With Taylor Swift watching on again at Arrowhead Field, Travis Kelce had his best performance of the season thus far – and Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is more than happy for the pop star to stick around.
As Kansas City beat the Chargers 31-17, Kelce tallied 12 catches for a jaw-dropping 179 receiving yards and a touchdown.
And Swift, who was seen with Brittany Mahomes during the game, is welcome in Missouri any time.
‘Kelce keeps getting better with time, Taylor can stay around all she wants,’ Reid said after the game.
During Kelce’s tremendous performance, CBS broke out a hilarious graphic showing that he performs better with Swift in attendance.
The graphic, which was titled ‘You belong with TE’ in reference to the pop star’s 2008 hit ‘You Belong With Me’ and the NFL star’s position at tight end, showed that when Swift is in attendance Kelce was averaging 99 receiving yards per game at that point of the matchup (his final numbers from Sunday’s game bumped that figure up to 108).
In comparison, CBS showed that when Swift isn’t there, or in their words when Kelce is ‘left to his own devices’, which is a lyric from ‘Anti-Hero’, the lead single from her 2022 Midnights album, he averages only 46.5 yards per game.

Sunday was the fourth time that Swift had watched her new beau play in five weeks, and the singer appeared to have a great time as the Chiefs improved to 6-1.
Her and Mahomes, the wife of Chiefs quarterback Patrick, enjoyed soaking up the action together, even breaking out into a little dance during the first half.
Swift, with a drink in hand, and Brittany, holding her 11-month-old baby boy, Bronze, in her arms, swayed from side to side as they bopped their heads in time with each other.
The 33-year-old artist was even seen wearing a friendship bracelet with ’87’ on it – which is his jersey number for the Chiefs.
The Love Story singer waved to the fans who had flocked to Arrowhead to see her just as much as the Chiefs, with some bringing signs that read: ‘Go Taylor’s boyfriend.’
The pop sensation had returned to Arrowhead after enjoying a lunch at Kelce’s house in Missouri earlier in the day.

However, the ‘Midnights’ singer won’t be able to watch Kelce in action for much longer this season.
Swift will resume her Eras Tour in Argentina on November 9.
However, the show will coincide with the Chiefs’ Week 10 bye – raising the question if Kelce will jet off to Buenos Aires to see Swift.
The pair will also have the chance to spend more time with each other during a break in the Eras Tour between November 26 and February 7.
But if Kelce and the Chiefs return to the Super Bowl on February 11, Swift appears unlikely to attend as she’ll be in Tokyo the day before.
