Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is known for the occasional on-field outburst. New England Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy found this out the hard way.

Van Noy and Kelce were exchanging some post play pleasantries on the ground when all of a sudden, Kelce removed Van Noy in rather spectacular (and for Van Noy, painful) fashion.

Kelce was penalized for the play. Another look at the play shows that Van Noy might have instigated the initial exchange.

Let the rest of the NFL players take note. Don’t mess with Kelce after a play. Or if you do, keep the midsection well protected.
