The biggest news in the NFL world isn't the Miami Dolphins' historic 70-point performance. It's not the Green Bay Packers' stunning fourth-quarter comeback against the New Orleans Saints. It's not the juggernaut Dallas Cowboys falling to a team projected to be the worst in the league.

It's Taylor Swift. More specifically, it's Taylor Swift showing up at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium to watch her rumored new beau Travis Kelce's Chiefs defeat the Chicago Bears. It was a 41-10 shellacking, and Swift heartily cheered along — even letting go a "LFG" for a Kelce touchdown — from a suite alongside Kelce's mother.

Swifties, of course, are all over this potential relationship. To be clear, there's no surefire sign this relationship is romantic in nature — though, Kelce had previously publicly discussed his interest in the singer — but that hasn't stopped Swift fans from stanning. And that is the general consensus, it seems, among Swifties: They like the idea of the relationship, even if they're maybe getting, let's say, over-involved, as Swifties often do.

But what about NFL fans? Well, they seem to love it, too. And the jokes have been fantastic.

NFL fans understood the power Swifties have to anything. Even fix a terrible quarterback.

There were jokes about weaponizing Swifties.

The best NFL coach of all time noted his love for Taylor.

There were the usual plain old silly jokes.

And jokes about Kelce's public pursuit paying off.

And there were a lot of inside-football jokes.

Where things go from here, no one knows. But the Chiefs next play on Sunday against the New York Jets. And do you know who just happens to spend a lot of time in New York City? Taylor freaking Swift.
