At least one person is hoping Taylor Swift has a “Sad Beautiful Tragic” moment Sunday night.
During Friday night’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” CNN senior data reporter Harry Enten was doing a live hit from outside Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y. and said he hopes the pop sensation is in tears at the end of the Chiefs’ matchup against Buffalo in the AFC divisional round.
While holding a shovel and wearing some Bills gear, Enten added that he’s a big Swiftie — but that’s he’s a bigger supporter of the Bills.
“I will note the Bills have already beaten the Chiefs in Kansas City when Taylor Swift showed up,” Enten said. “So while I do enjoy Taylor Swift’s music, as I know you do — we’re both Swifties at heart — I’m hoping she’s probably crying at the end of Sunday because that’ll mean my Buffalo Bills have won.”

“So this is the one time I am rooting against Taylor Swift. I am sorry, Swifties, I’ve got to do it.”
Cooper did not hold back with how he felt with Enten’s words against the “Cruel Summer” singer.
“Wow, that’s kind of harsh,” Cooper assessed.

As Enten noted, the Chiefs fell to the Bills, 20-17, on Dec. 10 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City with Swift in attendance.
Swift’s beau, Travis Kelce, did finish with six catches and 83 yards that game, but the Bills had the last laugh with the victory.
That game was a turning point for Buffalo, as it was the Bills’ first of five straight wins to end the season, leading them to overtake the Dolphins for the AFC East title.
That proved important for both team’s in Sunday’s matchup in that it meant that the Chiefs will go on the road for this week’s AFC divisional round clash, the first time quarterback Patrick Mahomes will play a road playoff game in his career.
Temperatures on Sunday in Orchard Park are expected to hit a high of 24 degrees with a low of 18, according to Weather.com, which might actually feel balmy for the Chiefs after their postseason opener.

Last Saturday against the Dolphins, Kansas City kicked off in sub-zero temps, hitting as low as minus-8 degrees.
Multiples fans were transported from Arrowhead Stadium with frostbite or hypothermia, while head coach Andy Reid was seen on the sidelines growing icicles from his mustache.
Now, Kelce, Mahomes and the Chiefs — as rare underdogs — will try to win their third straight playoff game against the Bills, whom they toppled in the 2020 and 2021 postseasons.
