Jason Kelce is done with his NFL career. NFL fans know him best as a center for the Philadelphia Eagles, and Swifties know him best as the brother of Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, Travis Kelce. Unfortunately, this means that there won’t be a Super Bowl matchup between Kelce and Kelce again, unlike the one that occurred in 2023 between the Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs.
But, the Eagles’ season finale allowed us to watch Jason and his spouse Kylie Kelce support their younger brother during the Chiefs’ game against the Buffalo Bills in upstate New York. Swift was present as well, giving us our first glimpse of Swift interacting with Jason and Kylie. Given that Jason really went bonkers during the game, it was undoubtedly a memorable meeting. Kylie once seemed to be asking Jason to stop, telling someone to tell her husband—who was wearing no shirt—to go back inside. Yes, shirtless, and yes, back inside. Twice in 20 degree weather, he leaped out of the opulent box with nothing on top of his waist save a beanie.
Jason was interacting with fans when someone—possibly a security guard—leaned out the suite’s window and said, “Kylie said get your a** back in here,” according to video that was uploaded on X, the former name of Twitter.
Much of the game appeared to feature Jason Kelce without a shirt on.
When Travis Kelce scored the game’s first touchdown in the second quarter, putting the Chiefs ahead of the Bills for the first time, Jason Kelce became the first player to emerge from the suite and join supporters in the stands. Add that to the list of the Kelces brothers’ greatest moments of brotherhood. Jason roared with excitement, pulled off his shirt, leaped out of the suite, and drank his beer before climbing back in. For the remainder of the game, he appeared to remain shirtless.
While Jason’s video went viral, some internet fans were more interested in Kylie’s background response, which consisted of just a smile and no indication of surprise. Some said it demonstrated how compatible the two were, and one person wrote on X, saying, “I love the adoration in her eyes for him. She simply has a way with him.
During this Chiefs game, some made jokes about how Jason is now seeing more screen time than Taylor Swift.
“I could not imagine being Kylie Kelce, having to wrangle drunk, shirtless Jason into an Uber/hired car service,” a second person joked.
Jason Kelce shot a bowling ball in the parking lot to warm up before the game.
On X, a fan made the observation that nobody would have expected the scene to happen: “You wouldn’t have believed me if I told you that a shirtless Jason Kelce would be in a suite with Cara Delevingne cheering on Taylor Swift’s boyfriend.” Yes, amidst the commotion, some failed to notice that Delevingne was also present!
It’s not as if Jason drank his first beer following Travis Kelce’s first touchdown, not that there’s anything wrong with that. Jason joined some Buffalo Bills fans—who are well-known for their tailgating—in the parking lot for some pregame drinks prior to the game. But this wasn’t just any drink—it was a bowling ball drink. He was clothed for that one though. A man of the people, indeed!
Travis laughed and said, “My brother was shirtless?” in response to Aditi Kinkhabwala of CBS Sports asking him after the game if he knew his brother had taken off his shirt. No, I’m not at all surprised by it. I adore that guy, and we always cheer each other on when we’re not on the field together.” At the AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens, we hope to see more of Jason, Kylie, and Swift, of course. They’ll all be having a great time, if the Bills game was any guide!
