The NFL was heavily criticized by supporters for its excessive coverage of Swift during Kansas City’s win at the New York Jets earlier this month, after broadcasters NBC regularly cut to the pop sensation in the stands at MetLife Stadium.
Even Kelce, the Chiefs star she has been dating for the past month, admitted there was too much of a focus on his new love interest during games. ‘They are overdoing it a bit for sure,’ he said on his New Heights podcast.
After missing Sunday’s win over the Minnesota Vikings, Swift is heading back to Arrowhead this evening to watch Kelce take on the Broncos, with her new beau expected to play despite being listed as questionable due to an ankle problem.

Prime broadcaster Al Michaels has reassured die-hard fans they won’t make things ‘farcical’

And fortunately for fans tuning in solely for the action on the field, Michaels insists will not be televising Swift ‘all night long’.
‘What we’re gonna do tonight, everything in moderation,’ Prime’s play-by-play man told Sports Illustrated ahead of the game.
‘Our crew talked about it this morning. You can’t make a sideshow the show. The vast majority of the audience are tuning in to watch a football game.
‘There are people, I don’t know how many, it could be a sizable number, but it’s certainly not a majority, that if you trained the camera on her all night long, they’d be satisfied with that. This is not what we’re doing to do.
‘There might be an appropriate shot or a couple. I don’t know what the number is going to be. If Kelce scores six touchdowns, who the hell knows what we’re going to do.
‘But for the most part, just in moderation. The game is still the important element here, by far. That’s our thought.
‘After that, you sort of make it, one of my favorite words, farcical.’
Swift has sparked a frenzy ever since she was seen cheering Kelce on from the stands during the Chiefs’ win over the Chicago Bears in Kansas City last month.

Her last appearance in New Jersey is said to have caused a staggering 53 percent rise in the number of teenage girls aged 12-17 watching NBC’s edition of Sunday Night Football.
Kelce is expected to be fit for the Chiefs’ Thursday Night Football clash, but he will play with a heavily taped ankle.
The Chiefs tight end appeared to be a doubt for tonight’s game after suffering a sprained ankle against the Vikings last week.
He missed practice earlier this week but, according to ESPN, Kelce has won his race to be fit in time to play.
