The Chiefs recently dispatched with the Oakland Raiders, their only real AFC West challenge, in the kind of blowout win that removes all doubt about the division’s best team. The Patriots have won the AFC East the last 10 seasons, so another championship is almost expected. But their lackluster loss to the Houston Texans once again exposed their lingering issues on offense as the team struggles to maintain a one-game division lead. The Chiefs visit Foxborough Sunday to face the Patriots, for a matchup with potential home-field implications in the AFC playoff race. Kansas City’s dismantling of Oakland wasn’t all that much of a surprise. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes leads one of the NFL’s more explosive passing attacks and is capable of throwing for 400-plus yards and multiple touchdowns any time he steps on the field. But … [Read more...] about Chiefs-Patriots Previews: Can Pats Defense Contain Patrick Mahomes?
