Taylor Swift, Travis Kelce break NFL WAG curse: Jessica Simpson, Carrie Underwood once blamed for losses

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce's new relationship fills the blank space that the NFL needs to recover from the alleged curse when Hollywood stars date football players.

Taylor Swift has that look in her eye for Travis Kelce, and the Kansas City Chiefs hope ther new romance doesn't go out of style anytime soon.

Unlike previous celebrity WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends) who faced scrutiny for supporting their football player beaus, Swift has proven to be somewhat of a lucky charm for the Chiefs as they pulled off their fourth win with the "Cruel Summer" singer in the stands, and sixth in a row as a team.

While Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift's love story is in a brand-new era, Jessica Simpson, Carrie Underwood and Kristin Cavallari are just a few of the famous WAGs who fans considered to have a negative effect on the game due to their relationships.

Dallas Cowboys fans took umbrage with Tony Romo's relationship with Jessica Simpson in 2007, and blamed the singer for the organization's losing streak.

Simpson attended a Cowboys game wearing a pink No. 9 Romo jersey in December 2007 when the team not only lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, but Romo also played statistically the worst game of his career.

At the time, Terrell Owens told ESPN, "Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite - in this locker room or in Texas Stadium."

He later clarified, "Man, I was joking. Everyone was laughing, right?"

Fans coined Simpson "Yoko Romo" and the "Jessica Simpson Curse" was born.

One month later, Jessica and Tony were seen in Cabo San Lucas before a playoff game. The Cowboys then went on to lose the 2008 playoffs against the New York Giants.

Simpson and Romo broke up in 2009, allegedly with the quarterback ending things the night before her 29th birthday.

Oddly enough, the worst game Romo had prior to his Eagles flop was the year before when he was dating Carrie Underwood.

"With everything that has happened, obviously with the way Tony played and the comparison between her and Carrie Underwood, I think a lot of people feel she has taken his focus away," Owens told ESPN at the time.

The country music star reportedly began dating the quarterback in 2006. They were last linked together in the spring of 2007 when they walked the red carpet at the ACM Awards.

They never revealed why they broke up.

When asked if she would ever write a song about him, Underwood simply said "no."

"I would never immortalize a guy that did me wrong," she said in an Esquire interview. "I would never give him that much credit."

Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was on the receiving end of criticism when his relationship with reality star Kristin Cavallari went public in 2010.

When Cutler proposed to Cavallari – via text message – she was pregnant with their first child. 

During the 2013 season, Cutler recorded one of his lowest average passing yards. It was the same year he married "The Hills" star.

The former couple eventually split in 2020. Their divorce was finalized in June 2022.

In 2015, Swift faced scrutiny from the Los Angeles Kings after she received a banner at the Staples Center to celebrate her record for most sold out shows at the stadium.

The Kings won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014, and the devoted hockey fans believed Swift's banner at the stadium brought bad luck to the team since they failed to win a playoff series after it went up.

In 2019, the organization announced they were covering up the banner for the home-opener following complaints.

"The connection to our fans is our highest priority and through our engagement, they have made it clear that the banner shouldn’t be part of their Kings game experience," Michael Altieri, senior VP of marketing, communications, and content for the Kings and AEG Sports told the Los Angeles Times. "We didn’t see an issue in covering it for our games and in fact see it as an opportunity to show our fans that we hear them."

In the middle of the 2020 season, Swift's flag was mysteriously missing from the downtown Los Angeles arena.

However, the "Midnights" singer has become a fan-favorite at the Chiefs games, and made her debut as one of Kelce's guests at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City on Sept. 24.

Behavioral analyst Susan Constantine explained to Fox News Digital that Kelce is "a gentleman and a protector" as she described how the professional football player moved with intention to help Taylor on a recent date night in New York City.

"This couple's body language shows a strong love connection," Constantine said. "Kelce's parents have taught Travis right!"

Taylor's gearing up for a big week, too. Swifties can anticipate new music on Oct. 27 when Taylor releases her next re-recorded album, "1989 (Taylor's Version)."
