What to know about the Kansas City Chiefs (8-4)
The Chiefs hit two birds with one stone in Week 14. By beating the Oakland Raiders, 40-9, at home last Sunday, the Chiefs didn’t just add another win to their record but also widened their lead atop the AFC West division between them and the second-place Oakland.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes didn’t have to do much for Kansas City to get the win, passing for only 175 yards (15/29) and a touchdown, while also rushing for 25 yards and a score. The defense stepped up for Kansas City, as they kept Oakland in check, forcing the Raiders to pick up three turnovers.
The Patriots have had troubles against dual-threat quarterbacks this season, losing to Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson — a trend that points to an advantage by Kansas City, which has Mahomes expected to be busy on air and on the ground in Foxboro.
What to know about the New England Patriots (10-2)
Is Tom Brady washed? Not a few have declared that following the Pats’ 28-22 road loss to the Houston Texans in Week 14. Brady still passed for 326 yards and three touchdowns with an interception, but it was clear that the Pats’ offense wasn’t performing fluidly with the future Hall of Famer under center.
That being said, it’s hard to imagine Bill Belichick starting another quarterback, a move that would raise hell in Foxboro at the very least. For now, the Patriots will look to get their defense ready in anticipation of the arrival of the reigning league MVP and the Chiefs.
The Patriots have the best scoring defense in the NFL with opponents coming up with only 12.1 points per game. They are also producing just 258.0 total yards per game, second-fewest in the league.
