The Zombie Pats are at it again. Just 11 days ago they were 1-2 and almost in a must-win situation as the 3-0 Dolphins came to Gillette. Here we sit less than two weeks later and the Pats are back where they are accustomed to being, in first place in the AFC East. But, while convincing wins against the Dolphins and Colts were good to see in order to know that the Pats aren't bad yet, we don't really know whether they are good yet either. Seems like the perfect time for a test game against one of the big boys in the league. Enter the Chiefs. 5-0 and looking every bit like the best team in the AFC, and one of top couple of teams in the League. Pat Mahomes looks like the real deal, a cannon for an arm with accuracy and can make every throw he needs to make, and he can make plays with his legs too. Add in the fact that he has weapons all over the field, and this offense looks like a nightmare match-up for any team, never mind the Pats D who has struggled at times with every team this year who didn't have Ryan Tannehill at QB. This is the same Chiefs team that absolutely gutted the Pats last year in a nationally televised game, except they have upgraded from Smith to Mahomes at the most important position on the field. How to slow down the Chiefs? Can we realistically expect the Pats to do that? Or is this just going to be like the Super Bowl where it is the first team to 40 and let's hope the other guy makes one more mistake on offense than you do. The Pats looked great on offense last week and would have looked even greater without a couple of fluky tipped INTs. But, fluky or not, that stuff has to be gone this week. Mistakes on offense letting the Chiefs defense off the hook is not a recipe for success this week. On the flip side the Pats should be able to move the ball and put up points on the Chiefs D, so all of the football world is expecting a shootout . . . which probably means we'll get a 17-14 game or something. The good news is this game is at home. I am excited to see the Pats offense continue to come together with Edelman having another week under his belt, and the continued emergence (hopefully) of Josh Gordon. A loss isn't the end of the world for the Pats playoff chances but will put them effectively 4 games behind the Chiefs for the top spot in the AFC and with losses to the Jags and Chiefs, a bye starts looking a little tough. A win on the other hand and it is time to start talking about how the Dynasty may not be over just quite yet. Go Pats! Fuck the Chiefs.
