Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has some major allegations for the Cleveland Browns.

Shortly after Patrick Mahomes had to exit the AFC Divisional Round game with a concussion, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said the Cleveland Browns defensive players were taunting his team after the unfortunate incident. He suggests they were saying, “That’s what we do. That’s what we do,” after the game-altering injury.

Backup Chad Henne came in and saved the day on this impressive 14-yard scamper to essentially seal it. Kansas City won the AFC divisional playoff game 22-17 and the Chiefs will host the Buffalo Bills in the 2020 AFC Championship game next Sunday. However, if what Kelce said was true, then we are going to have to wag the finger at the Browns defense for making such comments.

The Chiefs will need Patrick Mahomes to hold off the Bills next weekend

If Mahomes is healthy enough to go in the AFC Championship game, then the Chiefs will be the overwhelming favorite to advance to Super Bowl 55 down in Tampa. However, if it is Henne who has to get the start, Josh Allen and the Bills will be a rare road favorite over the Chiefs in Arrowhead. Naturally, having Mahomes available is paramount for Chiefs Kingdom on Sunday.

Regardless of what happens next week in the AFC Championship game, the Chiefs and Browns will be among the two best teams in their conference in 2021. It would not be shocking for them to meet again in the postseason. Cleveland just had its best season as a franchise since 1994, while Kansas City is one win away from getting back to the Super Bowl, possibly in line to repeat.

Taunting the Chiefs after Mahomes got hurt was not the way to go, if that is what happened.
