Kansas City Chiefs as ‘Friday Night Lights’ characters
By Matt Conner
Travis Kelce as Tim Riggins
Quick, name the one Chiefs player most likely to reference everyone in the locker room by their uniform number or some nickname. If you didn’t answer Travis Kelce, you’re wrong.
Also quick, name the member of the Dillon Panthers most likely to have his own dating reality show. If you didn’t answer Tim Riggins (or at least Smash Williams followed by Tim Riggins)…
From his on-field gestures to his charming way with the ladies to his on-field production, Kelce is the perfect Tim Riggins. He doesn’t show up drunk to practice, for which we’re thankful, but he would still get the job done even if he did. He’s filled with personality but it’s never a threat to the locker room.
Riggins has a lot more static off of the field than Kelce has ever had, so let’s hope that ole “eight seven” can keep it that way.
