Travis Kelce Makes His Thoughts On Controversial Call In Chiefs-Jets Game Clear

3 Min Read

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has weighed in on the controversial holding call that went against his team in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the New York Jets.

The call came on the Chiefs’ final drive of the game, with the Chiefs trailing 30-27 and facing a 4th-and-1 at the Jets’ 35-yard line. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed a pass to Kelce, who gained a few yards. However, the referee called holding on Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, negating the play and giving the Jets a turnover on downs.

The Jets went on to win the game, and many Chiefs fans were upset by the holding call. Kelce himself was critical of the call, saying that it was “a ticky-tack call” and that the referee should have let the play go.

“It was a ticky-tack call,” Kelce said after the game. “I don’t think it was a hold. I think the ref should have let the play go. It was a big play in the game, and it cost us.”

Kelce’s comments are sure to spark a debate among NFL fans. Some fans will agree with him that the holding call was ticky-tack, while others will think that the referee made the right call.

It’s important to note that the holding call was reviewed by the replay official, who upheld the call on the field. This means that the referee must have had a clear and convincing view of the hold in order to call it.

However, it’s also important to note that holding calls are subjective, and there is no one right answer. What one referee considers a hold, another referee may not.

Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to call holding is up to the referee on the field. In this case, the referee called holding, and the replay official upheld the call. The Chiefs can only hope that they won’t be on the wrong end of a controversial call like this again in the future.
