Travis Kelce flashes a peace sign to Chiefs fans at the team hotel in Baltimore before heading to M&T Bank Stadium for Kansas City’s huge showdown against the Ravens
Travis Kelce, confident and sporting his trademark, flashed the peace sign at cheering fans as he and his fellow Kansas City Chiefs loaded into coaches to drive from their hotel to M&T Bank Stadium early Sunday afternoon.
Seen in these exclusive photos obtained by DailyMail.com Kelce and fellow Chiefs departed shortly after 12:30 pm with the clock ticking down to their AFC Championship face-off with the Baltimore Ravens beginning at 3:00 pm EST.
Kelce, 34, followed quarterback Patrick Mahomes, 28, who was dressed sharp in a maroon suit, complete with a black tie, a smart pocket square and velvet slipper-style shoes despite the damp Maryland rain.
Chiefs fans flocked to see their heroes and rally for what they hope will be the game that will seal their ticket to Las Vegas later in the month.
If Kelce leads his team to victory, the Chiefs will have upset odds to return to the Super Bowl with a chance to win football’s ultimate prize for a second straight season.

Kelce and the Chiefs are one win away from the Super Bowl – but must beat the Baltimore Ravens

Kelce needs to repeat last week’s two-touchdown performance for his team to beat the Ravens
But lose, and the season is over — and he’ll walk into M&T Bank Stadium today knowing most people expect the Ravens to win.
His girlfriend, Taylor Swift, left Manhattan at noon to make the short flight to Maryland from New York while his brother, Jason, is expected to cheer on the Chiefs from the stands as well.
Kelce enters today’s game with confidence rising. He had two touchdowns in the dramatic win over the Buffalo Bills last weekend, with the Chiefs winning 27-24 at Highmark Stadium.
But the Ravens are a tougher proposition, led by Lamar Jackson at quarterback — the runaway pick to win MVP this season.
The Ravens are many people’s pick to go all the way and win the Super Bowl and at the very least, Kelce needs to repeat his heroics from last weekend.
“I think about this one on Sunday and I want it more than I’ve ever wanted one in my life,” Kelce told reporters in Kansas City on Friday afternoon.
“There’s nothing like playoff football,” he added. “It doesn’t matter who you are, where you play, if you rally with the men and women you have and the team you have, like I said you can play wherever you want. You’ve got to bring that juice, no matter who’s in the crowd.’
