Travis Kelce thinks NFL ‘overdoing it’ with Taylor Swift coverage

“They are overdoing it a bit for sure, especially my situation,” Travis said when asked by Jason about the coverage. “They’re just trying to have fun with it.”

NBC flashed to Swift in the suite at MetLife Stadium 17 times during the Chiefs’ 23-20 Sunday night win over the Jets.

“Damn, that’s crazy,” Travis said. “That’s like once a drive. Mom told me everyone was enjoying themselves.”

The singing star was joined by A-list pals Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, and Blake Lively.

“They are not there to get thrown on the TV,” Travis said. “You never know you get caught throwing down a big old cheeseburger and you look like an idiot. There are certain things you just don’t want to be on TV at all times.”

Jason noted the boost in female viewership Travis’ games have seen the past two weeks with Swift in attendance as the relationship has gone from rumor to reality.

“The NFL is not used to celebrities coming to the games,” Jason said. “Basketball has it figured out … You show them once, let them know they’re there, maybe after a touchdown, but you can’t go overboard with it. People are there to watch the game.”

The NFL received criticism after the game when it changed the bio on its Instagram account to read: “Chiefs are 2-0 as swifties.”

“We frequently change our bios and profile imagery based on what’s happening in and around our games, as well as culturally,” the league said in a statement issued to The Post. “The Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce news has been a pop cultural moment we’ve leaned into in real-time, as it’s an intersection of sport and entertainment, and we’ve seen an incredible amount of positivity around the sport.”
