However, it was not the only act by Kelce that raised concerns. When Titans' safety Joshua Kalu lined up against Chiefs' tight end Kelce near the goal line, Kalu appeared to get pushed in the facemask and lost his helmet on the play. As stated by Fox News, a penalty flag was thrown in the end zone and the defender was called for holding. But many people were left wondering why Kelce was not given a penalty. One wrote, "What about Kelce ripping Kalu's helmet off? The announcers act like, oh it's okay. No biggie. That's unbelievable to me. #Titans" Another football fan wrote, "I just saw the replay of the holding call on Josh Kalu. Travis Kelce ran right into him and ripped his helmet off. Not sure exactly what you want Kalu to do in that situation."

After the penalty, Kalu too expressed his take on the whole situation in the video. When asked “What are you supposed to do in that situation when he ran into you?” he responded by saying, “I guess I’ll place my hand better. I will go and watch the film again and know what I can do better for the next time.”
