Jason Kelce has a bone to pick with Taylor Swift fans!

The Philadelphia Eagles center, 36, joked on the latest episode of the New Heights Podcast with Jason and Travis Kelce that Swifties skewed the votes on the podcast’s “NFL Best Team Name Bracket” by voting for the Kansas CIty Chiefs.

“The Swifties have this unrealistic infatuation with the Chiefs and Travis Kelce, and they’re only voting based on their love for you, not on their love for the team name,” Jason quipped to brother Travis Kelce. “So it wasn’t a realistic representation.”

In return, the Chiefs tight end accused his brother of tilting votes in favor of the Buffalo Bills, and claimed he “completely screwed the Chiefs out of winning.”

Jason jokingly noted that because he “campaigned” for the Bills to win over the Chiefs, the Swifties retaliated by voting for the Minnesota Vikings over his team the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Why the f--- are you blaming all the losses on the [Swifties]?,” Travis said while laughing.

“Well the Swifites got very upset, they don’t understand our politics,” Jason teased. “So, they got really [accusatory] of me manipulating votes.”

Jason later changed his tune, however, and asked Swift's fans for their help when the brothers noted in their podcast that they were nominated for podcast of the year, best sports podcast and best overall ensemble at the iHeartRadio Podcast Awards.

“Swifites we’re talking to you right now, lets rig this vote,” Jason jokingly pleaded with fans. “This is not for me, this is for Travis. Please go and vote for the New Heights show as the podcast of the year.”

Travis chimed in, “92 percenters you know what to do.”

Despite all his jokes, Jason has only had positive things to say about the “Anti-Hero” singer and her relationship with his brother.

"I've been fortunate to meet Taylor now,” Jason said in an NFL interview at the 2024 Pro Bowl. “She's [an] awesome, genuine, down-to-earth person, which has been great to see, whenever you're seeing anyone of that caliber of stardom.”

He added that even though his family is receiving more media attention now, the only thing he's concerned about is Travis' happiness.

"My brother and his love life is definitely the topic of the NFL right now, and my whole thing with that is as long as Trav is happy and enjoying life, I'm happy and enjoying life," Jason continued.
