All's fair in love, war, and Sunday Night Football clashes between division rivals. And, in the spirit of that, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce isn't backing down from criticism after cameras caught him fake-rubbing one out on national television. During last night's game, Kelce directed an obscene gesture at Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller, apparently as payback for a cheap shot on Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

That's according to Kelce's Twitter account on Monday, anyway, where he blasted off (pun intended) this now-deleted explanation:

Whether or not it was warranted, Kelce can now cross "fake pleasure yourself on national TV" off his bucket list. Next up? Teabag an opposing player after scoring a touchdown.
