Since then, the Jets have struggled with Jack Wilson at quarterback and lost their last two games.
Meanwhile, Kells is relatively quiet about what’s going on at Swift.

‘Moreover, the day is definitely perfect for CM fans. Ladies and gentlemen we script it all. It was interesting.
‘To see the slow motion chest bumps, to see the high fives with mum, to see how excited the Chiefs Kingdom was, she was there, it was absolutely crazy, it’s definitely a game I’ll remember, that’s for sure,’ Travis added. “Then we finally collapsed in the exit car…
‘Shout out to Taylor for watching me rock the stage.’
