Travis Kelce, the star player for the Kansas City Chiefs, has given fans a sneak peek into the team’s preparations for Super Bowl LVIII. He described their practice sessions as “chaos” and “chippy.”
The Chiefs have been training at the Las Vegas Raiders’ Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center, getting ready for the big NFL game against the San Francisco 49ers. This will be their second Super Bowl in two years and a rematch of the 2020 spectacle.

Despite playing in four out of the last five Super Bowls, Kelce says his teammates are more eager than ever to win. Many players are chasing their third career ring in Nevada, so there’s a lot at stake for Kelce and his team.
Before stepping onto the NFL’s biggest stage once again, the tight end shared some details about the mood in the Chiefs camp. He said: “It’s chaos, a lot of fun and a lot of energy at practice. Everybody’s focused and dialed in on their job at hand.
Kelce also hinted at some intense competition within the team, saying, “I’m not going to lie and I’m not going to say who, but things got a little bit chippy in practice [Wednesday].”
The top-performing star player said: “The offensive and defensive lines are trying to get their work in, trying to make sure everybody’s ready for the game. It just got me fired up. I love the focus and energy of the team right now.”

In response to recent comments comparing his team to the legendary New England Patriots, he said: “Yeah, they set the standard of dominance in the NFL.” He reflected on his past experiences: “I was a part of that and felt that dominance in 2015 when I lost to them and again in 2018. It’s been thrown around a lot. It being our third in five years and I think the number ‘three’ is a big number in dynasties. Hopefully, we can get this thing and you guys [reporters] can start talking about dynasties. I’m trying to get this third ring.”
Remember how between 2001 and 2019, the Patriots simply dominated the sport? They played in the Super Bowl nine times and managed to win six in that period. With quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick at the helm, they bagged back-to-back titles in 2003 and 2004 after their first one in 2001.
The Patriots had a similarly impressive second burst of success, winning three more championships between 2014 and 2018. However, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid dismissed any talk of a new dynasty on his end before the upcoming game, stating: “I haven’t gone there.”
“I don’t think about that. I’m tied up in the game and trying to take care of that. I’m sure somewhere I’ll know when that time is. It’s not today and it won’t be Sunday.”
