In a brief hiatus from promoting her blockbuster movie, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” pop sensation Taylor Swift graced Arrowhead Stadium with her presence to witness Travis Kelce’s standout performance as the Kansas City Chiefs triumphed over the Denver Broncos with a final score of 19-8.

The Kansas City Chiefs now boast a 5-1 record for the season, with an undefeated 3-0 streak whenever the pop superstar graces the stadium with her attendance.
Swift enjoyed the game from the comforts of a luxury suite, sitting alongside Kelce’s mother, Donna Kelce, sporting a black tank top under a red Chiefs jacket from the collection of renowned sportscaster Erin Andrews. The Windbreaker from the Wear Women’s line Swift wore quickly sold out following her appearance.
During the game, Kelce showcased his prowess, securing 124 receiving yards, marking a personal season-high achievement. This stellar performance came merely four days after he left the field with an injury in Minneapolis, raising questions about his participation in this game.
Kelce also demonstrated a touch of showmanship by making an unexpected lateral pass to fellow tight end Noah after catching a 5-yard pass from Patrick Mahomes, which led to a Chiefs field goal.
This wasn’t Swift’s first visit to Arrowhead Stadium; she had previously graced the venue on September 24 when the Chiefs hosted the Chicago Bears, and on October 1 for a “Sunday Night Football” game against the New York Jets in New Jersey, which introduced many Swifties to the world of football.
Notably, Swift had performed at Arrowhead on July 7-8, delivering two sensational concerts in Missouri. Kelce attended one of these shows but infamously failed to gift Swift a friendship bracelet, unlike his Thursday night game when Swift was the one cheering him on.
After Mahomes connected with Kelce for a 19-yard pass, which set up the Chiefs’ first touchdown, Swift rose to her feet, cheered, and warmly embraced Brittany Mahomes, the quarterback’s wife.
Surprise!! 1989 (Taylor’s Version) is on its way to you 🔜!

In a post-game interview with Amazon Prime Video, Patrick Mahomes wasn’t asked about Kelce and Swift, but analyst and former Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez added a touch of humor by presenting the quarterback with a Swift-inspired friendship bracelet featuring the moniker “TrayTay,” drawing playful groans from the panel.
Despite longstanding rumors about Swift and Kelce’s relationship, their official status remains shrouded in mystery. Even Donna Kelce, mother to both Travis Kelce and Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, refrains from disclosing or perhaps not knowing the details of their connection, stating, “I honestly can’t tell you. It’s just too new,” during an interview on NBC’s “TODAY” show.
Meanwhile, Swift’s movie, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” is setting records as it progresses toward becoming the highest-grossing concert film in box office history. Her recent appearance in Los Angeles for the movie premiere included a surprise visit from fellow music royalty, Beyoncé.
Swift’s presence in Kansas City is poised to be a significant boost for “Thursday Night Football” and its broadcasting platform, Amazon Prime Video, giving Swifties an opportunity to witness the “You Belong With Me” singer in both concert and football settings.
