The Kelce brothers have become a media product for the NFL, on and off the gridiron. The history they imprinted on the league since the last Super Bowl in February fuels their businesses, the narrative of their games and the interest of the audience. They were the first brothers in league history to meet in the title game, and that time, Travis Kelce’s Kansas City Chiefs beat Jason Kelce’s Philadelphia Eagles 38-35.
Now, nine months later, in Week 11 they meet again, marking the ninth time in NFL history that an SB rematch has taken place the following season.
The brothers’ story had a popular rise. Before being the Eagles and Chiefs, they played for a short time with the University of Cincinnati Bearcats. Currently, they round off their growth in figures. In six years, the Eagles have raised more than $20 million for people with autism. After Kansas City won Super Bowl LVII, Chiefs fans began donating to Jason Kelce’s charity. They even raised more than $100,000 in 48 hours.
In addition, the brothers released Christmas songs together. Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson and Jordan Mailata raised more than $1.25 million for charities last year with their music album. In 2023, the brothers are co-hosts of a podcast called “New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce,” where they talk about everything from fashion, personal lives, and sports. In a 2022 interview with Forbes, Travis said he appreciates the time he spends with his brother as they record the podcast.
It’s been nice to have that amount of time to be able to sit down and chat. It’s like we were kicking it during dinner when we were together in high school and college.”
In Travis Kelce’s private media novelty, his relationship with Taylor Swift is always mentioned, while Jason Kelce has a documentary about his life and family featuring his wife Kylie Kelce. Jason has said that he cautiously supports his brother’s relationship with Taylor.
“On the one hand, I’m happy for my brother because he seems to be in a relationship that he’s excited about and that’s genuine, but there’s another extreme where we’re like, ‘Man, this is a lot.’ There’s paparazzi talking about him filling up his car with gas before today’s game and I’m like, ‘Is that information really necessary to share?'”
The league also mentioned Swift on its social media accounts for a while. In a statement to TODAY.com, the NFL said in part: “We frequently change our bios and profile pictures based on what’s going on in and around our games, as well as culturally. The news about Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce has been a pop culture moment that we’ve leaned into in real time, as it’s an intersection between sport and entertainment, and we’ve seen an incredible amount of positivity around sports.”
