Andy Reid hopes Taylor Swift will continue to cheer on the Kansas City Chiefs.
Swift was again in attendance to watch boyfriend Travis Kelce deliver another monster performance as the Chiefs blew away the Los Angeles Chargers 31-17 to improve their record to 6-1 in the AFC West.
It was the fourth time the pop star has watched Kelce play this season and the tight end has averaged more than twice as many yards with her present as without.
He and quarterback Patrick Mahomes combined to devastating effect once again with Kelce finishing with 179 yards on 12 catches and one touchdown.
Reid said of the 34-year-old: “He’s getting better with time. Taylor can stay around all she wants!”

Mahomes, who threw for 424 yards and four touchdowns, was impressed with the way Kelce was able to divert from the playbook to create space against a Chargers defense that had no answer.
“The main thing is the way he’s able to recognize coverage and adjust on the fly,” Mahomes said.
“We always talk about it, but it’s something that you can’t take for granted. It’s almost like he’s playing Madden. He can read the coverage and stop in the windows and be open and be on the same page as me at all times and so he did a great job.
“It seems like he does it week in and week out and that’s why he’s the player that he is and he’ll be a Hall of Famer one day.”
Last week, former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski claimed Kelce was the best player to have played the position in NFL history and Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling was not going to disagree.
Valdes-Scantling said: “He’s the best tight end in the NFL, in the history of football.
“So there’s not really much to say past that. He’s the best to ever to do it. You can know what you want to run, and he’ll still get open.”
