The stadium was buzzing with excitement as the Kansas City Chiefs prepared to face off the Bears, on September 24th. But it wasn’t simply the game that got people psyched.
Whispers spread like flame through the stands, fueled by a recent set of occurrences involving two high-profile individuals, Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce. The reported romance’s media circus threatened to overshadow the game itself at Arrowhead stadium.
Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes weighs in on the unlikely romance
As the crowd settled in, their gazes bounced between the field and the VIP boxes above. Rumors swirled about a probable relationship between the pop sensation and the famous tight end. Yet, in the midst of all the speculation, Patrick Mahomes the Chiefs’ star quarterback and Kelce’s best friend, sustained his silence.
Mahomes, known for his laid-back demeanor, had always been a rock for Kelce, both on and off the field. Their friendship shared an unyielding bond. Initially, as the attention moved to Kelce’s unexpected connection with Swift, Mahomes didn’t feel the need to make any further comments about the romance except for acknowledging Taylor Swift’s appearance.
However, in a post-game interview with the page Six, Mahomes did convey about feeling “pressure”. With Taylor Swift watching their game from the Kansas City Chiefs tight end’s box, Patrick Mahomes acknowledged to feeling “pressure” to get Travis Kelce the ball, so he leaves an impression. He stated, “He does his own thing and just makes up a route and I throw it to him. I think he wanted to get in the end zone as much as all the “Swifties” wanted him to.”
“I heard that she was in the house,” Mahomes, quipped in a post-game interview Sunday night, “I felt a little pressure.”
Taylor Swift set to grace Chiefs’ Sunday Night Football game
After all the chaos in Week 3, Taylor Swift is said to grace Chiefs’ game this Sunday Night, according to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports.
Due to the nation’s heightened interest in catching a glimpse of Taylor Swift, the game in question drew the most viewers in the league that week, notably among female viewers in three key demographics. Thus, there is a chance that the subsequent solitary game in Week 4 will generate even higher numbers with the star’s appearance.
Fans could prepare for a one-of-a-kind extravaganza on Sunday Night Football, as the stage is set for a primetime battle. With the game due to be broadcast on NBC, enthusiasm is powerful, spurred by the possibility of seeing none other than Taylor Swift herself.
