Taylor Swift Arrives At Chiefs-Broncos: Taylor Swift has traveled back to Kansas City for the Chiefs’ NFL game against the Denver Broncos, one day after the premiere of her “Eras Tour” film Wednesday night in Los Angeles.
Since Swift was first rumored to be dating Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, Swift has now appeared at three of tight end’s last four games — giving the NFL a major boost in ratings and sparking a media craze, with color commentators even weighing in on the trend during the game.

Thursday Night Football was initially low-key about Swift’s arrival during the pregame, noting that the musician had arrived “in the building” without showing her on the broadcast. A few minutes later, the Prime Video broadcast showed a brief clip of her settling down in the suite. A pre-taped interview of Kelce followed, with the tight end touching on his relationship with Swift.
