The NFL Week 4 games are currently underway. This time the Kansas City Chiefs and the New York Jets were facing off against each other in the Sunday night football game, which kicked off at 8:20 pm ET. This game has already been generating excitement due to the presence of star quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the arena and Aaron Rodgers off the field. Now, it has also attracted attention from its star-studded audience, thanks to a certain tight end Travis Kelce.

However, interestingly, despite being on the Jets’ home turf at MetLife Stadium in New York, it appears that many stars have come out to support and cheer for the Chiefs this time. One possible reason for this could be the presence and popularity of iconic singer Taylor Swift and her probable association with the 33-year-old tight end. In fact, actor Ryan Reynolds is among those who have joined in the attendance to hail Kelce’s mom and Chiefs!

In addition to Travis Kelce’s alleged date Taylor Swift, many other celebrities also attended the game at MetLife Stadium. One notable attendee was Ryan Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively. The former is the owner of the Wrexham soccer club and was spotted in the Chiefs’ private suite alongside Taylor Swift, passionately cheering for the Chiefs.

However, that wasn’t the only highlight of the game as Reynolds also showed his support for Travis Kelce’s mother, Donna Kelce. This took place in the form of a tweet posted by the “Deadpool” star which consisted of a photo of Donna Kelce along with the caption, “Donna Kelce FTW.”

It appears that momma Kelce is enjoying her fan moments as probably has become as popular as his tight-end son.

Now, the soccer enthusiast Ryan Reynolds has joined the crowd and seems completely smitten by her.

However, this was during the time A-Rod used to play for Green Bay Packers.

About a year ago, before his appearance at the Sunday game between the Chiefs and the Jets, Wrexham owner Ryan Reynolds revealed in an interview that he is a fan of the Green Bay Packers. He stated, “I like the Packers in the NFL. But, BC Lions have my heart. You know, back in the old days, Doug Flutie played there, Lui Passaglia.” The Packers boast 12 league championships and four Super Bowl titles, including one with Aaron Rodgers, which has contributed to their massive fan base.

However, since Rodgers’ departure, some fans have shifted their allegiance to the Jets. In Reynolds’ case, it appears to be different as he showed his support for Mahomes’ team, the Chiefs, this time. The reasons for this change could be attributed to Taylor Swift’s presence or a genuine shift in Reynolds’ interests.
