I don’t believe any Chiefs fan would disagree with this statement: Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce will never just hand the ball to an official after scoring a touchdown.

You just know that Kelce will do something fun after he grabs a touchdown pass.

That was the case on Monday night at Arrowhead Stadium when Kelce grabbed a 17-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Alex Smith against Washington and broke out the chicken head.
