philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce confirmed that he needed a bathroom break late in their game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.With 25 seconds left, Eagles kicker Jake Elliott stepped in to take a 59-yard field goal with a chance to tie the game at 31 and completing the field goal also gave the Eagles, especially Kelce, a lifeline in the form of an overtime period.
On the latest episode of the New Heights podcast, Kelce revealed to his younger brother Travis that he did not leave the field after Elliott’s conversion because he was banged up.’I had to take a p***,’ said Kelce. ‘I knew after he made the field goal that I wasn’t going to have to do it on the sideline. That I was going to be able to go in.
‘I was going to blue-tent it. because I had to go. I had been holding it and then after he made it, I thought this is going to OT, I can go do this in the locker room real quick.’Yeah, we all know what you were doing,’ Travis continued.Kelce previously joked about other teams’ stadiums’ not having enough stalls for visiting teams, which may have factored into his quick trip to the bathroom.
Kelce mentioned how the small amount of stalls is ‘not ideal pre-game when you’re trying to time up your pre-game ritual.’Fans were initially concerned by Kelce’s exit, not knowing if he’d return for the overtime period after giving away two penalties in regulation.
The Eagles went on to defeat the Bills, 34-37. After his bathroom break, Kelce re-entered the game and made a crucial block that allowed his quarterback Jalen Hurts to run into the end zone and win the game for Philadelphia.The victory moved the Eagles to a 10-1 record as they continue to lead the NFC East and hold the best standing in the NFL this season.The Eagles look to extend a five-game win streak to six against the San Francisco 49ers on December 3.
