Travis Kelce was spotted returning to his Kansas City mansion on Saturday after the Chiefs’ final practice before their New Year’s Eve game against the Bengals.

In exclusive pictures for DailyMail.com, the tight end’s all-electric Hummer was seen arriving home from the Chiefs’ practice facility near Arrowhead Stadium.

The reigning Super Bowl champions can cement a playoff spot with victory over Cincinnati on Sunday, with Kelce’s girlfriend Taylor Swift expected to be back in Kansas City.

The pop sensation has attended each of the Chiefs’ last two home games, both of which ended in defeat.

Already this month, the Chiefs have been beaten at Arrowhead by the Buffalo Bills and the Las Vegas Raiders.

Patrick Mahomes and Co have lost five of their past eight matches, a run which has plunged into doubt the Chiefs’ hopes of reaching a fourth Super Bowl in five seasons.

Donna Kelce, Travis’ mom, touched down in Kansas City late on Friday night and will celebrate New Years’ Eve with her younger son and Swift.

‘Mama Kelce’ spent Christmas Day in Philadelphia with her eldest son Jason, his wife Kylie and their children Wyatt, Elliotte and Bennett.

But on Friday evening, she landed in Kansas City and made her way to Travis’s new $6million mansion to celebrate a new year.

Earlier this week, Kelce revealed how the Bengals’ decision to overlook him in the 2013 draft still fires him up whenever the two teams face each other.

‘They definitely completely just said “F*** you, Travis,’ he said this week, a decade after Cincinnati picked fellow tight end Tyler Eifert in the first round.

The two teams have meet in the AFC Championship game in each of the last two seasons and Kelce said: ‘I think we made it a rivalry when we finally beat them last year.’

He added: ‘I look forward to playing them just because they’re the Cincinnati Bengals. I went to the University of Cincinnati and they picked a tight end over me in the draft.

‘I just always – not necessarily held it against them – but they definitely completely just said “F*** you, Travis” when they drafted the other tight end. You can’t tell me that they didn’t do that. I was sitting right back there in their backyard.’
