In a rather serendipitous turn of events, it appears that Taylor Swift has become something of a good luck charm for Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs, who are riding a four-game winning streak with her in the stands.
The 33-year-old pop sensation made her first appearance in the heart of Kansas City on September 24, there to cheer on 34-year-old Kelce and the Chiefs as they triumphed over the Chicago Bears. And it wasn’t a one-time thing; Swift graciously extended invitations to some of her A-list celebrity pals to join her, creating an electrifying atmosphere that inspired the Chiefs to obliterate the New York Jets at their home turf.
After a brief hiatus, Swift made her triumphant return to Kansas City, where she witnessed Kelce and his gridiron warriors conquer the Broncos under the Thursday Night Football lights.
But the true icing on the cake came on a Sunday, as the Grammy-winning songstress descended upon Missouri to watch the Chiefs seal a decisive victory over the Los Angeles Chargers with a final score of 31-17.
The game was an intense tussle in the first half, with both teams exchanging field goals and touchdowns. At halftime, the Chiefs held a 24-17 lead, thanks in large part to a spectacular touchdown by Kelce. He seamlessly hauled in a pass from quarterback Patrick Mahomes, bulldozed through the defense, and reached the coveted end zone. In a joyous celebration, Swift joined forces with Mahomes’ wife, Brittany, to exchange a specially choreographed handshake and even a chest bump.
The second half, in stark contrast, became a defensive battleground, with neither team managing to score until the final three and a half minutes of the game when the Chiefs clinched another touchdown, ultimately sealing the 31-17 victory. The game concluded on a high note, with the Chiefs intercepting a Chargers pass to secure the win.
Swift’s presence at the game was the culmination of a whirlwind week that included a star-studded girls’ night out in Los Angeles with her dear friend, Selena Gomez. In the previous weekend, Swift and Kelce enjoyed quality time in the Big Apple, both making surprise appearances on Saturday Night Live.
Travis Kelce opened up about his SNL experience during his podcast, “New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce,” presented by Wave Sports + Entertainment. He described the experience as nothing short of electric, expressing the thrill of being in that iconic studio. Their appearance marked the first episode of the season, and Kelce couldn’t contain his enthusiasm, saying, “I had such a freaking blast, man.” It’s worth noting that the NFL star had already graced the SNL stage as a host earlier in the year.
As for the budding romance between Swift and Kelce, it seems to have garnered the blessing of none other than the Chiefs’ head coach, Andy Reid, who openly shared his thoughts on their relationship during an interview on “Outkick’s The Five Spot” earlier in the week.
