Taylor Swift attended boyfriend Travis Kelce’s game as the Kansas City Chiefs faced off against the New England Patriots on Sunday night. Naturally, broadcasters put the “You Belong With Me” singer on the big screen multiple times.

Not only was the entire audience at Gillette Stadium staring up at her, but tons of Sunday Night Football viewers and Swifties alike had their eyes glued on the 33-year-old. The star tight end also was in awe of his girlfriend, who was named Time’s Person of the Year earlier this month.

On a recent episode of New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, the 34-year-old gushed about Swift to his brother, Jason Kelce, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles.

“I mean, you don’t see an entire home team fan base go insane for somebody wearing the opposite team’s colors... it just shows you how amazing that girl is,” Travis recalled. “[Fans] went absolutely insane when they showed Taylor on the screen. I was trying to keep my cool. I was like, ‘Don’t show your cards, don’t show your cards.’ It was fun, man. Shout out to the Patriots, New England. Taylor [is] on record saying that that stadium is one of the funnest that she’s played at. So shout out to the Patriots for doing that. [There] might have been a few Brads and Chads that were booing, [but] for the most part everybody was f------ screaming their tail off for her.”
