It’s a love story, perhaps, for NFL tight end Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift, who was seen in Kelce’s family suite at Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears.
The singer was shown cheering on the Chiefs during the FOX Sports broadcast, dressed in a red and white team jacket. She appeared to be sitting next to Donna Kelce, the player’s mom, chatting and laughing throughout the game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.

NFL Week 3 Game Recap: Kansas City Chiefs 41, Chicago Bears 10 | PFF
The Kansas City Chiefs got back to their dominant best as they took down the Chicago Bears, 41-10, at home to move to 2-1 on the season and drop the Bears to 0-3.
A dominant first half featured Patrick Mahomes throwing a pair of touchdowns to Jerick McKinnon, while Isaiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire both scored on the ground. In all, the Chiefs led 34-0 at the midway point.
The game was out of hand to the point where the Chiefs were comfortable replacing Mahomes, who had his ankle rolled up on late in the first half, with Blaine Gabbert late in the third quarter with the score at 41-0.

Travis Kelce was chatting with Patrick Mahomes in practice this week when he mentioned, almost as an afterthought, that he thought Taylor Swift would take him up on his invitation to watch the Kansas City Chiefs play the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
“Some things with Travis,” Mahomes explained later, “he says it and you don’ t know if it’s true or not, he says it so calmly.”
Turns out it was true.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ offense returned to form on Sunday and had an impressive outing against the visiting Chicago Bears. With that said, it didn’t come without some apparent mistakes that sparked plenty of controversy.
Despite amassing a staggering 456 total net yards and having by far their best performance of the season thus far, the Chiefs’ offense encountered some adversity in the first half of Week 3. On two separate occasions late in the second quarter, starting right tackle Jawaan Taylor drew a penalty for an illegal formation infraction. This comes just one week after the big-money free agent signing was called for five penalties in Week 2’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars … which came a week after Taylor’s pre-snap depth and subsequent jump at the snap were both brought into question on the season-opening Thursday night broadcast.
Week 3 recap: Chicago Bears stay winless after getting dominated 41-10 by Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs | Chicago Tribune
Can you tell the story of a 41-10 blowout through two passes? Maybe. A massive mismatch — the likes of which is rarely seen in the parity-filled NFL — was evident in the operation of both teams’ offenses Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Kansas City Chiefs have a two-time MVP and two-time Super Bowl champion in Patrick Mahomes. He’s the magician whose longest completion of a brilliant first half came on play action, with Mahomes buying extra time with his pocket movement and vision and then throwing an absolute dime to wide receiver Justin Watson just inside the right sideline for 37 yards.
KC Chiefs’ Defense ‘Only Scratching the Surface’ After Win Against Chicago Bears | Sports Illustrated
The Kansas City Chiefs’ offense exploded en route to a 41-point outing against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, but it was Steve Spagnuolo’s defense that once again helped steal the show with a dominant performance.
Holding Chicago’s offense to just 10 points (with all of them coming in the fourth quarter), the hosts played a stifling brand of football in Week 3. Sound execution along the front four, from the linebacking corps and in the secondary helped the defense work together in near-perfect harmony, with quarterback Justin Fields and his teammates never managing to settle into a groove. On an afternoon where a stellar defensive performance wasn’t even needed in order for the Chiefs to win, they got one anyway.

Donovan Smith raised his arms above his head, then violently ripped them down, raising his head to scream enthusiastically toward the Chiefs’ sideline.
This wasn’t after a touchdown. Nor was it after a game-deciding play in the fourth quarter.
The Kansas City Chiefs’ left tackle, instead, was celebrating a 13-yard run in the second quarter of KC’s eventual 41-10 home victory Sunday over the Chicago Bears.
