Kelce: “I get amped up when we’re coming into a hostile environment like this.”

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, 28-10, in what should be the last matchup at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. The Raiders will relocate to Las Vegas next year.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and Travis Kelce both weighed in after the game about saying goodbye to the original Black Hole.

“We had some great games here,” Reid said. “I’m not going to tell you I am going to miss it. There are some things that come with that. This year we didn’t have to dodge sewage in the locker room or anything. Things that come with an older building that you have to deal with and, but the tradition is pretty awesome.”

“The Raiders man, the fan base here is… They’re going to let you know how they feel and you know that’s why I love coming here,” Kelce said. “I mean the bus ride in is going to feel weird going to a different location. I get amped up when we’re coming into a hostile environment like this.

“Seeing everyone flick me off coming in on the bus and see a few people’s cheeks you weren’t trying to see. It’s just, it’s football at its finest, man or pregame at its finest and you know. We’re going to miss that for sure. So, shout out to everybody at Oakland for making it what it was.”

Kelce finishes his career at the Coliseum with 32 catches for 449 yards, four touchdowns and in six career games, let’s say somewhere in the range of 15 to 20 unwanted cheeks.
