Kansas City vs. New England,
12/08/2019 16:25 EDT,
Score: 23 - 16
Point Spread: +3/-107 Kansas City
The Chiefs own the second-best yards-per-snap average, a stark contrast to New England’s No. 23 placement. Patriots QB Tom Brady’s frustration with his undermanned unit at the TE and WR positions.
This year Kansas City is 7-1 when scoring more than 24 points but just 1-3 when posting 24 or less. For the Patriots, it goes farther back, as they are 28-2 in their last 30 regular-season games when scoring 21 points or more but just 3-6 in their previous nine when scoring 20 or less.
For this game, the Patriots are riding a 22 game Gillette Stadium winning streak. Despite all that, I believe Mahomes and the Chiefs will be able to do enough against a Patriots defense that has recently struggled against dual-threat quarterbacks and Andy Reid to continue to have regular-season success versus the Patriots. Take the points with the KC Chiefs.
