Taylor Swift Celebrates as Travis Kelce and the Chiefs Win to Continue in the Playoffs

After the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Miami Dolphins 26-7 on Saturday night to progress in the NFL Playoffs, Taylor Swift rejoiced.

The Chiefs won thanks to seven catches from 34-year-old Kelce for 71 yards.

With just a few minutes remaining in the game, Swift came into sight as she was sat between Donna Kelce and Brittany Mahomes, joyfully singing along with other Chiefs supporters.

The Chiefs’ victory guarantees their advancement to the divisional round of the playoffs the following weekend. By winning both games the next week in the AFC Championship round and the game the week after, Kelce and his Kansas City teammates can advance to the Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl will happen in Las Vegas on Sunday, February 11.

The Chiefs are predicted by the Kansas City Star newspaper to have a 70% probability of winning the Super Bowl. The Chiefs, who won the title twice in 2020 and 2023, would be making their fourth trip to the championship game in the previous five years.

While developing a romantic relationship with Swift, 34, Kelce assisted the Chiefs in winning the AFC West division for the eighth time in a row and making it to the playoffs nine times in a row.

Throughout the season, the “Love Story” singer often went to Chiefs games and sat in a fancy box with Kelce’s parents and the family of other players.

According to a person close to the Kelce family, “Donna thinks Taylor’s extremely kind and down to earth,” and she loves her.” The Wall Street Journal then heard from Kelce’s mother, who was listed as one of PEOPLE’s 25 Most Interesting People of the Year, saying her son has been “happier than I’ve seen him in a long time.”

Kelce concluded the regular season with 93 catches for a team-high 984 yards and five scores, with Swift often encouraging him. With 121 passes to tight end Kelce, more than any other receiver on the squad, quarterback Patrick Mahomes also seemed to have the most amount of faith in the receiver.

Kelce has at least 1,000 receiving yards in each of his past seven seasons and Mahomes, 28, said he hoped to send the ball to Kelce enough times in the Chiefs’ season finale to earn him an eighth-straight season with 1,000 yards or more receiving.

However, Kelce skipped the game this past weekend and subsequently admitted to his brother Jason Kelce on the most recent edition of their podcast, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, that he wasn’t interested in playing the game in order to set a record of 1,000 receiving yards.

“I felt like I shouldn’t be playing the game that way [by the numbers] and it didn’t feel right in my gut,” he said. “Hopefully, I can get some rest for next week, avoid getting hit, and stay off the turf in Los Angeles.”  To prepare for the playoffs, I wholeheartedly supported it.

Andy Reid, the head coach of the Chiefs, had said that Kelce was a “humble, humble guy” who didn’t want to “come across as selfish.”
