Taylor Swift was spotted at the MetLife stadium on Sunday Night Football, cheering on her new beau Travis Kelce as he played for the Kansas City Chiefs against the New York Jets. Kelce had a relatively quiet night with six catches for 60 yards and no touchdowns. The pop star arrived about 40 minutes prior to kickoff with friends Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, and Blake Lively. This is the second consecutive Chiefs game she has attended, having previously traveled to Kansas City to see the team beat the Bears at home with Kelce’s mom, Donna. Despite blowing a 17-point lead, the Chiefs managed to secure a 23-20 victory against the Jets with an interception and a fumble recovery.

While watching from the stands with famous friends Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Swift showed enthusiastic support for Kelce – her latest love interest.
Despite blowing a 17-0 lead, the Chiefs managed to secure a win against the Jets, even with Patrick Mahomes throwing two interceptions. Michael Carter II intercepted Mahomes on third-and-20, but it was nullified by a debatable holding call on Sauce Gardner. Jets coach Robert Saleh became livid and shouted at an official after the call. Mahomes sealed the victory by running for 11 yards on a third down to the Jets’ 2. A still-fuming Saleh received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, and the clock ran out on the Jets’ bitter loss. Mahomes became the fastest player in NFL history to reach 200 touchdown passes, finishing the game 18 of 30 with 203 yards, one touchdown pass, and 51 rushing yards. Wilson had an excellent game, going 28 of 39 for 245 yards and two touchdowns. After trailing 20-12, Wilson led the Jets to tie the game at 20 with a touchdown pass to Allen Lazard and a 2-point conversion. The Jets’ offense gained momentum, but the team could not take the lead. Pacheco gave the Chiefs a 10-0 lead with his 48-yard touchdown run. Mahomes broke Dan Marino’s record for the fastest player to reach 200 touchdown passes, achieving the feat in 84 games. Marino achieved his milestone in 89 games in 1989. The Jets scored their first points when Jawaan Taylor was called for a facemask penalty on Bryce Huff in the end zone, resulting in a safety. Wilson rallied the team, and Zuerlein kicked a 31-yard field goal to make the score 17-5. Ashtyn Davis intercepted Mahomes’ throw to Gray, setting up a touchdown pass to C.J. Uzomah. Butker’s 37-yard field goal made it 20-12, and the Jets missed a 52-yard field goal attempt to end the first half.
