We're scoring 53 points tomorrow.
The Chargers, who we just fucking demolished, came back from being 14 down in KC. In the 4th quarter. With 8 minutes left.
That shit just takes 1 stop.
It might be wishful thinking, but it feels like one of those seasons where people look back and say, wow the Patriots just flipped a switch come playoff time. If we win tomorrow, I think we finally get our blowout in a superbowl.
We know the odds are against the Pats. They have only one once in Arrowhead in their History!!! They are lousy on the road this year. Brady's Pats are 3-4 on the road in the playoffs, last win was the Chargers in January of 07. Only two teams have gone to 3 or more straight Super Bowls-Fins 6,7 and 8. And the Bills of course-25-28. But.....this is the stuff they love playing for. Being the underdog and proving the haters that Brady and the Pats are old and done. Win or lose I can't complain of the success of the past 18 seasons. If they can pull this one off this might be the best of all. As good as the comeback two years ago. Good comparison is the old veteran 1969 Celtics which Red and Russ said that title meant the most because they were older and big underdogs. To me this would mean the most.
Chiefs with 52 or less and we good.
I posted this article last week comparing refs for this year. Blakeman ranks 7th (tied with two others) out of 17 for holding. 5th highest overall flag rate.
Great article thanks. I'm guessing most of those calls are for holding on pass plays if Blakemen is responsible for the T not the interior OL play as the article suggests. Trent Brown could be in trouble if so as he has had struggles with fast smaller pass rushers this year.
Hopefully Blakemen's propensity to throw roughing the passer flags works in our favor today.
The officials crew stats don’t mean much today. It is not Blakeman’s usual crew.
I'm far more worried about noise issues and thus false start penalties where I can see it from my couch (hard to blame Blakeman for those).
Right but the article linked focuses on what Blakemen's responsibilities are which are primarily the line of scrimmage. He tends to call a lot more roughing the passer than Vinovich who has the NO game. He also tends to call more offensive holding.
Still nine hours away. Good grief.
I think it is 53.
Like it if it were seconds,
Just arrived in KC. It’s damn cold.
Looking like high teens during the game. Nice.
It's not obtuse to point out a ridiculous statement. Saying, "If the Pats are behind 14, they can not come back," is as ridiculous as saying, "I'm hearing vaccines cause autism, so I wouldn't use them for my family. I just think that's safer."
It's not true and it's not accurate. Do you know how I know it's not accurate? Because there is a greater than 0% chance the Pats could win today despite falling down by 10. It will make things more difficult, and they are on the road, but it's certainly possible. The Pats, should they fall down by 14, aren't going to walk off the field.
And I'm glad they won't, because they have come back from double digit deficits before in some of the biggest games of the season over the past few years.
It’s almost worth it to have the Pats fall behind by 2 scores just to see what the game thread would be like.
While you're at it, just for laughs break up with your girlfriend. Make-up sex is AMAZING!
In previous years, it would definitely be amazing.But this year, I am not sure if I could come back from the break up and rise to the occasion.
I can't see a NE blowout. I think of a sliding scale. Most games, it's around a 31 point window - the Pats could lose by 7 or win by 24. But this time, I think it's backwards. I could see the Pats winning a close one, or getting blown out. But I can't really see the Pats winning in a blowout.
No one really saw one last week either. And yet...
Best social media team in sports. Is it game time yet?
He’s just being digital on it, 1 or 0. It’s like we say “if you throw inside heat to Mookie Betts, he’ll hit it out of the park.” Well, of course, not every time, but more than he’ll hit any other kind of pitch out.
I’d kill for a new edition of the TB Times around 9:30.
Well that’s fine, but you’re changing his statement. He didn’t say they cannot come back. He said he doesn’t think they could. We deal with probabilities here; nothing is 100, nothing is zero. In his mind, coming back from two scores down is closer to the latter than the former. He is probably right.
I could see either team winning in a blowout. The sample size of drives in an NFL game is small and these are both good teams.
I could envision a scenario in which the Patriots can't stop the Chiefs offense while the Patriots have a couple of sputtered drives or a turnover and suddenly it's 24-7 KC.
But I can also see the Patriots offense rolling almost as well as they did last week while the Chiefs have a couple of drives sputter and a turnover and suddenly it's 24-7 Patriots.
I don't really expect either defense to rise to the occasion and flat out win their side of the ball but if I had to bet on one of them I'll take the Patriots D, even with their crappy road performances. Except for the Colts shitshow last week the Chiefs have basically given up 450+ yards to every decent team they've played this year.
Lol, currently the entire site is members only.
That is pretty funny. It must be quite a dumpster fire in there.
Lots of good stuff here
Not a Pats guy but came by to tip the cap on a win for the ages. Remarkable stat:
what was the other loss?
Raiders/Colts 77. Ghost To The Post. Also 37-31 OT. Insane.
Nuttiest stat I saw is that the Patriots ran 94 offensive plays and zero of them went for negative yards.
crEDIT to Dan Orlovsky for that one
Didn’t Brady take a knee on last play of regulation? Or just not counting that because it wasn’t a real play?
Sorry, you're right - the correct stat was that only one play went for negative yards and it was that kneeldown.
Thanks for posting, I skipped to the last page and now I know all about the grand NFL conspiracy
That. Is. Amazing.
Holy crap. There's not enough tinfoil in the world for that dude.
It's the Lincoln/Kennedy assassination coincidences combined with Dark Side of the Moon/Wizard of Oz.
Sadly, I think that takes Brady back down to <1000 yards rushing for his career.
Woody and Stephen A taking Max to the woodshed for calling Tom lucky on First Take. Priceless.
A few of my favorite chiefsplanet posts:
Everyone on defense are cowards.
That hit his left thumb and his bicep. Chiefs ****ing ball. Chiefs are going to win by 4!!!!!
Thumb!!!!! Thumb!!!! Thumb!!!!!!
Someone needs to blow Van Noy's knee out on the next play.
Come on Tommy. Time to show your age.

Busted ass Gronk beats Berry
That's three scores in 2 minute. That's two clutch drives in less than two minutes by our young stallion QB.

**** YOU, COIN!!
Effing Edelman. Always with the conversion after an ALMOST.
I want to go back in time and trade Anne Frank's family for Edelman's.
Three 3rd-and-longs. Three conversions.
Hire romo as D.C.
So the coin toss wins the game. We don't even get to touch the ball. complete bullshit, everyone should get to touched the ball
Ball game. Good season fellas.
This is internet gold, but it has simply got to be parody. There is no way this person is for real. I mean, good lord, I assume this conspiracy was hatched in the basement of a pizza place with Hillary Clinton?
Devin McCourty was a beast last night.
Wow. I sit here marveling at the angst this person is feeling now.
Was Jonathan Jones on Hill pretty much the entire game?
Watch Trent Brown towards the end of this play.
Mostly, with help now and then from Crossen and McCourty deep.
