Taylor Swift was not the only one cheering for Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL’s AFC Divisional round playoff game against the Buffalo Bills. The Philadelphia Eagles star Jason Kelce stole the show with his celebration during the tense game.
After Travis scored a touchdown during the second quarter of Sunday night’s game, Jason went viral after he was caught screaming shirtless at Highmark Stadium. The football star jumped out of the window from his luxury suite to cheer on his brother among the rest of the crowd.

The cutaway to Jason during the Chiefs vs Bills game was a change of pace to all the cutaways the broadcast had to Taylor Swift, Travis’ girlfriend. Earlier in the CBS broadcast, the NFL Today broadcaster called Swift the “Most Valuable Princess of Chiefs Kingdom.”
“Look who’s in the house, that’s Taylor Swift, the MVP Most Valuable Princess of Chiefs Kingdom,” the CBS sportscaster said. “There’s always a little luck involved in football. Hopefully, she’s a good luck charm for [Travis] Kelce and the crew.”

All the good vibes from Jason and Swift seemed to have helped the Chiefs advance to the AFC Championship game next Sunday as they beat the Buffalo Bills 27-24.
Jason’s football season ended last weekend after the Eagles lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the Wild Card playoff game. ESPN reported that Jason had told his teammates he was retiring from the sport, something the center player walked back on in his podcast.
“It’s just something that I think, when it’s time to officially announce what’s happening in the future, it’ll be done at in a way that’s definitive and pays respect to a lot of people and individuals that have meant a lot to me and what has led to the career I’ve had,” he said on his New Heights podcast. “I don’t think that it would be respectful or even accurate to be able to do that right after a game like that. … But, in the future, there will be something said, I guess.”
