Aaron Rodgers won't be taking the field any time soon but the price of New York Jets tickets are higher than usual. It may as well be the Taylor Swift effect.
Swift lives in New York City and after her appearance at the Chiefs game in Kansas City last week, Swifties are buying up the tickets for a chance to see the 12-time Grammy Award-winner after dating rumors started swirling with her and Kansas City Chiefs tight end's Travis Kelce.

Nosebleed seats in the endzone are going for $120. The lowest price for home games is usually half that.
Kelce called an appearance by Taylor Swift at the Chiefs' victory over the Chicago Bears last weekend pretty bold, but the All-Pro tight end insisted Wednesday that he wants to keep future details about their relationship private.
Kelce acknowledged on his podcast Wednesday the widespread interest in him with Swift, adding that he has seen paparazzi suddenly staking out his Kansas City-area home.
Jersey sales for Kelce spiked before and after last Sunday's game, a spokesperson for apparel and merchandise company Fanatics told The Associated Press, making his No. 87 one of the five top-selling jerseys over the weekend.
“Sounds like the Swifties are also part of Chiefs Kingdom,” Kelce said.
Associated Press wire reports contributed to this story.
