Travis Kelce’s touchdown celebration during Sunday’s divisional-round matchup against the Bills was a touching tribute.
The star tight end connected with Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes for a 22-yard touchdown in the first half. He expressed his joy by making a heart with his hands. His heartfelt gesture was dedicated to his girlfriend, Taylor Swift, who was watching from a suite at Highmark Stadium along with Kelce’s family.
Swift, who has been in a relationship with Kelce since the summer, is known for making the same hand gesture during her Eras Tour performances. This was Swift’s second playoff appearance in support of Kelce. The moment was even more special as Kelce scored his first touchdown reception since Nov. 20. Notably, it was the 15th time he and Mahomes connected for a postseason touchdown.

Kelce didn’t stop at one touchdown. He added a second in the third quarter, surpassing Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady’s playoff record in the process.
Jason Kelce, who has been surrounded by retirement rumors, was also present in Buffalo with his wife, Kylie. Travis’ older brother couldn’t contain his excitement during the first-half touchdown celebration, losing his shirt in the process.
