Tom Brady throws a pass Sunday night against the Chiefs.
It didn't take Josh Gordon long to take up residence in Tom Brady's circle of trust.
The Chiefs aren't going to finish unbeaten this season.
Everything changed in the second half. They have created the holes and the coverage for this top-ranked scoring offense.
Brady found running back James White for a 17-yard gain to start the possession. "Stick together as a team, as an offense, take control of the game, melt some of the clock away and finish it off".
Since that Monday Night Football debacle for Brady at Arrowhead on September 29, 2014, he and the Patriots have won two Super Bowls and played in three. With the Chiefs driving, and at the 15-yard line, Duron Harmon intercepted Mahomes in the end zone with 17 seconds left in the first half. The over/under is set at 58 points, and the game will air at 7:20 PM CT on NBC.
The eye test says the Chiefs look like the better team. The Patriots had the football last. It got a spark from who's become an unlikely source in recent weeks.
Brady connected with receiver Chris Hogan on consecutive plays during the drive. "I think we can play a lot better and I think that's what we plan to do". And he made that play with his legs.
They needed to possess the ball, extend drives, and that's what they did, never punting during the game. "He's had two or three sacks this year just out of great effort where he's chased the quarterback out of the pocket and ran him down along the sideline". Kelce had six catches for just 23 yards.
Suddenly, the Chiefs had the lead 33-30 and it was up to Brady, who had enjoyed so much success in the first half, to catch the kid. But the Chiefs had other plans. Hill managed 142 yards and three touchdowns during the contest. They did sort of, using 11 plays to position Gostkowski for a 39-yard field goal to put the home team up 30-26.
Alas, the Patriots kicked a field goal at the final gun to win the game at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
Hill was showered by some beer and given the finger after he scored his third touchdown of the night. It was too big of a play in too short of a time.
The question of "Which game will you watch?" - as if the Patriots and Red Sox are an either/or proposition - is roughly as outdated as sitting in an easy chair to watch the big game on a black-and-white Magnavox. They look like they are finding themselves, as most people figured they would. You know, just like everyone predicted.
"I think it's just the excitement of it, being Sunday night, against a great team, I think he got excited". Put another way: perhaps we shouldn't be fooled by the Patriots' slow start. And it happened because Brady was at his sharpest at the most important time, and so were his targets. "They're gonna be pretty tough to stop. I think we deserved it". "That's what the football season is all about. I think we can all play a lot better, and I think that's what we plan to do". I'm a lot more comfortable with the defense.
