Travis Kelce had a quiet first half in Super Bowl LVIII. The nine-time Pro Bowl tight end had just one catch for just 1 yard at the midway point of the second quarter.
Kelce appeared to have an issue with going to the sideline after a key offensive play early in the second period. With just over 13 minutes left in the first half, Patrick Mahomes found Mecole Hardman.
Kelce was ejected from the game on the next play, much to his displeasure. Chiefs running back Isaiah Pacheco fumbled on the next play, which likely triggered an emotional reaction from Kelce.

He started screaming and ended up hitting Andy Reid. The contact from Kelce caused the Chiefs head coach to stumble, but he regained his balance and remained upright.
Kelce seemed to be demanding that Reed keep him in the game.

CBS Sports sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson also reported that when Kelce first went to the Kansas City sideline, he slammed his helmet in frustration.
Chiefs backup running back Jerick McKinnon intervened and pulled Kelce away.
Other than a 52-yard pass from Mahomes to Hardman, the Chiefs offense struggled for much of the first half. Mahomes finished the first two quarters with 123 passing yards and two sacks.
