The New England Patriots (3-2) take on Patrick Mahomes II and the Kansas City Chiefs (5-0) in a Sunday night showdown at Gillette Stadium. The Chiefs rolled to 31 second-half points on the road against a Bill Belichick-coached defense.
What was the mindset down 33-30, knowing deep down that they need to keep scoring at will to have a chance at the win?
Vikings 27, Cardinals 17 • In Minneapolis, Latavius Murray helped Minnesota revive its running attack with 155 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries, wearing down the Cardinals.
The Chiefs used an interesting pass-rush strategy against Brady and the Patriots past year, a 42-27 victory for Kansas City in Week 1.
Mahomes countered with 352 yards passing, going 23 of 36 with four touchdowns and two interceptions. Mahomes threw four second-half touchdown passes. It worked twice for big gains on the first drive but not on the second.
That was just fine with the Chiefs, who silenced the crowd when rookie Tremon Smith returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards to the Patriots 3 yard-line.
The last game of this week's NFL Sunday is live on Sky Sports with the match scheduled to begin at 1.20am. It got a spark from who's become an unlikely source in recent weeks. Hogan hadn't come up big much for the Patriots before that play, but perhaps it was the play he needed to get himself going in what's been a surprisingly down season for the receiver.
"We were making plays", said Brady. And he made that play with his legs. "They had one timeout left, and it gave us a little time to go down and kick the field goal". But the Chiefs had other plans. Hunt rushed for 38 yards on five attempts in the first half while Hill was held to three receptions for 43 yards and Mahomes threw for 164 yards on 14-for-23 passing.
The Super Bowl banners are displayed before a game between the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium on November 26, 2017 in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Three plays later, Mahomes hit Hill for a 14-yard touchdown at 1:03 of the third and the Pats lead was down to 27-26. It was too big of a play in too short of a time.
If you thought this game would be in the 20s already, don't feel bad. You know, just like everyone predicted. DraftKings is offering multiple great options on their showdown slate and I'll be breaking down the games, picks and top targets. They'll take on the Chicago Bears in Week 7.
"It's tough to slow those guys down, they've been scoring a lot of points all year", Brady said. Brady also passed former teammate Adam Vinatieri for most career wins in the regular season and playoffs combined with 227. "It took us right down to the last three seconds". "I think we have no problem grinding it out". "That's what the football season's all about". "I think we can play a lot better, and I think that's what we plan to do".
