Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has discussed how the flourishing relationship between Taylor Swift and Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has affected him.
The biggest game of their NFL season is coming up soon as the Chiefs take on the Philadelphia Eagles next.
As has become the way for all linked to the Chiefs, Mahomes has been asked about Swift and Kelce and the relationship that seems to be going very well so far.
A big interview with Mahomes is set to be aired on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown but an extract has already been released.
Mahomes not distracted by Swift and Kelce
Mahomes claims that there is no distraction for the team despite the world’s attention on Swift and Kelce.
“I’ve been lucky enough to meet Taylor and [know] how good of a person she is,” Mahomes tells ESPN’s Jeff Darlington. “I think you understand why it’s not become a distraction or anything like that because everybody cares about being the best they can be every day.”
He was also asked whether there was a chance of him attending one of the future Eras Tour shows in Europe when Taylor Swift heads across the water.
“We’ll see when we get the offseason,” he said. “Maybe, like, I’m traveling to Europe to go to a concert or something.”
Tight end Travis Kelce has been Mahomes’ most reliable target throughout the season with 597 receiving yards and 4 TDs, meanwhile Rashee Rice it’s the most prolific wide receiver on the team, with also 4 TDs and 378 yards.
Amongst the other WRs in the team, Kadarius Toney, Skyy Moore, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Mecole Hardman Jr., etc, have only scored 3 TD between all of them in the season.
