The Kansas City Chiefs recorded a 41-10 victory over the Chicago Bears when superstar tight end Travis Kelce notched a three-yard touchdown to his new girlfriend Taylor Swift.
Swift was seen sitting in a suite next to Kelce’s mother Donna, while also wearing Chiefs colors.
Kelce’s touchdown grab came early in the second half when Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes found him in the back of the end zone for an easy score, pushing the lead to 41-0.
After landing, cameras panned to the suite and Swift appeared to mouth the words “let’s go” as she celebrated.
Kelce would ultimately lead the Chiefs in receiving after finishing the game with seven catches for 69 yards and the TD grab.

The eight-time Pro Bowler was likely determined to put on the best show he could after revealing to ESPN’s Pat McAfee that he invited Swift to this week’s game.
“I told her I saw her rocking a stage in Arrowhead and maybe she should come see me rocking a stage in Arrowhead,” Kelce said. “We’ll see what happens in the near future.”
Kelce had previously shared on his “New Heights” podcast — which he hosts with his brother, Jason Kelce, at the Philadelphia Eagles center — that he was upset about his opportunity to give Swift a friendship bracelet — along with his phone number — hit the boards during her Kansas City stop of the Eras Tour.
After the game, Kelce recorded a video praising his head coach Andy Reid for moving past legendary former Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry for sole possession of fourth place on the all-time wins list.
“Get ready man, we gotta get Coach Reid to No. 1,” Kelce said in a video post on the NFL’s X account.
‘He’s just reached four, we have to get him to number 1. But in the meantime, we’ll keep getting these dubs, baby. Chiefs Kingdom is getting loud baby.”

Reid also wasn’t the only member of the Chiefs to write his name into the NFL history books in front of the 12-time Grammy award-winning Swift. Mahomes rushed for more than 25,000 yards for his career. He did it in 83 games, the fastest in NFL history.
Mahomes also recorded his 22nd game with three TD passes and no interceptions, tying Aaron Rodgers for the most by a QB before he turned 30. The Chiefs signal caller turned 28 last Sunday.
Kelce himself also moved closer to record status, as he needs just three more TD catches to pass Tony Gonzalez (76) for second place in Chiefs history.
There’s no word on whether his new No. 1 fan will be in attendance when he ultimately breaks the Chiefs record.
Mahomes was also asked about Swift’s presence by FOX reporter Ein Andrews after the game ended.
“Do you realize how much pressure was put on you by the Swifties to give Travis Kelce a touchdown with Taylor in the house today?” she asked during the brief interview.
“I heard she was in the house…I felt a little bit of pressure and so I knew I had to take it to Trav,” Mahomes said.
“And obviously it was on a route where he’s doing his own thing and just making up a route, and I threw it to him. So ujhh, I guess he wanted to get in the end zone as much as all the Swifites wanted to.”
