The Kansas City Chiefs improved to 7-2 after beating the Miami Dolphins (6-3) in Frankfurt, Germany on Sunday, but the conversation surrounding the game focused on tight end Travis Kelce’s sub-par performance in the absence of his girlfriend , Taylor. Fast.
The two-time Super Bowl winner had just three catches for 14 yards with no touchdowns as Kansas City defeated the Miami Dolphins 21-14.
Memes and comments from fans flooded X (formerly Twitter) about the performance, citing how differently Kelce plays when pop star girlfriend Taylor Swift is present.
“Kelce has two catches for seven yards and an illegal shift penalty… and Taylor Swift is nowhere to be seen in Frankfort,” said one fan.
“I think it’s time for Taylor to decide whether she wants to commit to this team or not.”

Fans responded to Kelce’s performance against the Dolphins with memes and comments on X
Kelce’s mom Donna recently credited Travis’ relationship with Swift for taking his game to “a new level” and the numbers have proven her right by far. Fans are starting to notice and point out Swift’s effect on Kelce, not only on social media but on the court as well.
Since Swift showed up at Kelce’s games, the Chiefs have gone 4-0 when she was present and 2-1 in her absence.
Before Sunday’s game, in a loss to the Denver Broncos, Kelce had six receptions for 58 yards. While it was better than his performance in Germany, it was a significant drop from his 12-for-179 performance against the Chargers, with Swift in the stands, the week before.
While it wasn’t the best night numbers-wise, Kelce’s 14 yards were not in vain. Aside from the win, Kelce also became the franchise leader in receiving yards (10,941) among tight ends, overtaking Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez.
