KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) -

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was ejected after complaining to officials for not calling a pass interference penalty, then whipping his towel at the official as if it was a flag.

The Pro Bowl tight end was hit with two personal foul penalties and sent to the locker room with the Chiefs leading 16-7 early in the fourth quarter. Both of the penalties were enforced, resulting in 30 yards of penalties and taking the Chiefs out of field-goal range.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid grabbed Kelce as he was walking off the field and gave him a stern talk. After the ejection, Kelce whipped his gloves into the crowd as he exited the field.

Following the game, Kelce issued an apology on Twitter. 

"I apologize to everyone that had to witness my actions on the field today...it was unprofessional and unsportsmanlike," he said. "A missed call is just that...missed. no matter how much frustration builds on the field, the refs don't deserve that kind of response."
