For the first time in what seems like forever, there was some tension on the Kansas City sideline, as Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce was seen putting his hands on offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy during what turned out to be a loss against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football.

According to Kelce himself, however, the two have patched things up and any talk of a feud between them is pure speculation.

Perhaps Kelce was frustrated with his lack of opportunities, as he only managed to haul in four of Patrick Mahomes' 10 targets for 70 yards, and looked like a total non-factor late in the game. For a guy used to cranking out 100-yard days with his eyes closed, it makes sense that he would be steaming about a lack of touches.

It's one thing to vent a little bit on the sideline, but putting your hands on a coach amounts to insubordination.

Hopefully for the Chiefs, this incident is in the past and Kelce is telling the truth. If there is still some animosity between these two, they could throw a monkey wrench into the well-oiled machine that this team has been over the first quarter of the season.
