I wonder if Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker regrets firing up Travis Kelce ahead of the AFC Championship game between the Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs?

Tucker, who is widely regarded as the best NFL kicker of all time, was doing his pregame warmups and purposefully got in the way of the Chiefs. Specifically, he invaded the space of Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes, and that turned out to be a bad idea.

It was evident that Tucker was doing it all in good fun, but it wasn’t viewed as “fun” by the Chiefs. You can see in the video below that Travis Kelce made sure to clear out some room for Mahomes so that his quarterback could warm up properly:

Kelce certainly didn’t view the whole stunt as “funny,” and his stat line and aggressiveness during the game that got under the Ravens’ skin proved that he was a tad fired up after the incident.

But if his hard-nosed football playing wasn’t enough to convince you he was upset about it, Travis made things very clear in his newest edition of the New Heights podcast. It was there with his brother Jason that Kelce explained how the whole altercation with Justin Tucker went down and shared a few choice words that were directed at the Ravens kicker:

“If you’re trying to go onto the other team’s designated area, you kind of stay out of their way. You don’t interfere with what they have going on. That is the unwritten rule.

If you want to be a f**king d*ck about it, you keep your helmet and your football and your f**king kicking tee right where the quarterbacks are warming up and they’re dropping, eyes are looking left and they’ve got a helmet down by their feet.”

Admittedly, what Tucker did was a little dangerous, and the Chiefs didn’t appreciate the “joke” that the kicking GOAT was trying to play on them. As Travis went on to say, he knew Tucker was mostly being lighthearted about the whole thing, but he and Mahomes were not in a joking mood ahead of the game:

“If you’re not going to pick that up, I’ll happily move that for you. Justin came out and said it was more of a joking gesture, and I get it. He was kind of winking at me, being a d*ck about it…

Sorry if we took it to a level that you didn’t think it would get to. But if you’re gonna be a d*ck, I promise you, I can one-up you every time.”

You can hear more about it (specifically the Tucker incident) around the 19-minute mark of the video below:
