Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Las Vegas Raiders sparked more than just intense on-field action, especially for Travis Kelce, the Chiefs’ star tight end. During the third quarter, a tense play led to Kelce pushing Raiders’ defensive players Amik Robertson and Jerry Tillery, stirring a buzz among Swifties—Taylor Swift’s dedicated fanbase—who were keenly watching the game.
Reacting to Kelce’s heated moment, fans expressed enthusiasm for the tight end’s fervor. “Oh my, Travis Kelce can fight,” shared the Daily Taylor Swift account on X, while another fan quipped, “Is it hot in here? Is anyone else warm?”
However, Kelce’s impact extended beyond the on-field skirmish as he made history during the game. The Chiefs emerged victorious, winning 31-17, and Kelce achieved a remarkable feat in the NFL, setting a new record for 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 Gonzalez, who previously held the record in 191 games. While Gonzalez retains the overall yards record (15,127), former Dallas Cowboys star Jason Witten stands at No. 2 (13,036), and ex-San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers star Antonio Gates holds third place (11,841).
Celebrating Kelce’s achievement, the Kansas City Chiefs shared on Instagram: “Fastest tight end to 11k receiving yards AND the only player in franchise history to do it 🏹.” Swift, known for supporting her beau, liked the celebratory post, marking yet another instance of her endorsing Kelce’s accomplishments this season.
The relationship between Swift and Kelce has gained attention since the singer attended one of Kelce’s games in September. Swift has been spotted at multiple games, cheering for the two-time Super Bowl winner alongside Kelce’s friends and family.
Kelce’s recent milestone arrives as the couple manages their time together amidst busy professional schedules. While Kelce continues with his NFL commitments, Swift concluded the South American leg of her Eras Tour on Sunday. With a break until February before her tour resumes in Japan, Swift’s supportive presence in Kelce’s games remains unwavering.
