Taylor Swift Had an NSFW Reaction to Rumored BF Travis Kelce's Touchdown

The singer watched the Chiefs play the Bears in a box with the NFL player's mom.

While football lovers were taking in the action on the field on Sunday, pop culture fanatics were focused on something else: Taylor Swift accepting rumored boyfriend Travis Kelce's invitation to watch him play with the Kansas City Chiefs. As was evidenced multiple times on the broadcast of the Chiefs' game against the Chicago Bears, the 33-year-old pop star was seated in a box next to Travis' mother at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. Swift made her debut as a Chiefs fan amid rumors that she and the tight end are dating—rumors which have been fanned by Travis himself, as well as his brother, fellow NFL player Jason Kelce.

During the game, Swift was actively rooting for the Chiefs and Travis, and when he scored a touchdown, the singer seemingly let out a NSFW cheer. Read on to see Swift at the game and to learn more about this rumored romance.

Travis made his interest in Swift known.

Rumors about Swift and Travis' romance took off a couple of weeks ago. On Sept. 12, The Messenger reported source saying that "Taylor and Travis have been quietly hanging out." They added, "She saw him when she was in NYC a few weeks ago."

In July, Travis revealed that he was interested in Swift on the podcast he co-hosts with his brother, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce. On the episode, Travis explained that he wanted to give the "Anti-Hero" singer his number via a friendship bracelet. (Fans at Swift's ongoing Eras Tour trade homemade bracelets that often feature titles of her songs and other references.)

"I was disappointed that she doesn't talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings," Travis said on the podcast (via People). He said that he was "a little butthurt" that he "didn't get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her." He added, "If you're up on Taylor Swift concerts, there are friendship bracelets, and I received a bunch of them being there, but I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it."

Jason was coy about the gossip.

In a Sept. 20 interview, Jason, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, was asked whether his brother and Swift were dating during an interview with the 94WIP Morning Show. He sarcastically replied that the rumors were "100 percent true."

"It's hard to answer because I don't really know a lot about what's happening in Travis' love life, and I try to keep his business kind of his business, and stay out of that world. But having said that, man, I think he's doing great and I think it's all 100 percent true." As reported by E! News, he added, "No, I'm joking, I don't know what's happening."

According to People, during a Sept. 21 appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Travis was asked about Swift. While the 33-year-old athlete didn't reveal whether he had met her in person by that point, he shared that he had invited her to a game.

He said that he told her, "I've seen you rock the stage at Arrowhead [Stadium]. You might have to come see me rock the stage at Arrowhead and see which one's a little more lit … We'll see what happens in the near future."

Swift attended the game and cheered hard for Travis.

The "near future" Travis mentioned came quickly, because Swift attended the Chiefs game on Sunday, Sept. 24. As reported by CNN, Swift was caught on camera in the Kelce family suite, talking to the players' mother, Donna Kelce. She also wore a red and white Chiefs jacket.

At one point, Travis scored a touchdown, and Swift's reaction was recorded for the broadcast. In a clip published to the NFL's X (formerly Twitter) account, Swift can be seen jumping up and down, clapping, and screaming what appears to be, "Let's [expletive] go!"

The Chiefs beat the Bears, 41 to 10.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was asked about Swift being in attendance during a post-game interview with Fox Sports. "I heard she was in the house… so I knew I had to get [the ball] to Travis," he said. "I think he wanted to get in the end zone just as much as all the Swifties wanted him to."

They left the game together.

Swift and Travis' football Sunday extended beyond the game. As reported by Today, sports anchor Jarrett Payton recorded a video of the player and singer leaving the stadium together. In the clip, Payton says hi and Swift responds, "Hey, how's it going?" as she and Travis keep walking. Today also noted that a fan posted photos of the rumored couple driving in a convertible after the game to Facebook.
