Tom Brady and the New England Patriots make a return to the prime time spotlight when they travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs. The Patriots have not looked like the offensive juggernaut that they have been in the past and hope to change that up against the Chiefs.
The Patriots are known for a quick strike, high octane offense but this year they have struggled to light up the scoreboard. That struggle was very clear a week ago against the hapless Oakland Raiders. The Patriots are used to blowing out weaker opponents at home but they needed a late questionable call to stop the Raiders from tying up this game in the waning seconds. The Patriots were not even close to covering the giant double digit spread in this game. Despite that performance they are still four point favorites in the Monday night football game on the road.
The Kansas City Chiefs come into this game riding a high. They beat the Miami Dolphins for a win on the road despite being a 5 point underdog. The Chiefs overcame the injury to superstar running back Jamaal Charles and still put up big numbers on offense. Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith had more success than Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill did when the defenses sent five or more pass rushers. All 25 of Smith’s passes traveled fewer than 10 yards downfield and Knile Davis ripped up the Dolphin defense on the ground picking up the slack when called upon.
