Jason Kelce went to Buffalo to cheer on his brother, Travis, and the Chiefs in the NFL playoffs.
The Eagles star partied with Bills Mafia, connected a fan with Taylor Swift, and lost his shirt.
When he was spotlighted on the broadcast, his 2-year-old astutely noted "Dad's boobs are showing."
Jason Kelce is always giving 100% — on the field or in the stands.
The legendary Eagles center saw his season — and, perhaps, his career — come to a close with Philadelphia's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in last week's Wild Card round. But the future Hall of Famer is putting his newfound free time to good use; he headed to Buffalo this weekend to support his younger brother — star Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce — as he and his Chiefs took on Josh Allen's Bills in Orchard Park.
And, boy, did the elder Kelce brother make the most of his visit.
With the temperature in Buffalo hovering right around 25°F, the 36-year-old spent the early parts of the day tailgating with Bills Mafia. He was spotted outside of Highmark Stadium sporting a comically large Bills hat and taking shots out of a bowling ball while flanked by the Buffalo faithful.

By the time he was ready to head into the stadium, Kelce was sporting red and gold in support of his brother's team. His "Big Yeti" T-Shirt paid homage to a nickname his little brother picked up during their college days with the Cincinnati Bearcats.
Kelce was spotted inside a suite alongside several family members: his wife, Kylie, mom, Donna, and dad, Ed. They were joined by some famous faces as well; Taylor Swift — who has been dating Travis since last summer — took in the game with her friend, actor and model Cara Delevingne, and Brittany Mahomes, whose husband, Patrick Mahomes, is Kansas City's star quarterback.

Several times throughout the close contest, Kelce was caught on camera crushing beers in the box and cheering on his brother. And by the time Travis made his way into the end zone for Kansas City's first touchdown of the night in the waning minutes of the second quarter, the 6-foot-3, 282-pound lineman had shed his shirt and picked up a Chiefs beanie.
CBS' broadcast showed Kelce celebrating the score with the fervor of a proud older brother — particularly one who had spent the entire day preparing for such a moment.

His nearly 3-year-old daughter, Ellie, caught the moment on the small screen. She astutely noted "Dad's boobs are showing" to whomever was in the room watching the game with her, and Kelce went on to share the hilarious quip on X (formerly Twitter).

Kelce used some of his chaotic energy for good, too. Later in the game, he spotted a Swiftie brandishing a homemade sign that read "I ❤️ T. Swift" in the section directly in front of their shared box. The father of three hopped through the window of the suite, waved the young fan over, and told her "We're gonna show this to Taylor" as he scooped her into his arms.
Based on the fan's waves and big smile, it appears as though she successfully caught Swift's eye.
Real time with All Pro @JasonKelce in the box with @taylorswift13 right behind our seats. Unfortunate loss for our @BuffaloBills but great to have my friends see a legend. @NFL @espn @barstoolsports @stoolpresidente pic.twitter.com/h2xOt4PSXK

Kelce may be something of a good luck charm for his brother and the Chiefs, who came away with a thrilling 27-24 road victory Sunday night. Kansas City will now travel to Baltimore to take on the top-seeded Ravens in the AFC Championship Game Sunday at 3 pm ET.
Whether Big Bro makes the short trip down from Philadelphia to Charm City for another day of shenanigans still remains to be seen.
