Although quarterback Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs has experienced the pressure of competing in the Super Bowl, he had a considerably more devoted fan base watching him on Sunday.
After Kansas City's convincing 41-10 victory over the Chicago Bears, the Chiefs quarterback made light of the fact that Taylor Swift was in the Arrowhead stadium and put pressure on him to get the ball to Travis Kelce.
Mahomes said to Fox Sports' Erin Andrews, "I heard she was in the house," following the game. I knew I had to get it to Trav because I felt a little bit of pressure.
With a third-quarter touchdown pass to the star tight end in the back of the end zone, Mahomes gave the Chiefs a 41-0 lead.
Following reports that Kelce and Swift had been "quietly hanging out," rumors about the couple began to circulate and intensified this week.
A guest spot on "The Pat McAfee Show" further fueled the flames.
Kelce declared, "I put the ball in her court." I remarked, 'I've seen you rock the stage in Arrowhead [Stadium]
you might have to come see me rock the stage in Arrowhead and see which one is a little more illuminated. So, let's wait and see what occurs in the near future. Now all right.
