As popular as Travis Kelce, Patrick Mahomes, and the Kansas City Chiefs are right now, they’re not more popular than Taylor Swift.
That’s why her presence at Arrowhead Stadium was the biggest piece of news of the whole NFL slate, especially considering the fact that she was there to root for Kelce, her boyfriend.
With that in mind, NFL journalist Erin Andrews asked Mahomes whether he felt pressure to get the ball to Kelce in the endzone so he could score a touchdown in front of his better half, to which the quarterback laughingly agreed (via Awful Announcing).

He talked about knowing how much pressure the Swifties had on him, but he managed to get the job done.
Notably, Kelce couldn’t have chosen a better game to bring his girlfriend along, as the Chiefs had an absolute field day against the Chicago Bears.
The offense hit the ground running right away, up to the point where they were up 41-0 before the Chiefs got ten points late in the fourth quarter.
Swift had plenty of chances to celebrate, as Kelce grabbed seven receptions on eight targets for 69 yards and one touchdown, averaging 9.9 yards per catch.
The Chiefs are now 2-1 and sit atop the AFC West again, and they have another somewhat winnable game on deck.
Andy Reid’s team will travel to the Big Apple for a date with the New York Jets on Sunday Night Football, and that’ll give Swift another chance to watch Kelce do what he does best: Score touchdowns.
