Travis Kelce hilariously thanked a supporter at MetLife Stadium after they are said to have handed the Chiefs star a bracelet which read ‘on the map’ – a reference to recent suggestions that new flame Taylor Swift is the only reason he is famous.
Kelce was spotted leaving Swift‘s Tribeca apartment on Sunday afternoon before the Chiefs star turned up at MetLife to see brother Jason face the Jets – but his new flame stayed away.
While on the sidelines, the tight end was handed a gift by a fan. He could be seen reading the bracelet – mouthing ‘on the map’ – before pointing to the fan, patting his chest and pumping his fist. It comes after some Swift supporters claimed the singer put Kelce on the map.
Swift looked set to attend her second NFL game this week after watching her new beau, Kelce, and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football.
Excitement and anticipation of the new lovebirds’ appearance at MetLife built after they were spotted hand-in-hand, arriving for a date night in New York City on Saturday. The A-list couple grabbed a meal at Nobu before making cameos during the 49th season premiere episode of Saturday Night Live.

But Kelce was seen leaving Swift’s apartment in a green Palm Angels tracksuit at around 3pm on Sunday after they spent the night together. He was then spotted near the sidelines at MetLife Stadium alongside some friends as Jason and the Eagles suffered their first defeat of the season.
Despite her new beau leading the Chiefs to two Super Bowls, 12-time Grammy Award winner Swift is a renowned Philadelphia fan, referencing the team in her song ‘Gold Rush’ off her ninth studio album, ‘Evermore,’ in which she references her ‘Eagles t-shirt hanging from the door’.
Swift had been in attendance at MetLife Stadium only two weeks ago as she rocked up with her posse of celebrity pals, including Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, when it was Kelce and the Chiefs’ turn to tackle the Jets.
During their posh dinner date on Saturday, the pair were seen clinging to each other and cuddling at the table, a source told TMZ.
The couple appeared on the late-night comedy show hours later, with Kelce joining a sketch that poked fun at their very public relationship.

Swift announced the night’s musical guest, Ice Spice, which sent the crowd into a frenzy.
At the cast party, Swift was seeing chatting with the rapper and her friends.
Swift and Kelce were seen kissing and getting ‘handsy’ at the afterparty into the early hours.
They strolled into Catch NYC – a glamorous steakhouse frequented by celebrities – around 2.20am while holding hands.
Their presence in Manhattan sparked belief that they could also make an NFL cameo in New Jersey.
Though despite excitement over the prospect of them sitting alongside each other at a football game for the first time, there was no sign of Swift and Kelce at Sunday’s game.
Swift was first spotted cheering on Kelce at Arrowhead Stadium during the Chiefs’ Week 3 rout of the Chicago Bears, before hitting the Big Apple the following week.
But Swift chose not to attend her second NFL game this week after she enjoyed a happy return to Arrowhead to watch Kelce and the Chiefs with his mom Donna (right)

Despite skipping the Chiefs’ game against the Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis, Swift jetted in to Kansas City from Los Angeles, where she enjoyed the premiere screening of her Eras Tour movie, to support her beau during the Chiefs’ 19-8 win over the Broncos Thursday night.
The pop sensation watched her rumored boyfriend, Kelce, 34, for a third time this season.
Swift, who was seen arriving at the stadium ahead of kickoff in exclusive footage captured by Dailymail.com, took her seat next to Donna while wearing a $112 Kansas City windbreaker designed by DWTS alum Erin Andrews.
And as her NFL-star beau inspired the Super Bowl champions to another victory with a typically powerful display, the pop sensation could be seen leaping to her feet and applauding on several occasions.
She appeared on good terms with Donna, despite Kelce’s mom throwing apparent shade at her after they met for the first time at Arrowhead for last month’s win over the Chicago Bears.
The NFL star’s mom appeared to be rocking a Swiftie-style friendship bracelet, which fans had been making to wear at Swift’s Eras Tour concerts, with one reading, ‘Today.’
Brittany Mahomes, wife of Kansas City’s star quarterback Patrick, was sat alongside the pair in their suite and could be seen hugging Swift when their men combined brilliantly on the field.
Her relationship with Kelce appears to be getting serious as she was also spotted chatting with his dad, Ed Kelce, for the first time during the Week 6 matchup.

Swift appeared to spend the night at Kelce’s home as her security team was spotted outside the property Friday morning in DailyMail.com exclusive photos.
The vehicles parked outside the tight end’s property appeared to be the same SUVs that collected the star directly from her private plane and drove her away from the airport on Thursday.
Later into the afternoon, Kelce’s mom, Donna, who had sat along Swift in the Arrowhead suite throughout Thursday’s game, was seen arriving at the mansion.
Her private jet was seen taking off Saturday afternoon and a pair of sneakers, that appeared to be the new Travis Scott golf Air Jordans, were spotted climbing the steps on the plane before it took off, and it might just have been Kelce.
The plane presumably was jet set for New York with Swift and Kelce en route for their date night later on Saturday.
