CBS Sports announcer Ian Eagle is clearly plugged into pop culture and showed it by making an elite reference during Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars. Travis Kelce is rumored to be dating singer Taylor Swift, so Eagle snuck in a song reference during the Chiefs star tight end’s third-quarter touchdown.
When Kelce, born in 1989, caught a touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes, Eagle said, “Kelce finds a blank space for the score.”
Eagle is a confirmed Swiftie.
It was Kelce’s regular season debut after missing Week 1 due to injury, and he was ready for it, shaking off any offseason rust. He scored the first Chiefs touchdown of the second half, making it 14-6 Kansas City. Kelce knows the end zone all too well, as the score was the 70th touchdown of his career.
Kelce forgot that the Jaguars defense existed when he caught the nine-yard pass from Mahomes. It seems the connection between Kelce and Mahomes will forever and always be successful. The last time the two teamed up for a TD was in their Super Bowl LVII win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Chiefs went on to win 17-9 and the team can breathe a sigh of relief after bouncing back from last week’s loss to the Detroit Lions. Everything has changed for the Chiefs from Week 1 to Week 2, earning their first win of the season on Sunday and I can imagine there was a lot of happiness in the locker room after the victory.
