Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was a guest on the NFL Network’s postgame show after Thursday night’s 21-13 win over the Oakland Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium.

Kelce was asked about his big game (five catches for 101 yards) and what happened after Tyreek Hill’s punt return for a touchdown.

Raiders punter Marquette King followed Hill after his 78-yard punt return for a touchdown, and had a few choice words for the Chiefs rookie.

King was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct, and it got worse after that. Kelce then started doing one of King’s dance moves (the bronco dance) right next to King.

Here is what Kelce had to say about that:

King, however, remembered things differently. He took a shot at Kelce’s reality dating show, “Catching Kelce.”

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid spoke on the 21-13 win over the Oakland Raiders and the ruptured Achilles injury to middle linebacker Derrick Johnson on Thursday night.
