Taylor Swift has provided a huge boost for the NFL and – in particular – the Kansas City Chiefs over the past month… but her fans are convinced that her absence from Sunday’s game had a negative effect on her new ‘boyfriend’ Travis Kelce.
The popularity of the league has skyrocketed after the popstar attended two games in a row to watch Chiefs tight end Kelce, but she ended her streak this week after failing to show up in Minnesota for the win over the Vikings.
Worryingly, Kelce then suffered a non-contact injury during the game and hobbled off the field – and Taylor’s fans are convinced it occurred because she wasn’t there.
In what is now being dubbed ‘The Curse of Taylor Swift’, fans are worried that her absence could negatively affect Travis’ performances going forward, as the Kansas City Chiefs chase back-to-back Super Bowls.
In the game against the Vikings, the superstar tight end did eventually return to the field, and he even went on to score a touchdown, but fans were left concerned after he slipped and appeared to damage his right ankle during the second quarter.

After heading to the locker room and being listed as questionable to return, Kelce took his place back on the field during the third quarter.
He then went on to score a touchdown in the game, latching onto a pass from quarterback Patrick Mahomes to extend the Chiefs’ lead on the night.
Taylor Swift’s fans, meanwhile, also took it into their own hands to restart the age-old debate over grass vs turf, claiming that Kelce’s injury occurred due to the artificial surface in Minnesota.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, one wrote: ‘I’m so devastated for Taylor. We KNOW how much Travis makes her happy. She had to be so worried right now.
‘She finally has a man who shows her love back and he got hurt on ARTIFICIAL TURF?
‘This is so wrong. We can fix this. No. More. TURF! @NFL @taylornation13’
