The Kansas City Chiefs are officially 2-0 in their Taylor Swift Era. The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter was in attendance at MetLife Stadium as the defending Super Bowl champs narrowly edged the New York Jets 23-20 in a highly competitive Sunday Night Football matchup. The singer wasn’t alone, either. She was joined by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Sophie Turner, who she gained custody of amidst the actress’ split with Joe Jonas, and Jake from State Farm. The celebrity sightings gave Chiefs fans a chance to learn the Who’s Who of Swift’s entourage while Swifties were learning about pass coverage and inconsistent NFL officiating. Although the verdict is still out on whether or not Swift and Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce will be more than media fanfare, the budding relationship has resulted in some serious gains for the tight end. After last week’s game, Kelce gained nearly a million followers on Instagram, and sports apparel store Fanatics reported a 400-percent increase in his jersey sales.
Meanwhile during the league’s annual game across the pond, the NFL toyed around with their broadcast. In addition to the traditional stream for the Atlanta Falcons-Jacksonville Jaguars game, the league teamed up with Disney for an entirely animated broadcast dubbed “Toy Story Funday Football.” Motion-capture technology transported the game from Wembley Stadium to Andy’s room and offered children everywhere the chance to see an animated toy be yanked from the field by The Claw after suffering a concussion. No Buzz Lightyears were injured in the process, and so, the simulcast is likely the first of many as the league continues its efforts to broaden its reach.
In any event, with the start of a new week, these players on the timeline already have their game faces on. Today’s funny tweets include those about a deep-sea film plot, the nuances that A.I. art can and cannot replicate and Jimmy Butler letting you know that this is not a phase.
