“We got to get to Patrick Mahomes and man, that’s a hard task,” Rice told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. “And Travis Kelce, I would double him 100% and also, Taylor Swift. I would double her 100%. We don’t want Travis to get going because every time Travis is going, then the camera goes up to the box with Taylor Swift. 

“So, we gotta change that and if we do that I feel like we have a legitimate chance.”
