Swifties have been winding up NFL fans by claiming that Taylor Swift has made Travis Kelce famous due to their apparent romance.

Rumors have been rampant about a potential spark between the singer and the football player, and their being seen together in the locker room after a Kansas City Chiefs game is only fueling the fire.

Taylor's love life is often a hot topic and she has dated some high-profile people in the past such as Harry Styles, Joe Jonas, and Tom Hiddleston.

Every Swiftie has their favorite ex - and for me, it's obviously Taylor Lautner.

One of the most common uncalled-for clapbacks that people who aren't fans of Taylor use is joking that whoever she dates will be made into an album.

So now Swifties are getting their revenge after years of torment, by winding up fans of the NFL by saying that nobody knew who Travis Kelce was before these romance rumors started swirling.

Videos of the trend have been going viral, and to be honest, they are quite funny - but they also show the level of knowledge that these NFL fans have when they're able to reel off Travis's career statistics without looking.

It goes without saying, that people did know who Travis was before these rumors because he is one of the greatest to play the game and his two Super Bowl wins have helped his fame.

But if we're being honest, the NFL isn't as big outside of the U.S. as it is in it, so more people from around the world have become aware of Travis' existence thanks to Taylor. I said what I said.

So while the claims that the global megastar put the NFL superstar "on the map" might be pretty unfounded because he's forged an incredible career in his own right - his name is definitely now being mentioned by people not familiar with football.

Speculation about a possible romantic connection between the singer and NFL star began when Travis revealed that he gave Taylor his phone number after attending one of her Eras Tour shows in July.

During a podcast with his brother, Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles, he mentioned his attempt to offer her a friendship bracelet with his contact information.

Further fueling the rumors, Travis recently discussed his plan to capture Taylor's attention during an interview on The Pat McAfee Show, stating: "I threw it out there. I threw the ball in her court. I told her, 'I've seen you rock the stage in Arrowhead [Stadium], you might have to come see me rock the stage in Arrowhead and see which one is a little more lit.'"

The pair are yet to confirm their romance, but that won't stop Swifties from winding up the NFL community in the meantime.
