The NFL found a great feature and won’t give it up.
Taylor Swiftis romance with Travis Kelce made for some BIG numbers NFL. She visited two Kansas City Chiefs games in a row, with the second game – which wasn’t a complete surprise – helping to set some record numbers for the sports association. It definitely didn’t hurt that she showed up with Deadpool and Wolverine, AKA Ryan Reynolds And Hugh Jackmanor among other things!

However, the focus is on the Antihero Singer at the games, between shots of her in her private suite, to commercials and even shout-outs X (Twitter) And Tick tockShe appears to have misled some fans out of fear that the NFL is prioritizing it over the actual sporting event. But the football organization disagrees!
In a statement shared with People On Wednesday, the soccer league doubled down on its recent coverage:
“We often change our bios and profile pictures depending on what’s happening in and around our games and culturally. The news about Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce was a pop culture moment that we witnessed in real time because it is at the intersection of sports and entertainment, and we saw an incredible amount of positivity surrounding sports.”
We know that’s true! The statement concluded:
“The vast majority of our content remains focused on the game, our players and various other initiatives, including ours Toy Story Funday Football Alt-cast, the international games and more.”
We mean, at the end of the day it’s still a football game… Who cares if they spice it up with a little love for the pop superstar? Does mentioning the elephant in the room really affect the game?
Interestingly, however, the NFL’s perspective on the situation is in stark contrast to Travis’. On Wednesday he shared on his New heights Podcast with big brother and Philadelphia Eagles center Jason that “they exaggerate it a little bit.” However, he definitely knows how hungry fans are for details about him and that love story Singer admitted the NFL is “just trying to have fun with it.” See below):
