On his final trip to the house, Hill was greeted with a whole hands worth of middle fingers - and one unwelcome shower. But looking beyond the win/loss record, the Pats have weaknesses that were on display.
As for plays he would like to have back, Brady pointed to his strip-sack fumble in the late in the third quarter as one they "left out there" Sunday night. It's nearly become normal to see the Patriots down by one score in the fourth quarter and feel at it. We'd get giddy talk about the 1994 opener when Drew Bledsoe and Dan Marino dueled and the Patriots lost 38-34, the same way people in Kansas City are going to talk about this one. The Chiefs were trailing 40-33, looking to tie the game with a scoring drive.
Five-time Super Bowl victor Brady had seen a 24-9 half-time lead evaporate as second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes led an astonishing second-half fight-back from the Chiefs to prove that he really could be the next big star of the NFL.
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.
The return of Julian Edelman has certainly helped the offensive turnaround, as Brady's favorite receiver hauled in four receptions for 54 yards, including Brady's only touchdown pass of the game. The Chiefs simply could not stop the Patriots' running attack - mainly Sony Michel who had his second 100-yard game of the season.
Hightower was also part of another turnover after he jammed Kelce and put pressure on Mahomes toward the end of the first half when the Chiefs appeared to be on the verge of getting points right before halftime. We just played a little bit better.
"Rob makes a lot of big plays blocking and receiving", Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. After a short pass from Tom Brady, Gronkowski showed off his impressive strength by using a massive stiff arm to throw down a Kansas City Chiefs defender. White knew he'd have to beat single tacklers going into the game, and simply elevated himself to make that happen in crunch time.
Tom Brady once again proved that you can't give him time to lead a game-winning drive and Rob Gronkowski showed that he is almost impossible to tackle.
"That's what the football season is all about".
