Patriots streaking, Chiefs hoping not to repeat history

The greatest quarterback the sport has ever seen, Tom Brady, beat the greatest quarterback of the league's pass-happy 2018 season, Mahomes.

That cut the Patriots' lead to 27-26 in the third quarter.

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs suffered their first loss of the season.

Fortunately, neither could Tom Brady or his weapons.

After Kansas City Chiefs speedster Tyreek Hill stung the New England Patriots with his third touchdown reception Sunday, he ran through the end zone to the stands at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

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?

"That's how he always finishes out the game". And time was the most valuable commodity in a game every player in the victorious locker room said they knew would take all 60 minutes to win.

"There wasn't a lot of margin of error", Brady said during a postgame interview with NBC.

The obvious problem for the Chiefs in this game was the defense.

"Coach stressed it all week, if you get in 1-on-1 situations you gotta win, so that was my mindset", said White. If he gets anybody in that position, more than likely he's going to be gone. On the next play, he hit Hogan, again, for 19 yards. That play had plenty of people wondering if Speaks bet the over for this game or was simply a huge Patriots' fan, but he had a much more controversial reason for letting Brady go.

Brady: "Yeah, he made some big ones". So, he made a great play. "I missed some throws even when there was pressure that we could have scored on and I feel like as the game went on I just kept making the reads and throwing the ball and I started connecting on the ones later".

Tom Brady throws a pass Sunday night against the Chiefs.

"No, that is just football", he said when asked about his lack of production.

It was the first loss of the season for the Chiefs (5-1), who were again let down by a defense that came in allowing an NFL-worst 462 yards per game. But the Chiefs had other plans. Probably not. But you can bet plays like Tyreek Hill's 75-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter will not happen. Do some more math and it looks pretty certain last night's game is clearing 20 million viewers at the very least.

After the only punt of the game led to a New England field goal to put the Patriots up seven points, K.C. got the ball back with 3:15 on the clock. It was too big of a play in too short of a time.
