Kansas City Chiefs Travis Kelce has been doing a great job this season of trying to become one of the best tight ends in the NFL after an array of strong performances.

But on Sunday night live on National television, Kelce did quite the opposite as he saw his reputation plummet thanks to an obscene gesture he made during the game, which at the time looked as though it was directed at referee Walt Coleman.

However, despite what it might have looked like on TV after Kelce made this gesture that can be SEEN ON THIS LINK. When you watch the footage it looks as though Kelce is making the gesture towards the referee, however, Kelce maintains he was aiming it towards Denver Broncos star Von Miller, who was called for a personal foul on the play in question.

Kelce apologizes for gesture 

"Kelce went on Twitter afterwards to say his gesture was intended for Miller and not Coleman, as it may have seemed to what was left of the viewing audience," the Denver Post reported.

Kelce then deleted that tweet and followed it up by saying, "Sorry for that last tweet. I felt as if I had to clarify my doing, forgot I couldn't express myself on here."

It is a pretty embarrassing story for both Travis Kelce and his team the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are currently in a battle to make the playoffs and this is not the type of news story they want to be embroiled in.

Head coach Andy Reid had a short and simple response to the obscene gesture as the Chiefs look to get this bad publicity behind them as soon as possible.

"It sounds like it was a bit of an immature act," Reid told ESPN. "I normally don't let those things go by. I'll address that. I've got to see it first and then make sure."
