Jason Kelce stole the limelight from popstar Taylor Swift as he celebrated his brother Travis’ win with rowdy, shirtless beer-chugging at Highmark Stadium on Sunday night.
The Philadelphia Eagles player, who teased his retirement last week, even showed up to a Buffalo Bills tailgate before the intense playoff game – as he downed beer in front of whooping fans in a parking lot.
When he got into the VIP suite with Taylor Swift, he soon took off his shirt and continued downing beers as the Chiefs racked up points on the scoreboard.
Before long, Jason was shirtless and storming through the window of the VIP suite, pounding his chest and screaming at the top of his lungs. His euphoria, despite the freezing January weather, continued after Travis scored a 22-yard touchdown.
Bills fans were left stunned when Jason suddenly jumped down into their section – Bud Light in hand – to continue his half-naked celebrations.

Cameras have become accustomed to panning on popstar Taylor in the months since she confirmed her new relationship with the Tight End – but all eyes were on Travis’ brother on Sunday, whose team was kicked out of the play offs last week.
After the Chiefs’ victorious win, Jason wrote on social media: ‘Buffalo is awesome, the energy is contagious. Such an incredible experience!!’
He attached a screenshot of his phone, where he’d got a text from his mother that read: ‘Ellie [his daughter] said dad’s boobs are showing!’
Taylor Swift was joined by Jason’s wife Kylie Kelce, Brittany Mahomes, Cara Delevingne, Ashley Avignone in the suite – cheering together and posing for photos after the Chiefs’ sensational win.
After Travis Kelce scored his first touchdown of the game, his first in eight games, he was seen holding his hands in a heart sign in the direction of the luxury box with his girlfriend and family.
Kelce’s team won 27-24 in an all-time thrilling playoff matchup on from Highmark Stadium. The Chiefs are now just one game away from the Super Bowl.
Jason Kelce’s stunt in the VIP box, however, did not go down well with all NFL fans – as some pointed out that he may have been trying to just outshine Taylor, who has recently been having all-eyes on her at the games.
This was also the first time Jason and his brother’s girlfriend Taylor Swift were seen publicly together. They shared a few moments of mutual support as they high-fived each other on camera.

One person on social media wrote: ‘Looks like he needed some spotlight.’
Another complained: ‘Just shows the rules don’t apply to the rich entitled people. If the average Joe would have done that they would have been either arrested or kicked out.
‘Rich people disgust me. Or better yet had the average Joe got close to those windows yap arrested.’
A third said: ‘I wonder how the Taylor Swift fans feel about Jason Kelce stealing the spotlight in Buffalo.’
And another added: ‘No one takes the NFL’s spotlight from Taylor Swift. *Jason Kelce has entered the chat*’
One person online complained: ‘Dude, put your shirt back on….’
And another added: ‘Making an a** of himself, of course under the influence. He sure wants attention.’

Others on social media wrote: ‘The Kelce family sure does love attention. They’ll both end up in Hollywood after football, no doubt.’
As a joke, one person suggested what should happen at the Super Bowl: ‘I’m sorry, but the only sensible Super Bowl halftime show is Taylor Swift singing while Jason Kelce dances shirtless.’
Talking after the game, Travis Kelce told CBS Sports: ‘My brother was shirtless? Nah, it doesn’t surprise me one bit.
‘I love that guy, and every time we’re not on the field together, we’re always rooting for each other.’
Pop sensation Swift was seen entering the Buffalo Bills‘ stadium wearing a red beanie amid the wintery weather – but instead of cheers, she was greeted by boos from the crowd.
The boos were not only heard outside the stadium, but fans apparently showed their distain as TV coverage panned to Taylor on screens in bars across New York.
One person wrote online: ‘The vitriolic shower of boos when Taylor Swift was shown on the screen for the first time… truly filled my heart.’
Another person, watching the game at a bar, wrote: ‘The whole bar boo’d once they showed Taylor Swift lmaooo.’

Another commented: ‘This game might be the only time a bar in Hell’s Kitchen has had everyone boo at taylor swift.’ Hell’s Kitchen is an area in New York City known for its gay nightlife and bars.
Taylor has been attending the Chief’s games since the beginning of the season, before confirming her relationship with the team’s Tight End towards the end of 2023.
Landing in her private jet around 4pm on Sunday, Swift was met on the tarmac by a cavalcade of SUVs, a sprinter van and a police escort. She was then soon pictured arriving at Highmark Stadium in a red hat and a white jacket for the game.
While temperatures dropped below 20 degrees for the game on Sunday night, it was nothing compared to the blistering -4 temperature in Kansas City last weekend, when Taylor cheered the Chiefs to victory against the Miami Dolphins.
Exclusive DailyMail.Com pictures earlier on Sunday showed Travis’s older brother Jason touching down in Buffalo alongside his wife, Kylie, and their parents Donna and Ed for the game.

She landed shortly after Travis was pictured arriving at Highmark Stadium with his Chiefs team for the big game.
The 34-year-old tight end was wearing a mustard suit and red woolly hat as his made his way into the stadium for his team’s must-win game.
At a Chiefs press conference on Friday previewing the Bills game, Travis said how excited he is to line up against the hardcore Bills fans.
‘It’s Bills Mafia, man. That’s their home-field advantage. I’m sure the guys love playing for that fan base,’ he told reporters back in Kansas City.
‘I grew up in Cleveland man. They were throwing beer bottles at people. Buffalo, cold, playoff game, doesn’t get any better baby.’
The Chiefs will now go on the road to face the Ravens for the AFC Championship next Sunday at 3 p.m. from M&T Bank Stadium. Baltimore did not face Kansas City in the regular season.
The Chiefs have not faced the Ravens since 2010, meaning likely league MVP and Patrick Mahomes have never faced in the postseason.
