The Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots meet up in Foxboro on Sunday in what is likely the most anticipated matchup of the weekend between these AFC powers.
The Chiefs look to stay undefeated and move to 6-0 with a road win against the Patriots on Sunday and after their beat down on opening night last season you can be sure that Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will have the Pats ready. However, the Chiefs have one of the league’s best coaches in their own right as Andy Reid has this team off and running and with the pieces they have on offense the Patriots know they are going to be in tough as Patrick Mahomes, Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce and company have looked like Super Bowl contenders so far this season. Kansas City needs to take advantage of New England’s weak offensive line and find a way to keep Brady on edge but even so this one has the makings of being a classic.
The Patriots meanwhile should feature a heavy dose of Sony Michel in this game as the Chiefs defense has been weak this season and has allowed bunches of yards both on the ground and through the air this season and on the road in a revenge spot for the Pats that is never a good combination. New England is rolling right now after a slow start and while competition in the AFC East still doesn’t seem to be a threat to them they know if they’re going to have the playoffs run through Foxboro this is a must win type of game.
The Chiefs are undefeated this season and have had their question marks while New England is moving in the right direction and will look to send a message to the rest of the league that they are still the team to beat in the AFC. In the end this one figures to be a close contest and getting any points with an undefeated team seems to be the play especially with how they manhandled the Pats last season.
