When you’re a punter who engages in elaborate celebrations, you better be prepared to get it back in kind when the opportunity arises for your opponents. That’s exactly what happened to punter Marquette King during the Raiders’ 21-13 suffocation by the Chiefs on a frigid night at Arrowhead on Thursday. The crucial win gives Kansas City (10-3) the inside track for the AFC West division title.
Following a Tyreek Hill punt return for a touchdown, Kelce bumped into King in the end zone, and busted out the punter’s horsey dance celebration, that he typically performs after lacing a 60-yard bomb.
Kelce is apparently an All-Pro troll, in addition to being one of the top tight ends in the NFL.

When Kelce, who finished the night with 5 catches for 101 yards, was asked in a postgame interview what was said between he and King during the exchange, he explained, “He told me I didn’t have any rhythm.”
King, a Pro Bowl Twitterer, didn’t let the comments go uncontested. He tweeted out, “I told him I don’t need a reality show to find a girl lol.”

King’s tweet references Kelce’s reality show Catching Kelce, a reality dating show on E! where 50 women compete to be his girlfriend.
It was a tough night all around for King and the Raiders, but they’ll have to get back up on the horse next week, and attempt to regain their momentum heading into the playoffs.
