The Kansas City Chiefs are undefeated when superstar singer Taylor Swift is in attendance, so it is no wonder head coach Andy Reid is fine with her sticking around as long as she wants. Not to mention, tight end Travis Kelce is having some of his best games while the 12-time Grammy winner is cheering him on from the suite.
In the Chiefs' 31-17 win, Kelce had 12 receptions for 179 yards and a touchdown, as Swift, dressed in a Chiefs sweatshirt, cheered him on. After the game, Reid commented on how his top pass catcher keeps improving, joking that it has to do with the Taylor Swift effect.
"Kelce keeps getting better with time, Taylor can stay around all she wants," the Super Bowl winning head coach said, getting laughs from the media.
