The Kelce and Swift partnership has got the whole of America talking this week but it was a different pairing of the same names that caught the eye for the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.

A day after Taylor Swift went to see her rumored boyfriend Travis Kelce play for the Kansas City Chiefs, Jason Kelce – Travis’s older brother – was combining with his Philadelphia Eagles teammate D’Andre Swift. Swift starred as the Eagles beat the Bucs 25-11 in a 138-yard game, with a little help from Jason on the way.

The irony was not lost on football fans nor the Eagles themselves – they shared a video of Kelce and Swift high-fiving before the game with the caption: ‘Our favorite Kelce x Swift duo’.

Swift himself carried the ball 26 yards on one play, jumping over Antoine Winfield in the process, after Kelce made a crucial block to keep his path clear. 

Taylor herself may well be cheering the two on from home, as well. While she was celebrating a Chiefs victory on Sunday she has previously made no secret of the fact that the Eagles are her team.

She even recently confirmed that the lyrics in her song ‘Gold Rush’  – ‘padding ‘cross your wooden floor with my Eagles t-shirt hanging from the door’ reference being an Eagles fan.

Some fans thought Swift, born in Pennsylvania, was referencing the band The Eagles but she clarified the lyric at a show in the Eagles stadium this year.

‘I don’t know how large the debate was, but I did see the debate,’ Swift said. ‘I have a lyric that says, ‘With my Eagles t-shirt hanging from the door.’ I saw some people wondering if it was the band the Eagles or the team the Eagles.

‘I love the band the Eagles, but guys, come on. I’m from Philly. Of course it’s the team.’

The NFL saw the funny side when Jason arrived for Monday night’s game with his headphones on, tweeting video with the caption: ‘Wonder what Jason Kelce is listening to…’

Travis’s Chiefs would have left Swift heartbroken in February when they beat Jason’s Eagles in the Super Bowl.

But now it appears that pop’s biggest star has a second team after watching Travis and the Chiefs on Sunday.

She was in a suite at the Arrowhead Stadium, next to his mom Donna, to cheer him on as the Chiefs beat the Chicago Bears 41-10.
