So far, Sunday's AFC Championship game has lived up to the hype. And that's saying something, considering how excited NFL fans already were to watch this year's presumptive-MVP Lamar Jackson, and one of the NFL's best defenses take on Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the rest of the Chiefs with a spot in the Super Bowl on the line. It even started before kickoff, when Justin Tucker, Mahomes, and Kelce got into it a little bit while on the field for pregame warmups. Then, to start things off, both two sides traded impressive drives. First the Chiefs marched down the field on a 10-play, 86-yard drive that ended with a Travis Kelce touchdown. Not to be outdone, the Ravens answered on the next drive, thanks mostly to a Lamar Jackson play that is probably a contender for play of the year.
After the play, as Flowers was celebrating, CBS' cameras originally panned to a shot of fans in the seats at M&T Bank Stadium. They did manage to catch some of the Ravens' team celebration though, and the keen-eyed among those on the internet noticed something very specific, because nothing ever gets past the internet:
In the Ravens' defense, maybe the whole plan all along was to swag surf after the first touchdown, and it has nothing to do with that video of Taylor Swift swag surfing from a box at Arrowhead Stadium earlier this season. Maybe it was just a coincidence that they did the exact same dance that Taylor Swift did. That is a thing that is technically possible. Stranger things have happened. Twitter seems pretty convinced, however:
So who knows. Did the Ravens troll Taylor Swift with their touchdown celebration in the AFC Championship game? Or was it simply a coincidence that their first touchdown celebration was the exact same dance from the video that went viral. No one will ever know for sure.
