NFL Hall of Famer Brett Favre: If the Chiefs lose in the playoffs, Taylor Swift will take the fall



In these NFL playoffs, Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre had high expectations for the Kansas City Chiefs, and for good reason—after they defeated the Miami Dolphins in bitter cold to advance to the Divisional Round the next week.

However, he is aware that Taylor Swift will be held accountable if the Chiefs lose during the playoffs.

Naturally, since Swift has been sighted at games this NFL season, her friendship with Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce has garnered national attention.

This included Swift’s appearance on Saturday night, when she was seen wearing a personalized No. 87 jacket for Kelce, made for her and Patrick Mahomes’ wife, Brittany, by San Francisco 49ers star Kyle Juszczyk’s wife, Kristin, to withstand the bitterly cold Midwest weather.

In their first playoff game, the Chiefs triumphed over the Dolphins 26-7, with Kelce having his most productive game in the previous four weeks with seven receptions on ten targets for 71 yards.

But Kansas City will face some formidable opposition, and Favre senses that if the Chiefs lose, people will be angry just because of Swift’s presence.

In an interview with TMZ Sports, Favre stated, “I think it’ll be a distraction if they don’t make it to the Super Bowl.” “It is among those situations. I can’t speak for them, but if they don’t win it or advance to the Super Bowl, then people will point fingers. So let’s see.”

Many people thought that Kelce’s relationship would negatively impact his performance this season. But in 15 games, he caught 93 passes for 984 yards and five scores. He had to miss some time, including the season opener against the Detroit Lions, but it did break the streak of at least 1,000 yards totaled in the previous seven seasons.

On the stat sheet, Kelce has struggled the past few weeks; his totals of 16, 44, and 28 yards, respectively, are below his typical productivity on game days. Throughout the year, he has also been observed with unexpected declines.

However, he will be the first to tell you that it is not acceptable to allow a well-made Mahomes throw to go unpunished. Despite the chaos in the media, Kelce has maintained his high standards of accountability, something he takes pride in both on and off the field.

To put it mildly, the Chiefs’ season has been unusual, but they did win the AFC West, and quarterback Brett Favre thinks the team should be regarded as a Super Bowl contender until he leaves.

“Until [Chiefs head coach] Andy Reid is unseated as the champion, I have to see it to believe it,” Favre said.

“Until someone proves me otherwise, I think they’ll go all the way.”

Due to the way quarterback Lamar Jackson and company have been playing lately, Favre did mention the Baltimore Ravens, who are currently the best seed in the AFC, as a team that could unseat the Chiefs. The Ravens defeated the 49ers, Dolphins, and other elite teams to secure their first-round bye into the playoffs, despite never facing the Chiefs in the regular season.

The Buffalo Bills are another team that needs to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild-card round in order to advance. Josh Allen would face the Chiefs in the playoffs if Buffalo prevails, with the team’s ultimate goal being to defeat Mahomes.

In the end, it will all come down to the play on the field, something that Mahomes, Kelce, and the Chiefs players fully understand.

Even though the scapegoat is staying in a stadium suite, there might be some fans already in line to be that person.
