Taylor Swift was on hand at Arrowhead Stadium Sunday to support boyfriend Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs as they took on the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. However, her presence couldn’t stop the Bills from eking out a 24-20 victory to end the Chiefs’ Super Bowl defense.
Swift Arrives in Style to Cheer on Kelce
The pop superstar touched down in Kansas City Saturday ahead of the contest, already dressed for gameday in a vintage Chiefs sweatshirt. Swift has attended several Chiefs games this season to cheer on All-Pro tight end Kelce, her rumored beau since this summer.
Sunday morning, Swift arrived at Arrowhead looking gameday chic in a Chiefs jacket and signature red lip as she prepared to watch Kelce battle his AFC rival Josh Allen and the Bills.
Her appearance sent fans into a frenzy, with many hoping she would bring good luck to the Chiefs as they sought revenge for last year’s epic playoff loss to Buffalo.

Chiefs Keep It Close, But Bills Edge Out Victory
The Chiefs kept the game tight throughout, with Kelce hauling in 7 catches for 77 yards and a touchdown as KC’s offense moved the ball well. But the Bills had just enough answers offensively behind Allen’s 329-yard, 4-TD performance.
Buffalo took a 24-20 lead with just over a minute left, and Patrick Mahomes drove KC into field goal range looking to tie. But kicker Harrison Butker’s attempt was blocked as time expired, sending the Chiefs home as the Bills advanced to the AFC Championship.
“She was right there when Butker lined up for the game-tying kick,” an insider shared. “She really thought they had it for a second. Travis was obviously devastated, and she did her best to console him after the loss.”
Swift and Kelce Share Tender Moment Leaving Stadium
After the disappointing finish, cameras captured Swift and Kelce exiting the stadium hand-in-hand, the pop star lending comfort to her crestfallen boyfriend. Even in defeat, Swift wanted to let Kelce know she was proud of his outstanding season.
“Travis always appreciates Taylor being there to support him, win or lose,” a friend of the couple noted. “They lean on each other so much, and Travis knows she’ll help lift his spirits up over the next few weeks.”
For now, Kelce and the Chiefs will regroup and look ahead to 2023, hoping next season brings another shot at the Lombardi Trophy. And you can bet Swift will be back at Arrowhead Stadium cheering her man on every step of the way.
Romo’s Wife Slip-Up Adds Levity to Tough Loss
In a lighthearted moment during CBS’s broadcast, analyst Tony Romo accidentally referred to Swift as Kelce’s wife. Romo quickly corrected himself, but not before the internet exploded in reaction to his harmless flub.
His broadcast partner Jim Nantz helped him recover by joking, “I think Patrick Mahomes’ wife Brittany might have something to say about that, Tony!”
Fans online had fun with Romo’s stumble as well:
“Travis Kelce’s wife Taylor Swift is in the audience,” one amused tweeter wrote. Others joked they were ready to congratulate the couple on their “secret wedding.”
While certainly not legally wed, Swift and Kelce have gotten quite serious recently. And if their sweet moments after the game were any indication, Swift will remain firmly in Kelce’s corner in good times and bad.
What’s Next for the New “It” Couple?
As Kelce enters the offseason after falling just short of the Super Bowl, rumors will continue swirling about his future with Swift. Many fans speculate the stars may take their relationship to the next level soon with an engagement announcement.
“Taylor sees so much of what she wants in a lifelong partner in Travis – they just connect on so many levels,” an insider said.
While Swift still has a packed 2023 touring schedule ahead, she’s expected to appear at several Chiefs games again next fall to cheer on her number one fan favorite.
“She and Travis just feel right together,” the source added. “I’d be surprised if wedding bells aren’t in their future.”
First comes healing from the playoff disappointment, then Kelce and Swift can continue building their budding romance. Chiefs Kingdom surely hopes Swift’s support system leads to even more epic Travis Kelce performances next season.
