There was a bit of bad blood between Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce and a couple of Las Vegas Raiders players on Sunday — and Swifties watching the game were ready for it!

During the third quarter, Kelce, 34, pushed Raiders defensive back Amik Robertson and defensive tackle Jerry Tillery after a chippy play that had Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice down on the ground for a moment.

Fans watching the game seemingly gleefully shared enthusiasm about the tight end’s intensity.

“Oh my, Travis Kelce can fight,” the Daily Taylor Swift account wrote on X, while another wrote “Is it hot in here? Is anyone else warm?”

The tight end’s contributions during the game — which the Chiefs went on to win, 31-17 — went far beyond the skirmish, however, with Kelce setting a new NFL record for reaching 11,000 receiving yards in the fewest amount of games (154) as a tight end, according to NFL.com.

The Chiefs star became the fourth tight end to hit the milestone, surpassing Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez, who previously had the record in 191 games. Gonzalez holds the record for overall yards (15,127), while former Dallas Cowboys star Jason Witten is No. 2 (13,036) and former San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers star Antonio Gates is third on the list (11,841).

“Fastest tight end to 11k receiving yards AND the only player in franchise history to do it 🏹,” the Kansas City Chiefs wrote on Instagram.

Taylor Swift showed support for her man by liking the celebratory post — and it wasn’t the first time the superstar has done so this season.

Earlier this month, after Kelce broke the franchise record for total receiving yards during a game against the Miami Dolphins in Germany, Swift, 33, liked PEOPLE's Instagram post about the achievement.

Swift and Kelce have been making headlines for their ongoing relationship ever since the singer first attended one of the athlete's games on Sept. 24. She has since been spotted at three more of Kelce's games, sitting with his friends and family while cheering for the two-time Super Bowl winner.

Kelce's latest success on the field comes as the new couple have been navigating spending time together around their busy professional schedules.

While the NFL star has been playing with his team, Swift has been performing the South American leg of her Eras Tour, which she wrapped up on Sunday. She's now free until February, when her tour picks up again in Japan.
