Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Las Vegas Raiders brought about more than just intense action on the field, especially for Travis Kelce, the Chiefs’ star tight end. During the third quarter, a tense play led to Kelce shoving Raiders defensive players Amik Robertson and Jerry Tillery, creating a stir among Swifties, Taylor Swift’s dedicated fan base, who were closely watching the game.
Reacting to Kelce’s heated moment, fans expressed enthusiasm for the tight end’s fervor. “Oh, Travis Kelce can fight,” the Daily account Taylor Swift shared on X, while another fan joked: “Is it hot in here? Is anyone else hot?
However, Kelce’s impact extended beyond the on-field skirmish and he made history during the game. The Chiefs emerged victorious, winning 31-17, and Kelce accomplished a notable feat in the NFL, setting a new record by reaching 11,000 receiving yards in the fewest games as a tight end (154), as reported by NFL.com.
This milestone places Kelce in an elite group, joining Hall of Famer Tony González, who previously held the record at 191 games. While Gonzalez holds the overall yardage record (15,127), former Dallas Cowboys star Jason Witten is second (13,036), and former San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers star Antonio Gates is second. third place (11,841).
Celebrating Kelce’s achievement, the Kansas City Chiefs shared on Instagram: “Fastest tight end to 11,000 receiving yards AND the only player in franchise history to do so 🏹.” Swift, known for supporting her boyfriend, liked the celebratory post, marking yet another instance of her supporting Kelce’s accomplishments this season.
Swift and Kelce’s relationship has drawn attention since the singer attended one of Kelce’s games in September. Swift has been seen at several games, cheering on the two-time Super Bowl winner alongside Kelce’s friends and family.
Kelce’s recent milestone comes as the couple manages their time together amid busy professional schedules. While Kelce continues with her NFL commitments, Swift wrapped up the South American leg of her Eras Tour on Sunday. With a break until February before she resumes her tour in Japan, Swift’s supporting presence at Kelce’s sets remains unwavering.
