Broncos push Chiefs’ Travis Kelce-Taylor Swift into high gear after stunning win

The Broncos continued to battle against the Chiefs, ending a 16-game losing streak against their AFC West rival, and they made sure to celebrate in style.

Taylor Swift was not present at love interest Travis Kelce’s game on Sunday, and Empower Field at Mile High played the singer’s song “Shake It Off” over the speakers for fans after Denver’s 24-9 win.

Multiple videos from the stadium captured the scene as players shook hands and fireworks went off behind the scoreboard. The venue’s music selection mirrored Globe Life Field on Friday as Kelce attended Game 1 of the World Series and danced to the song.

Swift, who has attended four of the Chiefs’ last five games and seen four wins, was not expected to make the trip to Denver as she prepares to continue her “Eras Tour” on Nov. 9 in Buenos Aires, Argentina , prepared.

She had previously attended Kelce’s games against the Chargers, Broncos, Jets and Bears, and the 34-year-old tight end caught 34 passes for an average of 108 yards per game in those four wins.

Kelce’s stat line from Sunday’s loss — six catches for 58 yards — only reinforced last weekend’s CBS graphic that shows the connection between his best performances in 2023 and Swift’s presence.

“How could I not know?” Kelce joked with his brother and Eagles center Jason on their weekly “New Heights” podcast episode.

The Kelce-Swift relationship, which has become one of the NFL’s most popular storylines in its first eight weeks, included other recent developments such as Swift’s handshake with Patrick Mahomes’ wife Brittany, as well as a report from Entertainment Tonight that revealed that Kelce has plans to travel internationally for her tour – that could include the Nov. 9 show, as that coincides with the bye week in Kansas City.

The Chiefs will travel to Germany next weekend to face the Dolphins ahead of that bye, and they’ll be looking to avoid consecutive losses for the first time since Weeks 2 and 3 in 2021.

During Sunday’s games against the Broncos, Kansas City’s offense struggled to find a rhythm, although The Athletic reported that Mahomes received IV treatment for an illness before the game.

The Chiefs didn’t score a touchdown – or score at all in the second half – and fell to 6-2 on the season, while Russell Wilson threw for 114 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Broncos to their third win.
