After the Steelers beat the Chiefs 18-16 in the Divisional round of the AFC Playoffs, Kansas City TE Travis Kelce sounded off about the men in stripes.

The Kansas City Chiefs haven’t won a playoff game at Arrowhead Stadium since Joe Montana was the quarterback. Yeah, it has been a while, and don’t think the players don’t feel the frustration building from the organization and fan base.

After the Pittsburgh Steelers went into Arrowhead and were able to scratch and claw an 18-16 win over the Chiefs, tight end Travis Kelce had a few choice words for the officiating, but more importantly the official who called a hold on the Chiefs when they successfully tacked on a two-point conversion which would have tied the game.

Their next attempt would fall incomplete when rookie Sean Davis broke up the pass. See what Kelce had to say:

Some might call this crying over spilled milk, while most of the Chief faithful probably agree with Kelce’s sentiment. Regardless, the Steelers are moving on to the AFC Championship game to play the host New England Patriots, while Kelce and company will have to endure a long offseason wondering what could have been.
