Why did Kelce clash with Reid on the sidelines?

During the Super Bowl, the Kansas City Chiefs found themselves in a dire predicament after being unable to score during the second quarter against the San Francisco 49ers.

Reid decided to let Noah Gray take the field. He wanted the 24-year-old to block during a play that did not turn out in the Chiefs’ favor as running back Isaiah Pacheco made a fumble. This frustrated Travis Kelce, since he wanted to be there, being a key figure on the team. Moreover, he did not even make a catch until that point in the game. Meanwhile, Patrick Mahomes emerged as the trump card who led the Chiefs to victory.
