Over the past few weeks both fans of the NFL and pop culture have merged and rallied behind the relationship of Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and global music superstar Taylor Swift. So much so that the NFL hasn’t been shy about focusing coverage of Kelce’s games on Swift when she’s in attendance.
This afternoon when Kelce was injured in the contest against the Minnesota Vikings, all social media wanted to discuss was Taylor Swift. Fortunately, Kelce would recover and return to the game and score for the Chiefs.
Let’s go to the tweets
If Travis Kelce is out for the year because of a turf injury, and Taylor Swift stops coming to games, the NFL will ban turf within seconds
