At least according to the chief tight. On the latest episode of the “New Heights” podcast, which featured Kelce and his brother, Eagles center Jason Kelce, Jason wondered aloud if maybe there was too much focus on what was going on between them. Travis didn’t deny it. “I think everyone is just crazy — I think it’s fun when they show who everyone is in the game. But at the same time, I think they’re overdoing it, especially in my situation (reported romance with Taylor Swift).”

There’s no such thing as bad publicity, and the NFL, Kelce and Swift benefited from the latest celebrity power couple. Kelce has amassed a large following on Instagram, while the NFL has come under fire for possibly playing the favorite of the Chiefs and Swifties everywhere.
However, it’s too hard to fault it for trying to target a previously underserved population. The Chiefs’ win against the Bruins was the number one television audience among women 18-49, which seems to be a rarity in a male-dominated sport. Sunday night’s NBC broadcast hit Swift and friends in her luxury box about 17 times during the game, seemingly taking the spotlight away from the outdoor product.
The game turned out to be a very entertaining matchup between the two teams, resulting in a Jets 23-20 KC win.
