Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs struggled to a 10-point deficit in first half
Kelce was furious on the sidelines and had a rare meltdown, throwing his helmet
Travis Kelce suffered a Christmas Day meltdown in front of his girlfriend Taylor Swift as cameras caught him slamming his helmet to the ground and clashing with his head coach on the sidelines.
Pop superstar Swift jetted into Kansas City with her mom and dad on Christmas morning, but Travis was clearly feeling a little ‘Bah Humbug’ during the game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Shortly after the Chiefs had gifted their opponents back-to-back defensive touchdowns in an NFL record seven seconds, Kelce made his way back to the sidelines and threw his helmet in disgust.
CBS cameras caught the exact moment it happened, with the helmet bouncing off the turf and into the stands at Arrowhead.
A coach then tried to give Kelce a replacement, but was stopped by head coach Andy Reid, who then gave the tight end a talking to of his own.

In an angry exchange, Reid can be seen bumping into Kelce on a busy sideline, before the player then moves away to cool down.
At halftime, the Chiefs were booed off the field – and it was a far-from-Happy Christmas for the fervent home support at Arrowhead.
In the stands, Swift watched on in a Kelce-themed Christmas hat alongside both of her parents, with mom Andrea believed to be attending her first Chiefs game alongside her daughter.

For Swift herself, a trip to Arrowhead has become the norm in recent months, and she has now attended eight games this season – including travels to Foxborough, New Jersey and Green Bay.
The pair first hit the headlines when they were spotted together in September, and their whirlwind romance has since taken over the NFL in the months since.
It is believed Kelce and Swift will spend the next week together, before the Chiefs play again on New Year’s Eve.
The pop superstar is currently enjoying some time off before the next leg of her sold-out Eras tour, which heads to Tokyo at the start of February.
