After the Kansas City Chiefs’ dominant 41-10 victory over the Chicago Bears, Patrick Mahomes stirred up a bit of controversy by mentioning Taylor Swift. During an interview with Erin Andrews post-game, Mahomes fueled rumors about Travis Kelce’s relationship with the pop star by stating that he intentionally focused on passing to Kelce because he knew she was at Arrowhead Stadium.

As the NFL’s biggest star, Mahomes recently signed a massive $260 million extension with the Chiefs. In the most recent game, he skillfully threw for 272 yards and three touchdowns while evading sacks. Despite a late-game injury scare, Mahomes may have sensed the excitement on social media when people noticed Swift’s presence.
“I heard she was in the house… so I knew I had to get the ball to Travis,” Mahomes told Fox Sports and Andrews.
Swift, a football enthusiast who supports the Philadelphia Eagles, her home state’s team, might be considering adopting a second NFL team to cheer for, given the speculation about her relationship with Travis Kelce. During the Chiefs’ recent victory, cameras captured her enthusiastically shouting, “Let’s go!” when Kelce scored a touchdown in the third quarter. Later, the pair left the venue together for dinner.
While primarily known for her musical talents, Swift has also garnered attention in the past for dating notable figures like Harry Styles, Joe Jonas, and Taylor Lautner. Kelce might just be the latest addition to her roster of celebrity relationships.
