The Kansas City Chiefs travel to Foxboro to take on the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots to kick off the 2017 NFL season.
Coming off his 5th Super Bowl championship, Tom Brady heads into his 18th season as the Patriots quarterback as a 40-year-old. Only one other quarterback has won a playoff game at age 40 or older and that was Brett Favre in 2010.
Not being satisfied with completing the greatest Super Bowl comeback of all-time, the Patriots won the offseason as well, adding a boatload of talent across the board — perhaps suggesting they believe this will be Brady’s last season. On offense, the Pats added tight end Dwayne Allen from the Colts, lightning quick receiver Brandin Cooks from the New Orleans Saints, Rex Burkhead, and Mike Gillislee. On defense, New England snatched up cornerback Stephon Gilmore in free agency, snagged David Harris after the Jets cut him, and resigned their own corner, Malcom Butler.
As for the Chiefs, they head into the 2017 season coming off a 12-4 season that saw them win the AFC West. Despite drafting talented young quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the first round of the NFL Draft, Alex Smith is still the Chiefs starting quarterback.
While the Chiefs were one of the AFC’s best teams last season, they will be no match for the Patriots at home, who have won nine of their last 10 season openers, including eight in a row. Despite the loss of Julian Edelman, the Patriots are as loaded as they’ve ever been on both offense and defense. We like the Pats tonight, 30-14.
