Travis Kelce’s 2023 ended with a win and his 2024 is beginning with another: Some quality time with girlfriend, Taylor Swift.
The All-Pro tight end had only three catches, but his Kansas City Chiefs still came back to beat the visiting Cincinnati Bengals, 25-17, to clinch their eighth straight AFC West crown.
Afterwards the couple was chauffeured in a golf cart to the players’ parking lot, where DailyMail.com cameras caught Kelce absconding with Swift in his Rolls Royce. While Swift sported a Chiefs varsity jacket adorned with her nickname, ‘Tay-Ta,’ Kelce was dressed comfortably in sweats and a knit hat covering his shaved head.
The two are believed to be ringing in 2024 with family and friends at a private party in the Kansas City area. Kelce’s mother, Donna, was seen in Swift’s luxury box earlier in the evening.
Late in the fourth, cameras caught Swift celebrating the impending victory with a young fan when Kansas City’s Chris Jones sacked Bengals quarterback Jake Browning on Cincinnati’s final drive.
Kelce was nearly a non-factor for Patrick Mahomes & Co., finishing the game with only three catches for 16 yards on four targets. He remains only a few yards short of his eighth consecutive 1,000-yard season.
But for the 10-6 Chiefs, the victory was significant. Not only does Kansas City win its eighth consecutive AFC West crown, but it comes after a miserable 3-8 stretch that threatened their entire season. Naturally, many have suggested that Swift was somehow to blame for distracting Kelce, and the Chiefs from the job at hand, but that wasn’t the case on Sunday as Kansas City came back to beat the Bengals, who fell to 8-8.
Swift joyously reacted to the victory along one young fan, sticking her finger in the air and screaming in the boy’s face.
