A glum-looking Travis Kelce was spotted at the Kansas City Chiefs' hotel in Denver on Saturday night ahead of Sunday's game with the Broncos, where girlfriend Taylor Swift is not expected to be in attendance. The famous pop star is reportedly preparing for the South American leg of her international tour, and won't be on hand in the Mile High City, where the 6-1 Chiefs hope to pick up their seventh-straight win on the season.
While several fans were seen lurking around the hotel - including one young woman dressed as Swift - the usually gregarious Kelce didn't take time to do any mingling. Instead, the 6-foot-5, 250-pound tight end was seen lumbering from a team meeting into the elevator, where security cut off approaching admirers.
Things have been easy for Kansas City during the four games that Swift has attended, all of which ended with Chiefs victories, including a previous matchup with the Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs will try to keep that success going on Sunday in Denver, where a winter storm has already resulted in a few inches of snow.
The immediate future for Kelce and Swift is obviously complicated by their busy schedules. Next week, the Chiefs play the Miami Dolphins in Germany on November 5 and then have the following weekend off - which conveniently for Kelce falls just as Swift's Buenos Aires dates begin.
She attended her first Chiefs game on September 24 against the Chicago Bears, when she appeared in Kelce's suite at Arrowhead Stadium alongside his mom Donna - confirming speculation linking them together. The Chiefs won that game 41-10, with Swift caught on camera shouting 'Let's f***ing go!' when Kelce scored a touchdown.
