I will say one thing that I don't think is getting lost but probably deserves appreciation on the Reid/Mahomes of it all. The offensive supporting cast for Patrick Mahomes has an obviously great TE that opens up the field a ton, but the RBs were Jerick McKinnon and Isaac Pacheco and the WR were Kadarius Toney, Juju Smith Schuster, Marques Valdez-Scantling, Justin Watson, and Skyy Moore. I think if most teams had that group of guys we'd be openly wondering where the scoring is coming from (like that batch is probably worse than what Mac Jones was playing with this year talent wise, though Kelce is infinitely better than what they put out at TE performance wise), and the Eagles had no answers for whatever KC was doing in the second half. I'm not exactly rooting for the Chiefs or anything but that offensive performance with that group of skill players, especially over the past handful of years where we see guys like Kupp, Chase, Jefferson, etc. just take over games at the end is truly impressive.
This isn't to make an argument on Mahomes/Brady or anything or whether the penalty ruined a great game (still for me it did to some extent) - even for a Pats forum I think some folks are being premature and might be underrating how hard it is to win a Super Bowl or to last as long as Tom Brady did - just a bit of admiration that a team that lost a player considered their skill position X factor (Hill) and lead running back (CEH) really just gave a very high end defense some fits.
I think the Chiefs come up with some of the most creative and innovative game plans and designs I've ever seen. Sometimes it looks goofy (like the merry go round play at the goal line) especially when it doesn't work, but man they really, really know what they're doing. Shows you the value of excellent offensive coaching. That plus having an otherworldly talent at QB like Mahomes. Those two things allows you to do an awful lot.
But here's what's interesting... with all that great coaching and with Mahomes and Kelce and (until this year), Hill, here's what the Chiefs have ranked in terms of points scored: 1, 5, 6, 4, 1. That's an average of 3.4.
The Patriots, from 2007-2018, ranked the following in points scored: 1, 8, 6, 1, 3, 1, 3, 4, 3, 3, 2, 4. And the 8 was with Cassel, and the 6 was with Brady in his first year back from injury and clearly wasn't back to full death star status. That's an average (with Brady) of 2.8.
In terms of raw points scored (not counting NE's 2008 season):
KC: 2465, for an average of 30.4 a game
NE: 5316, for an average of 30.2 a game
So as incredible as this Chiefs' offense has been, the Pats under Brady were every bit as good.
Man...remember what it was like when the Pats had this kind of offense? I miss those days.
