Broncos' Von Miller calls Travis Kelce 'fake Gronk'

The Denver Broncos got the last laugh after a scoop-and-score fumble recovery led to a 31-24 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night.

After the win, Broncos linebacker Von Miller continued to rub it in, calling Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce a fake Rob Gronkowski.

While Kelce's preferred nickname is Zeus, some have taken to referring to him as "baby Gronk" due to his dynamic athletic ability, especially in the passing game. Miller clearly takes offense to this comparison.

It's interesting that Miller went out of his way to call out the tight end while replying to a tweet that had nothing to do with Kelce, but rather referred to his exotic sack dance.

Miller would have been better pointing to this play, wherein he manhandled the tight end:

This isn't the first back-and-forth between Miller and Kelce. The Chiefs' tight end apologized last season after making an NSFW gesture at the linebacker following what he deemed was a late hit on quarterback Alex Smith.
