Taylor Swift’s enchantment seems to have taken hold of Travis Kelce, the Kansas City Chiefs’ star player.
In recent games, Patrick Mahomes’ go-to receiver has showcased a resurgence that has captivated fans everywhere, except perhaps those loyal to the Justin Herbert-led Los Angeles Chargers and the Denver Broncos.
The face-off between the Chargers and Chiefs in Week 7 has been nothing short of a high-scoring spectacle.
Justin Herbert has admirably responded to the offensive onslaught delivered by Patrick Mahomes. However, it’s Travis Kelce who stands as the undeniable x-factor in this electrifying matchup.
Kelce managed to achieve an impressive milestone, amassing 100 receiving yards in the first half in both games against the Chargers and Broncos.
Remarkably, he is the first tight end to achieve this feat since at least the year 2000, and remarkably, the first player in any position to accomplish such a feat, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
As things stand, Kelce boasts an impressive stat line of nine receptions and 143 receiving yards, with an average yardage per catch of 15.9.
The crowning achievement was the touchdown he scored against a formidable Chargers’ secondary.
His first-half performance in this game has already surpassed his remarkable showing against the Broncos.
In the Broncos matchup, Kelce managed to secure nine receptions for 124 receiving yards but fell short of scoring a touchdown.
In contrast, the Chiefs’ coach, Andy Reid, appears to be fully leaning into the strategy of feeding his tight end in this high-stakes encounter.
The team’s meager 12 rushing yards in this game underscore just how efficiently Kelce is utilizing his hands and speed, rendering the rushing aspect of the offense almost superfluous.
It’s clear that Taylor Swift’s influence on Kelce has worked wonders for the Chiefs, and his impact on this game is nothing short of historic.
