Over the weekend, Swift was on hand for the Chiefs game with the Bears, and Kelce finished with a team-high seven receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown. Kelce's fans loved his performance, but he now has even more supporters in his corner.
According to TMZ, Kelce's Chiefs jersey sales have gone up 400 percent over the past week. No one can argue that Swift is already making a big impact for Chiefs Kingdom, as Swifties are showering Kelce with love:

Kelce's podcast is No. 1 on Apple, he has a boatload of new Instagram followers and more. Not only that, but Swift is showing that she's a pretty darn faithful KC fan too.
According to multiple reports, she is planning on attending the Chiefs vs. Jets game on Sunday night, which will take place at MetLife Stadium in primetime. Will she be in a suite with Kelce's mom again? Oh, we'd love to see that.

Swift is easily one of the biggest names out there, and Kelce is one of the best offensive playmakers in the league. This is the best power couple of the year and it's not even close.
