Travis Kelce puts cheap shot on Kyle Van Noy, hits him in groin with football (VIDEO)

Travis Kelce made it known before Thursday night’s game that he was going to embrace the role of captain and be a role model to his teammates.

You’d never have known that if you watched how he acted in Thursday night’s opener against the Patriots.

Kelce took a costly penalty that hurt the Chiefs at the time, and it was completely unnecessary. It happened at the end a play in the third quarter, after he caught a shovel pass. He then put a cheap shot on Kyle Van Noy while on the ground — shoving the football into the Patriots LB’s groin area.

Kelce was hit with flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for his actions.

A ball to the balls — ouch!
