The Sunday night matchup between the New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs at MetLife Stadium attracted a diverse crowd. Amongst the sea of jerseys, there were fans who had a different motive for attending the game – catching a glimpse of the renowned pop artist, Taylor Swift. OutKick’s Caity McDuffee took the opportunity to interview some of these Swift fans before the game. While sporting Jets gear with Chiefs hats, it became clear that these individuals were there solely for Swift and not the game itself. McDuffee decided to test the Swifties’ knowledge about the NFL, but unsurprisingly, their expertise lay more in the history of the beloved star rather than football trivia. However, there were some fans who surprised her with their ability to complete the lyrics of Swift’s most iconic songs.
Meanwhile, as the sun began to set, Swift herself made her grand entrance at MetLife Stadium, accompanied by a few of her celebrity companions. Among them were Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, and others. Dating rumors swirled around Swift and Chiefs’ player Kelce, and the speculation heightened when she appeared at Arrowhead Stadium with Kelce’s mother, Donna, just last week. Adding fuel to the fire, Swift and Kelce were seen leaving together in one of his classic cars, fueling talk in the NFL world for the entire week. Despite the speculation, Swift has remained silent about their alleged relationship.
On Saturday night, Kelce was reportedly spotted at Swift’s home in New York City before returning to the team hotel. In light of the attention surrounding him, Kelce expressed his desire to keep his personal life as private as possible. He hopes to navigate this situation with discretion and protect that aspect of his life from public scrutiny.
