Mecole Hardman's ill-fated fumble through the end zone for a touchback against the Bills caused heart attacks all throughout Chiefs Kingdom on Sunday night, though future Hall of Famer Travis Kelce has taken full responsibility for the mistake.

Appearing on his New Heights podcast with his brother Jason, Travis blamed himself for not blocking properly, ultimately leading to the fumble.

See what he had to say below.

Travis admitted the player he was meant to block made a better play that he did, and noted he needs to make it up to Hardman, especially given the vitriol the former second-round pick is experiencing from Chiefs fans this week.

The play came at the beginning of the fourth quarter, immediately after a wild decision from the Bills' coaching staff on a bizarre fake punt that gave Kansas City a chance to build a two-score lead.

Obviously, the Chiefs didn't cash in on the opportunity, though it ultimately didn't matter in the end.

Kelce expressed confidence in Hardman's ability to respond this week, and he could be a player to watch as the Chiefs take on the Ravens in the AFC Championship. We'll see how involved Hardman is with the offensive game plan, but I'm hoping he gets his moment in the sun.
