CBS broadcaster made sly Taylor Swift reference on Travis Kelce’s TD catch for Chiefs

Welcome back, Travis Kelce.

After missing the Chiefs’ first game of the season because of a knee injury, tight end Travis Kelce returned for Sunday’s 17-9 win over the Jaguars in Jacksonville, Florida.

Between the two games came a report that Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and superstar singer Taylor Swift were spotted hanging out.

That story went viral, as it was picked up by nearly every media outlet. It was even mentioned after the Eagles beat the Vikings on Thursday night.

Kelce made an impact in his first game of the 2023 season, scoring a touchdown on a 9-yard reception from quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the third quarter.

Here is the play and make sure to listen to the call from CBS Sports broadcaster Ian Eagle.

“Kelce finds a blank space for the score,” Eagle noted.

That was an under-the-radar reference to Swift, who has a song called, “Blank Space.”

There’s no way that’s a coincidence, right? If you think it might be just happenstance, consider this.

Eagle said a little later: “Kelce was injured last week. Able to ‘Shake It Off’ for Week 2.”

“Shake It Off” is another of Swift’s most popular songs.

Yeah, Ian Eagle knew exactly what he was doing.
