Bills Mafia, Taylor Swift, have a meeting. Collide between two of the most devoted fan populations. The NFL playoffs are the subject of this “love story.”
It is indeed occurring. Swift is currently in Buffalo. (She has been absent from a tour since 2011.)
On Sunday, the pop icon will attend Highmark Stadium to witness the Buffalo Bills face the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round. NFL Hall of Famer Brett Favre: If the Chiefs lose in the playoffs, Taylor Swift will take the fall
At approximately 5:00 p.m., Swift departed a white Chevrolet Suburban bearing California license plates. Dozens of admirers gathered in the snow in an attempt to capture a glimpse of the celebrity. She was accompanied by Brittany Mahomes, the spouse of Patrick Mahomes.
She grinned in response to boos, “Go Bills” and “Bills by a billion” shouts, and a few applauses from the audience. Swift was attired in black trousers, a red beanie, and a white and red jacket from the Kilo Kish Blank Canvas Project collection by GANT. She greeted the group with a kiss after waving to the spectators and before proceeding to the west end zone suite entrance.
Around 4:00 p.m., Swift disembarked from Buffalo Niagara International Airport in her private aircraft. A police escort and multiple SUVs were awaiting her. Jason Kelce, brother of Travis Kelce and a Pro Bowl center, and his parents, Donna and Ed Kelce, arrived in Buffalo earlier on Sunday in the company of his wife, Kylie.
Swift has been a pillar for the Chiefs throughout the remainder of the regular season and postseason. She has been in attendance at six of the Chiefs’ last seven games, including the Chiefs’ wild-card round victory over the Miami Dolphins (26-7). It was the fourth-coldest contest in NFL history, with a wind chill of -27 degrees and a temperature of -4 degrees at kickoff.
This year, she has attended two Bills vs. Chiefs games. Week 14 saw Buffalo visit GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, where it emerged victorious 20-17. Since then, the Bills have not suffered a loss.

Taylor Swift is from western New York with family
Eleanor Mayer, the great-grandmother of Taylor Swift, reportedly resided in Dunkirk, which is located approximately 40 miles southwest of Orchard Park, as reported by The Observer and Discovering Buffalo One Street at a Time. Mayer operated the town’s Mayer Music Store. Swift’s great-great-grandparents, Julia and Delia Mayer, the parents of Eleanor, originated from Batavia.
