The Kansas City Chiefs are undefeated in the Taylor Swift era.

On Sunday, Kansas City beat New York at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., behind an uneven but clutch performance from star quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs victory marked the second game that pop superstar Swift, 33, attended amid her rumored romance with tight end Kelce, also 33.

Kelce had six receptions for 60 yards. But the stars of the offense were Mahomes, who passed for 203 yards and rushed for an additional 51 yards, and Isiah Pacheco, a New Jersey native who rushed for 115 yards and a touchdown in his return to his home state.

Despite the 41-10 win over the Chicago Bears, the game especially captivated female viewers, ages 12 to 49, the network reported.

Earlier this month, the NFL star told PEOPLE, "I think every single week we're going to get everybody's best shot, and we kind of earned that last year and earned that respect," he says. "So I'm excited for it. I always want to play everybody when they're at their best. And sure enough, I know we'll be getting that week in, week out here in Kansas City."

Kelce was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round in 2013. Alongside star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, he's won two Super Bowl championships.
