There are very few people in this world who can successfully pressure Patrick Mahomes on a football field. Apparently, Taylor Swift is one of those people.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback led the way in his team’s 41-10 manhandling of the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

Mahomes threw for 272 yards with 3 touchdowns and only left the game when the Chiefs were already up 41-0.

But despite the lopsided score, Mahomes admitted he did feel some pressure. It didn’t come from the Bears’ pass rush, but rather from Taylor Swift fans wanting to see Travis Kelce score a touchdown.

“I heard she was in the house. I felt a little bit of pressure,” said Mahomes. “So, I knew I had to give it to [Kelce]. … I think he wanted to get in the end zone just as much as all the Swifties wanted him to.”

The term “Swifties” is used to reference members of Swift’s fan base. Kelce did score a touchdown for all the Swifties out there early in the third quarter.

Swift all but confirmed the dating rumors with Kelce given her attendance at Arrowhead Stadium next to another special guest.

The Chiefs are officially 1-0 when Swift shows up to support Kelce. Her next chance to make an appearance would be next week when the Chiefs travel to face the New York Jets.
