Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had a little fun at the expense of his brother as well as teammate Patrick Mahomes during his opening monologue on “Saturday Night Live.”

The charismatic Kelce began his hosting gig by referencing his team’s 38-35 victory over older brother Jason Kelce’s Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII on Feb. 12 in Glendale, Ariz.

“If you don’t know, I just won my second Super Bowl, which was amazing. But to me, hosting SNL is that much better baby,” Travis Kelce said before quickly reversing his field. “I’m lying to you all. I’m kidding. Winning the Super Bowl was way better.”

Travis Kelce, 33, then took aim at his quarterback — well, more to the point — Mahomes’ raspy voice.

He then focused on his brother Jason, who was seated in the front row alongside their parents, Ed and Donna.

“You know, people keep asking me what it was like to beat my brother in the Super Bowl, and it was pretty awkward,” Travis said. “Especially because after the game, we had to ride home together. Our mom drove us there in her minivan, just like the good old days.

“Even though his team lost after being up 10 points at half, my brother is actually really happy for me.”

The camera quickly cut to Jason Kelce, whose face told a different tale.

The Kelce brothers participated in a skit alongside “Saturday Night Live” regulars Chloe Fineman and Heidi Gardner. Travis Kelce volunteered a reference to his suspension from the University of Cincinnati in which the then-sophomore was disciplined for failing a drug test in 2010.

“So it just goes to show you, if you smoke weed and are bad at school, you can win the Super Bowl twice,” he said.

Travis Kelce is a four-time All-Pro and eight-time Pro Bowl selection in a 10-season career, all with Kansas City.
