SNL returns with a hilarious spoof of the NFL, Travis Kelce & Taylor Swift

Former cast member Pete Davidson hosted SNL's return this week and the first sketch of the night took on the attention the NFL is paying to the matchup of Taylor Swift and her beau Travis Kelce (by the way, they both made a cameo appearance in the show...see the videos below)

 Taylor Swift/NFL mania, via a parody of Fox’s NFL Sunday team. As the anchors tried to outdo each other with their Swift fandom, the sketch ended with a cameo by Travis Kelce himself — the Kansas City Chiefs tight end at the center of the brouhaha.

Fox NFL anchor Curt Menefee, played by Kenan Thompson, grows increasingly frustrated as his co-anchors Terry Bradshaw (Molly Kearney), Howie Long (Mikey Day), Michael Strahan (Devon Walker) and Jimmy Johnson (James Austin Johnson) reveal their love of Swift.

When Menefee refers to “Bad Blood,” and then his co-anchors break into the Swift song, Thompson-as-Menefee has had enough: “You know what, I’m done. When we get back, we’re going to speak to someone who actually wants to talk football,” he says.

Kelce (who had hosted an “SNL” episode last season, before all of this) was in the house, and appeared in his cameo. On the internet, fans immediately speculated that Kelce was in town to watch his brother, Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, take on the New York Jets. Little did the audience know, Swift would make her own cameo in the episode later on.

Well done. Very funny. Watch!

Following the broadcast both Swift and Kelce attended the SNL after-party.
