Jason Kelce calls out younger brother Travis over his sideline antics in Super Bowl LVIII

This is interesting. The Eagles legend wasn't happy with his little brother's behavior on the sideline.

Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce didn't let his brother, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, off the hook for his behavior during Super Bowl LVIII.

During the first half of the game, cameras caught Travis flipping out on Chiefs coach Andy Reid on the sideline. Kelce was seen screaming in Reid's face, and he even knocked Reid off balance with a body bump.

The Chiefs went on to win the game 25-22 over the San Francisco 49ers to claim their second consecutive Super Bowl title, but on a new episode of the pair's New Heights podcast, Jason laid into his brother a bit.

“You crossed the line," Jason said. "I think we can both agree on that. . . . Let’s be honest, the yelling in his face, too, is over the top. I think there are better ways to handle this, retrospectively.”

Obviously, Jason is correct in this situation. Playing passionately is one thing, but accosting your head coach on the sideline for millions to see isn't acceptable.

Travis Kelce owns up to mistake and expresses love and respect for Chiefs coach Andy Reid.

To his credit, Travis has taken full responsibility for his actions, which he immediately regretted.

"I immediately wished I had took it back," Travis said. "Coach Reid actually came up to me right after that and didn't even have harsh words for me. . . . He just let me know, 'Hey man, I love your passion, but I got cameras on me all over the place, man.'"

Kelce has spent his entire professional career playing for Reid in Kansas City, and the two have built a very strong bond in the process.

"I'm a passionate guy. I love Coach Reid," Travis said. "Coach Reid knows how much I love to play for him, how much I love to be a product of his coaching career. I'm not playing for anybody else but Coach Reid. If he calls it quits this year, I'm out there with him."

That's a bold claim from Kelce, but luckily for Chiefs fans -- and unfortunately for the rest of the league -- it seems very likely that Kelce and Reid will be continuing their productive partnership next season.
