travis Kelce has heaped praise on Chiefs teammate Patrick Mahomes for ‘having our backs’ after their controversial defeat by the Bills on Sunday.Mahomes is under the spotlight this week for reacting furiously to a late offside call which denied Kansas City a potential game-winning touchdown against Buffalo at Arrowhead.
