Diehard football fans watching Sunday’s Jets-Chiefs game were frustrated by the fanfare surrounding Taylor Swift and her new boyfriend Travis Kelce.
While NBC broadcast ratings got a huge boost from Swift’s presence in the stands at MetLife Stadium, it was a constant source of frustration for those tuning in to watch Kansas City dominate against New York.
Football fans took to social media in droves to share their thoughts, with one writing: ‘Please don’t play Taylor Swift on your TV drinking game… you’re going to be hospitalized if you aren’t already.’
Another added, “These Taylor Swift cutaways during Chiefs games need to go.”
While much of the build-up surrounded the pop sensation’s potential in the stadium, the most furious reaction came after the Chiefs’ first touchdown, when the cameras immediately cut to Taylor and her famous friends in their suite.

Taylor Swift was frequently seen in news coverage watching her boyfriend Travis Kelce
Some fans had purely watched the football, and not the fuss surrounding it
Many felt that the players should have been shown immediately after the first touchdown
Since it was Isiah Pacheco who scored the points instead of Kelce, some fans were left outraged, claiming they should have shown the players cheering on the field instead.
Sunday night’s Jets-Chiefs game was the second in a week that Swift has dominated, after showing up at Arrowhead last Sunday to watch her husband score a touchdown in the Bears’ 41-10 rout.
In the days since, there has been a huge amount of online chatter about their relationship, reaching a fever pitch on Sunday when she showed up again to watch him play.
It’s also rumored that they spent the night together on Saturday, after Kelce was spotted returning to his hotel in Weehawken on Sunday morning.
It’s not clear exactly when Travis and Taylor started seeing each other, but Travis had revealed on his New Heights podcast in July that he had hoped to introduce himself to Taylor when he attended one of her Eras Tour stops.
“I wanted to give Taylor Swift (a bracelet) with my number on it,” the tight end shared, but he found that the singer’s dedication to putting on the best performance possible made it impossible to talk to her.
‘I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs she sings, so I was a bit of a pain in the ass. I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets. I made it for her,” he said.
During the latest episode of Travis’ podcast, he addressed the dating rumors.
While speaking with his brother and co-host Jason Kelce, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, he shouted at Swift and said she “looked great.”

“Shout out to Taylor for quitting,” he said. ‘That was quite rowdy.

‘Plus, the day went perfectly for Chiefs fans. We script it all, ladies and gentlemen. It was just impressive.
