Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman, Jason Kelce, is gearing up for the highly anticipated Super Bowl rematch against the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday, and he’s not short on motivation.
A key figure for the Eagles since his draft in 2011, Kelce dismisses the notion that the Super Bowl rematch itself serves as the primary driving force.
In a recent interview with ESPN, Kelce expressed that his motivation stems more from personal challenges.
He highlighted that he has never secured a victory against his brother, Travis Kelce, and his former coach, Andy Reid, stating, “I’m motivated to win the game. I don’t need the Super Bowl to motivate me to beat my brother or Andy Reid. I’ve never beaten them in my career. I’m more motivated maybe by that.”
Kelce, a long-time Eagle, playfully teased his brother ahead of their impending matchup, emphasizing the “personal attachment” he feels for the game on Sunday.
Despite the familiarity and personal connections, Kelce stressed the importance of staying focused on the team’s objectives, cautioning against getting distracted by external noise.
Reflecting on how his life has changed amid increased public attention, Kelce acknowledged the whirlwind of recent events, from his podcast with his brother to the spotlight on his family’s personal relationships.
Despite the added scrutiny, he maintains a grounded approach, taking each day as it comes.
Kelce admitted that being a recognizable football player has made simple tasks, such as going to the airport, more challenging due to increased public attention.
However, he remains committed to staying true to himself and his values amidst the evolving dynamics of his public persona.
As the Kelce family continues to capture public interest, this weekend’s game adds another layer to their story.
The brothers will once again face off as the Eagles travel to Arrowhead Stadium for the much-anticipated Super Bowl rematch against the Chiefs.
