After the game at Lumen Field in Seattle, Kelce, 36, said that NFL officials have “been warning me of that for years,” referring to the rule violation that referees handed him a penalty for on Monday.

“I had a tendency to do that in the past, so they’ve definitely warned me before,” the Eagles center explained to reporters in the locker room of his false start.

Kelce said, “I’ve got to be smarter, especially in that situation,” and noted that the penalty was likely such a close call because it was third-and-sides, and the officials weren’t willing to let him advance the ball at all.

“I think if that’s a full yard to gain, probably not as much, but because it was so short, if I move it forward at all, it’s going to be called, and I’ve just got to be smarter than that,” he said.
