Taylor Swift’s game-day attendance is giving Travis Kelce the statistics of his wildest dreams.

The NFL player admitted on Wednesday’s episode of his “New Heights” podcast that it’s “hard to wrap [his] head around” his average yardage with the singer in the stands.

The athlete’s co-host and brother, Jason Kelce, shared the stat, saying it’s “good” to have the Grammy winner in the audience.

“When T. Swift is at the game, you’re averaging 99 yards,” the Philadelphia Eagles player said. “And when you’re left with only your friends and remaining family there, you are at 46.5 yards a game.”

Jason, 35, asked Travis whether he was “aware” of the difference.

“How can I not be?” the 34-year-old tight end asked, joking that he does worse when “left to his own devices.”

Jason went on to say that “not only is social media noticing” but Travis’ coach, Andy Reid, has taken note of the effect of Swift sitting in the stands for four out of the team’s last five games.

“He weighed in,” Jason explained, sharing Reid’s quote from a press conference Sunday after the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Los Angeles Chargers.

“Kelce is getting better with time,” the 65-year-old said over the weekend. “Taylor can stay around all she wants.”

Travis laughed off the comment, saying, “I love Coach Reid man. What a guy. Listen, when you’re getting Big Red’s approval and blessings, you know you’re doing something right.”

When Swift, 33, came up again in the podcast as Jason mentioned Dr. Howard Tucker wanting Travis to help him obtain an autograph, the “Catching Kelce” alum neglected to comment.

The former reality star told listeners in September that he planned to dial back any conversation about the performer “moving forward” since she is “not in the media as much.”

Last week, however, Travis did address a viral video of himself stepping in for Swift’s security guard to open the car door for her on a dinner date.

The “protective” two-time Super Bowl winner said, “I feel like whenever I’m on a date, I’m always having the sense [that] I’m a man in the situation.”

Swift has yet to comment on their romance.

The duo showed rare PDA at the time, holding hands on back-to-back New York City outings.

Swift and Travis — who called her his “good luck charm” earlier this month — did the same on Sunday while leaving the game before exiting Arrowhead Stadium in a golf cart and heading to a celebratory bash at his Kansas City, Mo., mansion.

While the pair have yet to define their relationship, Travis recently made headlines for pumping his fists when he was referred to as the songwriter’s “boyfriend.”
