Sprinkled into the Kansas City Chiefs' exciting 27-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2 was a play tight end Travis Kelce surely won't forget. He was picked up and body slammed to the turf by safety Derwin James. Kelce provided a hilarious breakdown of the whole situation on his podcast.
Chiefs vs Chargers Week 2
Kelce was speaking to his brother and fellow NFL player, Jason, on their weekly podcast when he was asked how it felt to be "powerbombed" on national television. Travis laughed and explained that he made a cut back and James was on him like lightning. It's safe to say he caught Kelce off guard.
"When I felt him wrap his arms around my legs, I'm chuckling in my mind. I'm like, this is not about the end well for me right now."- Travis Kelce on Derwin James
In a statement that perfectly summed up the play, Kelce said, "what goes up must come down." The play went viral across social media platforms, but James was quick to make sure he didn't cause an injury. Kelce mentioned that he came up to him after that offensive drive and asked, "Bro, you good?"
Kelce finished the game with 51 yards on 5 receptions (7 targets) as Kansas City fought back from behind to grab the lead for good in the fourth quarter. It was the Chiefs' fifth win in their last seven games against the Chargers and catapulted them to the top of the AFC West standings early on.
It'll be interesting to see who gets the next laugh when Kelce and James meet head-to-head again in Week 11.
