Video shows pregame drama between Travis Kelce, Justin Tucker

Travis Kelce throws Justin Tuckers helmet

Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce appeared to be unhappy with Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker during pregame warmups before the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.

Roughly an hour before kickoff at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md., James Palmer of NFL Network shared a video on X that the reporter says showed a tense moment between Kelce and Tucker. According to Palmer, Kelce told Tucker that the kicker had to move because Tucker was stretching near where Patrick Mahomes needed to warm up. Tucker apparently did not oblige.

At that point, Kelce booted one of Tucker’s kicking balls and tossed Tucker’s stuff aside.

Tucker smiled, so he did not appear to be all that bothered. It was tough to tell from the video if Kelce was just messing with the kicker, but Kelce looked pretty serious as he walked away.

There was also some shoving between Chiefs and Ravens players during pregame warmups, which is not all that uncommon before a big game. You usually just don’t see a kicker involved in any of it, but Tucker is not most kickers.
