Things We Learned From the Patriots Win Over the Chiefs

Things We Learned From the Patriots Win Over the Chiefs”

The Patriots had their best offensive night of the 2018 season, amassing 500 total yards while getting another clutch performance from Brady, their surefire Hall of Fame quarterback, in a 43-40 win over the Chiefs on Sunday night. As the Chiefs were attempting a comeback, Tyreek Hill caught a pass from quarterback Patrick Mahomes and outran Patriot defenders on his way to the end zone. On one of the big plays, Gronk left cleat marks on Chiefs safety Ron Parker after stiff-arming him to the turf.

Those two scoring plays were two longest receiving plays of the season by a Patriots opponent and Hill's 75-yard touchdown matches the 75-yard touchdown he scored back in Week 1 of 2017 which, coincidentally, came in the 4th quarter of the Chiefs win in Foxboro.

The second half belonged to Hill and Mahomes, who became the first player in Chiefs history to surpassed 300 passing yards in five straight games.

It was Stephen Gostkowski's field goal right at the end of the fourth quarter that sealed it for the Patriots though as they inflicted Kansas's first defeat of the National Football League season.

Said Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore: "I'm happy we've got Tom Brady". Here are three players that stood out in the win over the Chiefs.

The Chiefs (5-1) rallied from a 15-point halftime deficit to go up 33-30 with 8:38 remaining.

But coach Andy Reid said he is confident his team has room to grow. Rob Gronkowski secured a 42-yard catch on the Pats' penultimate drive that put them ahead by a needed touchdown, and his 39-yarder set up their game-winning field goal.

Brady said: "He made some big ones, made a lot of big ones".

This near-comeback the Chiefs made shows that no matter how bad it looks, the Chiefs can fight their way back into any game and make it competitive, and that's exactly what you want out of your offense if you want to be a Super Bowl contender.
