Can't see Patriots winning. Coin flip if this is in Foxborough but the Chiefs will win, and could blow-out.

.... remember the time two or three years ago when everyone said he was done after a certain game at Arrowhead.

Has Brady played a game there since?

New England Patriots (+8|+23|+20) @ Kansas City Chiefs (+13|+15|+6) = New England (+17) - 5 = New England +12
NE: 27.3-26.3 = 26.8 + (31/4) = 34.6 - (2.5/10) = 34.3 - 1.5 = 32.8
KC: 35.3-20.3 = 27.8 + (28/4) = 34.8 + (2.5/10) = 35.1 + 1.5 = 36.6
Kansas City 37-33

If the Chiefs D plays like they did against the Colts, they will win easily. However, Brady and the Pats O-line are peaking at the right time. The Pats run game with Michel, White and Burkhead is also playing well...Other than Gilmore, who has had a strong season, the Pats pass D won't be strong enough to contain Mahomes, Tyreek and Kelce. Chiefs 33 v Pats 27.

Pats will want to shorten the game and run the ball. Remember that time when they simply allowed Knowshon Moreno to cruise to 200yds rushing in 2013? I can see the same thing happening

Arrowhead to break it's own sound record??

Unsure of the effect temperature has on sound but i would guess the freezing temps would make that harder.

Then again it will be popping in there

Should be a great game. Chiefs ran the Pats close in NE, and feel the sides are pretty even so KC -3 or -4 seems a fair line. This article is moronic for suggesting otherwise.

If pats can run it remotely as effective as today with Michel, White & Rex, they’ll beat KC, it’s that simple. Prob is we’ve never been able to establish it on the road at all this year & that in itself is the challenge.
