- Chris Conley made a dazzling 19-yard catch on the opening play of the drive for a first down, and Kareem Hunt is the best Chief on Sunday night. Hunt had the ball out in the right flat on third-and-three, and he is able to break the tackle for the first down. Travis Kelce is hurdling again—he did so in the open field on a 17-yard gain. Chiefs drive stalled in the red zone, but Chiefs make a 24-yard field goal. Patriots lead, 17-9.
- Tom Brady finds wide receiver Julian Edelman running a fade to the back left corner of the end zone. Edelman beat Kendall Fuller, who slipped up, and he was able to make the touchdown catch after adjusting his glove in the middle of the play. Patriots lead, 17-6.
END OF FIRST QUARTER – Patriots 10, Chiefs 6
- Patriots back with the ball. Rob Gronkowski finally makes his first catch of the game for 16 yards. Kenjon Barner, who has three rushes this year headed into the game, had three rushes for 16 yards before Michel reentered the game. Julian Edelman made his first catch of the game for 14 yards.
- Kareem Hunt gets the Chiefs into Patriots territory with 25 yards on a screen pass, but the Chiefs drive stalled after that. Chiefs hit a 43-yard field goal to cut the lead to 4. Patriots lead, 10-6.
- Mahomes gets the ball back and on first-and-10 at the Chiefs 23-yard line, he throws a bad interception into the hands of Dont’a Hightower. Hightower returns the ball to the Kansas City 4-yard line, and Michel finishes it off with a 4-yard touchdown. Patriots lead, 10-3.
Here’s the pick:
- Patriots feature running back Sony Michel on their second drive for 20 total rushing yards—Chiefs inside linebackers are struggling with Michel early on in this game. Chiefs force third-and-10 at their own 37-yard line, and the Patriots not able to get it—just short with Chris Hogan 7-yard gain. Patriots hit 48-yard firled goal. It’s tied, 3-3.
- Chiefs start on their own 40-yard line and hit Travis Kelce for two catches and 26 yards. Patrick Mahomes had Kareem Hunt WIDE OPEN for six points up the seam on a pass on first-and-10 at the New England 26, but Mahomes overthrew him. Chiefs settle for a 42-yard field goal. Chiefs lead, 3-0.
- Chiefs deferred to the Patriots for the first drive, and they came out fast with two quick first downs. Chiefs forced third-and-3 and the Kansas City 40, and Dee Ford bothered Tom Brady enough for an incompletion. Patriots go for it on fourth-and-3, and Brady’s incomplete on a ball to Josh Gordon. Chiefs ball.
