NFL star Travis Kelce scored his first touchdown of the season on Sunday, prompting the announcer to pipe in a perfect reference.
The 33-year-old Kansas City Chiefs star is reportedly “hanging out” with Taylor Swift, and NFL fans witnessed announcer Ian Eagle’s next-level touchdown call hinting at the tight end’s love life.
Kelce played his first game of the season after missing the first week with a knee injury and scored his first touchdown early in the third quarter.
Kansas City faced the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, and Eagle was in action for CBS, thrilling fans with his touchdown call.
The NFL announcer referenced Swift’s “Blank Space” as Kelce crossed the end zone for a touchdown – one of the pop icon’s most popular songs.
“Kelce finds a blank space for the score,” Eagle said.
Fans flocked to social media with reactions to the epic tease.
One said: “I love the Taylor Swift references.”
Another: “I snorted and laughed.”

A fourth joked: “Taylor Swift is so happy at the moment.”
“Lol at the TSWIFT reference. “He found a blank space. “Great call,” said a fifth person.
There are rumors that Kelce and Swift were dating, but that may not be the case.
Travis’ brother Jason and the Philadelphia Eagle All-Pro center spoke about the situation following their Thursday Night Football win over the Minnesota Vikings.
He was asked about the rumors by NFL Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez Ask.
Jason replied, “I’ve seen those rumors. I can’t say anything about it.”
“Since Catching Kelce, everyone has been fascinated by Travis’ love life. I don’t really know what’s going on there.”
“I know Trav is having fun and we’ll see what happens with whoever he ends up with.”
The Chiefs defeated the Jaguars 17-9 in their Week 2 meeting and play at home against the Chicago Bears in Week 3.
