Chiefs come up short against Patriots

"He's had success in this league because he's won games with last-minute drives like that".

"Rob got a matchup and made the big play", said Brady, who threw for 340 yards. But looking beyond the win/loss record, the Pats have weaknesses that were on display.

The Chiefs didn't have a lot of things going for them in this game, so to come away with a three-point defeat isn't the most back-breaking feeling in the world. It's nearly become normal to see the Patriots down by one score in the fourth quarter and feel at it. Here are three players that stood out in the win over the Chiefs. "He's playing for 60 minutes and playing four quarterbacks of football and keeping our foot on the gas".

As for Brady, he passed for over 300-yards and his most notable moment came when he scored on a gutsy 4-yard rush that put the Patriots back in front 37-33 after the Chiefs had earlier retaken the lead.

The Chiefs can "take this loss" as Hunt said because they feel pretty good that this won't be the only time they see the Patriots this year.

The Patriots were able to run out the rest of the clock and kick a simple game-winning field goal a couple of plays later. It was a critical play, as it helped set up Gostkowski's 50-yard field goal.

The score was Hill's third touchdown of the game and when he got to the end zone, he definitely didn't get a warm welcome. Brady and the Patriots got it done, though Mahomes made them work for it.

Brady beat Mahomes in the end. "If you want to get to where you want to get to, you have to win games that are going to be tight - and they're going to be against really good opponents". Because Patrick Mahomes and the surging Chiefs simply couldn't be stopped.

Brady and Mahomes wished each other well at midfield after Stephen Gostkowski's 28-yard field goal decided the game. We all knew that the defense was going to lose a game for Kansas City at some point this season, but it took Tom Brady and the Patriots offense until the final second of the game to get the victory.

"I think we have a lot of clutch players".
