KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As the Kansas City Chiefs prepare to face the Cleveland Browns at Arrowhead Stadium Sunday, choosing which team to root for may not be easy for some in and around Cleveland.

Frank Clark, Anthony Hitchens, Le'Veon Bell and Travis Kelce all have ties to Ohio.

Kelce is from Cleveland Heights, Clark is from Cleveland, Hitchens is from Lorain, and Bell is from Reynoldsburg.

After the Chiefs Super Bowl LIV win, Kelce gave a shoutout to his high school, Cleveland Heights, in a post-game interview.

Wednesday, Kelce said this divisional round of the NFL playoffs has brought on a lot of mixed feelings for those close to him.

“Being from Cleveland and playing the Browns, it’s definitely kind of upped the ante a little bit, made it a little more personal," Kelce said Wednesday in a video conference with reporters. "I absolutely love Cleveland but I understand that we are each others enemies right now and I've got a lot of friends and a lot of family back in Cleveland telling me I’m the enemy. It’s definitely going to be fun going up against the Browns and it’s going to be an exciting game."

Kelce said he expects a lot of his loved ones to be wearing Chiefs and Browns gear this weekend.
