Travis Kelce will likely be watching a lot more eyes on Sunday as he plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, after a whirlwind week in which romantic ties with Taylor Swift have seen his fame soar.
Kelce was pictured arriving for the Chiefs’ game against the Chicago Bears at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, wearing an oddly matching blue and white jacket and pants.
The Chiefs tweeted a photo and video of their arrival and wave as fans cheered him on, but several supporters on social media joked that his outfit made him look like he was painting at home before the game.
But what Taylor Swift does or doesn’t think is a completely different question. Kelce, who won the Super Bowl with the Chiefs last year (and again in 2019), said this week that he wanted the pop star to come see him play in Kansas.
Swift apparently took her up on the offer, as the Chiefs play at home on Sunday and she is currently not on tour.

Kelce broke his silence about his ties to Swift earlier this week during an appearance on the Pat McAfee show, telling people not to listen to his brother Jason, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, when asked about his dating life.
“It’s hilarious how much traction this actually has,” he revealed live the Pat McAfee Show. “I think right now it’s like that old school game, ‘Telephones,’ where everyone just whispers in each other’s ears and hears some random things…no one really knows what’s going on.
“Especially when Jason Kelce is on national television telling both sides… he doesn’t know, it’s true, it’s this and that. He goes on Thursday Night Football and the first thing he brings up is “Catching Kelce,” and less than a week later he tells everyone it’s 100 percent true.
‘That man is ridiculous, he can’t stay out of the headlines. He was on the show yesterday and said everyone thinks he’s the Ian Rapoport of my dating relationships… everyone, please stop asking my brother about my love life.”
Then it was Kelce’s turn to reveal the news from the horse’s mouth, as he revealed that he had spoken to the pop star – and given her a very tempting invitation.
“It’s life, honey,” he continued. “I threw it over there, I threw the ball into her court.
“I said, ‘I’ve seen you rock the stage at Arrowhead, maybe you should come see me rock the stage at Arrowhead to see which one is a little more lit.’
‘We’ll see what happens in the near future. Okay, nuwwww.”

The news was received with loud cheers from the panel of McAfee’s show, as the team wished him luck in his search for music’s most famous face.
Until Thursday afternoon, all news about the possible romance between two-time Super Bowl winner Kelce, 33, and pop sensation Swift, also 33, were rumors spread in the media or by his brother Jason.
