Travis Kelce has been spotted in an animal-print tracksuit ahead of his must-win Kansas City Chiefs game on New Year’s Eve against Cincinnati Bengals.

The NFL star was ironically donning tiger stripes before Sunday’s big game in Kansas City, where Kelce is under intensifying pressure to help lead his team back to winning ways after their Christmas Day loss to Las Vegas Raiders.

He was pictured leaving his $6million mansion in Kansas City early on Sunday morning as he gears up for one of the day’s big games in the NFL.

His girlfriend Taylor Swift is expected to return to Arrowhead Stadium to cheer him on alongside his mom, Donna, who flew into Kansas City on Friday night to be with the couple for the holidays.

Tight end Kelce is also closing in on an incredible NFL record of his own today – he is just 32 yards away from his eighth-straight 1,000-yard season. No other tight end in NFL history has had more than two straight seasons of 1,000 yards or more.

But Kelce and the Chiefs were beaten on Christmas Day by the Raiders and Kelce’s temper got the better of him during the loss.

He was filmed throwing his helmet to the ground in anger at how one play had unfolded before his coach, Andy Reid, appeared to shove into him in an attempt to get him to calm down.

The loss was the fifth in eight games for the Chiefs, an alarming slide of form for last season’s Super Bowl winners.

And the 34-year-old was still seething at the Raiders loss when he recorded his weekly instalment of his New Heights podcast, alongside his brother Jason.

‘We literally played Santa and gave them a present,’ Kelce said.

‘That was embarrassing. Everybody in the building knows how embarrassing that was. We got a short week so we’re going to forget about this s*** real quick.

‘It’s a f***ing frustrating experience right now and every single day we’re trying to fix it. I promise you guys.

‘It’s not just one. It’s not just me playing dog s***… we played so trash as an offense that we put the defense in a really tough spot at the end of the game. It’s frustrating when you’ve got the guys you need and things aren’t going your way.’

Kelce has reportedly made grand plans for the offseason when Swift is on tour in Europe

Away from the field, Swift and Kelce have been spending the holidays together with the singer enjoying some downtime in what has otherwise been a relentless schedule of touring.

And it was reported earlier this week that Kelce has some grand plans with her while she travels the rest of the world in 2024 with her massively successful Eras Tour.

Kelce has reportedly booked trips to Italian vineyards and tables at some of Europe’s finest restaurants for when she tours around the continent next summer.

But before that, Kelce will hope he has a lot of football left to play.

After the Bengals game, Kelce and the Chiefs round the regular season out in Los Angeles against the Chargers.

The playoffs then start from January 13 and the Super Bowl is in Las Vegas on February 11.
