crying after the game, and they’re not tears of sadness, they’re tears of joy.”
