Taylor Swift and Aaron Rodgers among celebrity fans at the game

The game was attended by several celebrities, who cheered on their favorite teams from the stands. Among them were pop star Taylor Swift and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who are both fans of the Chiefs. Swift posted a video on her Instagram story of her singing along to her song “You Belong With Me” as it played on the stadium speakers. She also shared a photo of her wearing a Chiefs jersey with Mahomes’ number 15 on it.

Rodgers, who is dating actress Shailene Woodley, was also spotted wearing a Chiefs hat and a jacket with Mahomes’ name on it. He was seen chatting with Mahomes’ fiancee Brittany Matthews, who is pregnant with their second child. Rodgers and Mahomes have a mutual respect for each other, as they are both considered among the best quarterbacks in the league.

Other celebrities who were at the game included actor Paul Rudd, comedian David Spade, rapper Travis Scott, and model Gigi Hadid. They all showed their support for either the Chiefs or the Jets on social media.

Chiefs overcome injuries and penalties to secure victory

The Chiefs had to overcome some adversity to win the game, as they dealt with injuries and penalties throughout the night. They lost two of their starting offensive linemen, Orlando Brown Jr. and Joe Thuney, to injuries in the first half. They also had 11 penalties for 86 yards, including some costly ones that negated big plays or extended Jets drives.

However, the Chiefs showed their resilience and depth, as they managed to score enough points to hold off the Jets. They also got some key stops on defense, especially in the fourth quarter when they forced a turnover on downs and an interception to seal the win. The Chiefs’ defense sacked Wilson four times and hit him nine times.

The Chiefs will look to continue their winning streak next week when they host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football. The Jets will try to bounce back when they visit the Atlanta Falcons in London.
