Travis Kelce is seen in Kansas City without Grammy Award-bound Taylor Swift hours after couple celebrated Chiefs’ win with heavy PDA on the field
Travis Kelce is back in Kansas City after a night of festivities with superstar girlfriend Taylor Swift to celebrate the Chiefs’ stunning Super Bowl qualifying win Sunday in Baltimore.
The 34-year-old tight end returned to his home in the Midwest on Monday, where he was spotted behind the wheel of his Ford Raptor pickup – just hours after his breathtaking performance on the field against the Ravens.
Taylor is believed to have headed to Los Angeles for Sunday night’s Grammy Awards. She is nominated for Album of the Year, her sixth in the category.
Unlike his jubilant appearance the night before, Kelce looked a little worse for wear Monday — perhaps from late-night partying — and without the company of his pop star lover.
In a romantic moment broadcast to the world on Sunday night, Swift, 34 – who did not appear to have traveled back home with her boyfriend – sent fans into a frenzy by taking to the pitch to congratulating on a heavy PDA.

The singer attended her 12th Kansas City Chiefs game of the season to cheer on her beau once again, this time as he watched him help his team secure their spot at Super Bowl LVIII.
And while the NFL Championship will be a star-studded event with a halftime performance by Usher, many are now wondering if the Anti-Hero singer will attend.
Swift wraps up the Japan leg of her Eras Tour on February 10 after a four-night run, and if all goes according to plan, she’ll have plenty of time to fly across the Pacific Ocean and land in Sin City for her encourage beauty.
Eagle-eyed fans captured the moment Sunday and may have told Kelce ‘I love you’ after the Chiefs beat the Ravens in a remarkable victory.
“I’ve never seen you like this before,” she can be heard in video footage amid the post-match festivities. ‘It was insane. I can not believe it. I love you.’
The joyous Kelce didn’t seem to react in kind, but continued to hug his girlfriend as he received an ‘attaboy’ from his dad, Ed.
It was certainly an emotional moment for the young couple, though it’s well-worn territory for Kelce, who will play in his fifth Super Bowl over the past four seasons on Feb. 11 in Las Vegas.
The future Hall of Famer recorded 11 catches for 116 yards and a touchdown while passing Jerry Rice for the top spot on the NFL’s all-time postseason receiving list.

After an approximately 12-hour flight from Japan, Swift will be able to land at Harry Reid International Airport, Las Vegas on Saturday, February 10 at approximately 8:30 p.m., with plenty of time before the game begins on Sunday, February 11.
America’s most famous couple hugged and kissed on the field at M&T Bank Stadium in the wake of a magnificent victory for the Chiefs over the Baltimore Ravens – who were tipped as heavy favorites to win.
Kelce found his girlfriend while waiting in emotional scenes for the AFC Championship trophy presentation and Swift looked close to tears as the pair had a moment to celebrate together with the eyes of the world on them.
And when Kelce duly took the stage and took the microphone, he was euphoric – he channeled the Beastie Boys by shouting: ‘You gotta fight for your right to party!’.
Swift now turns her attention to four nights of her blockbuster Eras tour in Japan’s capital from February 7-10 before she must race back to Allegiant Stadium for the biggest night in America’s sports calendar.
But she is expected to make the trip to be there for Kelce.
She and Travis took center stage for the post-game celebrations, but during the showdown itself, the singer seemed frustrated by the appearance of the CBS coverage around the center of the stage.
She could be seen clearly saying ‘please go away’ with the camera on her in a VIP suite while promoting next weekend’s Grammy Awards.
However, she will have to accept it on February 11, as she will travel thousands of kilometers to make the match.

The Chiefs defeated the Ravens 17-10 in the AFC Championship on Sunday to secure their spot in the Super Bowl games.
The 17-hour time difference works in her favor on her return to the U.S. from Japan and it will be the 13th Chiefs game this season Swift will have cheered for the team – her lucky number.
But luck on their side or not, judging by Sunday’s performance, Kelce and his Chiefs are going to take some time off after a frankly sensational 17-10 win in Baltimore — the team most people felt was nailed to the Super Bowl completely to win, let alone the game today.
Kelce scored a touchdown in the first quarter and went on to pass Jerry Rice’s NFL postseason record of 151 receptions in another magnificent, career-defining performance.
Swift joined Cara Delevingne in the VIP suite where she cheered the Chiefs on to victory – Jason Kelce was also there, as well as Travis’ parents Donna and Ed.
Travis’ older brother was seen high-fiving friends in the suite after his brother scored his touchdowns, but his celebrations were extremely subdued compared to the wild scenes last weekend in Buffalo.
The two brothers also had a moment on the field, with the elder Kelce wearing a Chiefs beanie throughout the day while cheering on Kansas City.
It was a heartwarming picture, Swift seen watching and smiling as the Kelce brothers shared a laugh together on the field.
“Finish this mother,” Jason told Travis as they hugged.
The older Kelce brother would later address his own future in the NFL in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com.

Now they’ll all clear their calendars and head to Vegas in two weeks as the Chiefs try to win the Super Bowl for a second straight season and cap off a fairytale campaign that saw Travis and Taylor become America’s favorite and most famous couple became
Kelce is widely regarded as one of, if not the very best, tight end in NFL history and is now going for his third Super Bowl title.
“The Chiefs are still the Chiefs,” Travis said in brief comments on the field after making 11 receptions on top of his touchdown. ‘And believe it – you have to fight for your right to party! Believe it, honey, we’re going to Las Vegas.’
Last year, it felt impossible for the Kelce family to dominate the headlines any more than they did as Travis and his Chiefs team prepared to play against his brother Jason and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Their mother, Donna, hilariously wore a 50-50 jersey consisting of Eagles green and Chiefs red for the game.
But this time, with the added dimension of Swift rushing back for the play, Kelce’s star will rise even higher.
However, the attention doesn’t seem to be a problem for him after dominating the game today in Baltimore and overall enjoying a highly impressive season with the Chiefs.
Kansas City will play the San Francisco 49ers after overturning a 17-point deficit against the Detroit Lions to book their own spot in Vegas.
But playing the Chiefs — who will now be at their fourth Super Bowl in five years — on the biggest stage of all is a different proposition altogether. For any team.
