NBC have leaned into the Taylor Swift-Travis Kelce hype by using one of the pop star’s songs for the Chiefs matchup at the Jets this Sunday night.
Swift and Kelce were spotted together for the first time as a couple last weekend, as the singer made the trip to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City to watch her new beau beat the Bears.
And with Swift reportedly set to be in attendance again this weekend to cheer on Kelce, NBC fittingly used her song ‘Welcome to New York’ in a Sunday Night Football teaser clip.
Of course, the video prominently features Kelce and includes the lyrics, ‘Welcome to New York, it’s been waiting for you.’
The clip was captioned ‘Taylor Made for Sunday Night’ on Twitter.

And NBC is leaning into the Taylor-Travis hype with one of their SNF teaser videos
The cheeky video comes after Fox was blocked by Swift’s record label and publishing company from using her music during their broadcast of Chiefs-Bears last weekend.
‘Earlier in the week, amid the avalanche of rumors, our bulldog associate producer Rich Gross had sought permission to use some of Swift’s music,’ NFL on Fox lead producer Richie Zyons wrote on FoxSports.com.
‘Per the FOX music department, Swift’s record label and publishing company denied our request ‘in conjunction with speculations on or about her private/personal/dating life.”
Nonetheless, Fox focused plenty on Swift during the Chiefs’ 41-10 win and NBC will be expected to do the same on Sunday night.
The game is expected to draw a massive audience after last week’s contest drew 24.3 million viewers – the highest total of the week.
Swift’s expected attendance this weekend has now caused ticket prices to rise by around 43%

And the demand to see the game in-person is massive as well.
Tickets to see the Jets hosting the Chiefs have risen in price by 43 percent after it emerged that Swift is set to be there, with the ‘get in’ price for tickets jumping from $83 to $119 on TickPick
TickPick also says that last Sunday’s game saw the highest amount of tickets sold for the Chiefs in a single day so far this season.
Kansas City and the Jets kick off at 8:20pm ET on Sunday
