Travis Kelce leads Chiefs locker room celebrations after reaching the Super Bowl as Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid deliver a rallying cry to their Kansas City team: ‘We ain’t done yet!’
Travis Kelce led the epic locker room celebrations for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night after another historic performance carried his team into the Super Bowl for another season.
Kelce scored an early touchdown in the 17-10 win over the Baltimore Ravens and passed Jerry Rice with his 152nd postseason reception in the second quarter of the game – an all-time NFL record.
And after Kelce kissed his girlfriend Taylor Swift on the field in the immediate postgame celebrations, Kelce took the party into the Chiefs locker room.
The tight end was seen posing for photos with his euphoric squad as they partied in the locker room after being crowned AFC champions again.
Coach Andy Reid addressed the team and said, ‘Hey, if you didn’t know, we’re going to the Super Bowl. We’re not done. But in the meantime enjoy it.’

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes followed his coach with the growing cheers, saying, “Like I said, we’re not done yet. Let me hear it on three – one, two, three, CHIEFS!’.
Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones puffed on a cigar in the locker room after the game. He received a $1 million bonus from his team reaching the Super Bowl.
Meanwhile, Justin Reid took a moment to get a photo with Steve Spagnuolo, the defensive coordinator for the Chiefs who oversaw the master plan that tied up Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Reid also retweeted a tribute to Spagnuolo on X from former NFL player Ryan Clark, who said: ‘Steve Spagnuolo is the best big game defensive coordinator of our time! Greet him. He did it against the biggest, the best and the most dominant. He made them all look human, average and amateurish. He is that guy. This defense was lights out!’
Reid and Jones were seen walking around the locker room wearing ‘In Spags We Trust’ t-shirts.
The man himself was humbled by the t-shirt and said: ‘I’m so proud of the players, I’m so happy.
‘I was humbled and embarrassed (about the t-shirts) to be honest with you. But those guys had fun with it. Thank God we finally did well.’
Amidst the celebrations, they also watched the Detroit Lions vs. San Francisco 49ers playing on an iPad while they waited to find out who they would be playing in Vegas next month.

If all goes according to plan for the Chiefs, Sunday’s win will be just a footnote in the season’s success
Mahomes repeated his rallying cry in a media conference after Sunday’s win
And of course, if all goes well, Sunday’s celebrations will be just a footnote in the season with another Super Bowl now on the horizon.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes told his team that the job wasn’t done yet as he faced media questions while the celebrations were underway.
“It’s been a heck of a year,” Mahomes said. ‘We were underdogs the last few games. We never feel like underdogs.
“We have a lot of guys on this team who know how to win. When the playoffs come around, they’re here to make it happen. And now we’re in the Super Bowl. The job is not done.’
