Patriots vs. Chiefs Vieweing Details
Date: Thursday at 8:30 PM EST
Location: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts
TV Channel: NBC
With questions surrounding how the Patriots will perform without their reliable running back, Legarrette Blount and star wide receiver Julian Edelmen, the team would like to prove to the world that they are ready to make another run to the big stage. While they did lose two of their better players, the team compensated by receiving Rob Gronkowski who recovered from injury. Tom Brady playing at age 40 still looks 30; as his throwing ability has not been undermined.
On the other side, the Kansas City Chiefs still are one of the top teams in the NFL. Unfortunately, with Jamal Charles not returning, there may be some issues with their running game. However, the team still has Tyreke Hill at wide receiver and Alex Smith at quarterback. However, the breakout option for the team is their defense. Last year, the Kansas City Chiefs lead the league in interceptions, pass deflections and fumble recoveries.
