The story so far

5-0 who would of thought it, obviously us Chiefs fans but what a start to the season.

2 wins against our Divisional rivals, 4 wins in the conference (1 against one of the favourites this year) the Chiefs are ticking along nicely going into week 6.  

 The Patriots have had a mixed start to the season with 3 wins against the Texans, Dolphins and Colts but they have lost to the Jags and Lions In Weeks 2 & 3.

One to watch 

Josh Gordon, There is no doubt about it, Josh Gordon is one of the most hyped players on the Patriots roster.

Time will tell if his time in New England will be a success as he has the potential, The only reason he hasn’t become a star is due to his off the field issues.

Not a head to head but one of the greatest quarterbacks up against the old boy Brady. Does Mahomes continue to surprise everyone but Chiefs fans?!

What they said 

Belichick used Wednesday’s press conference to talk up several of Mahomes’ targets, including Travis Kelce

“He’s good at everything. He’s got good speed,” Belichick said. “He’s really good after the catch, hard to tackle, good in space, he’s quick. He’s got good size. He catches the ball well, good balance. He’s a hard guy to defend.”

What we said 

“They’re going to have a game plan on trying to stop some of your better guys,” Mahomes explained of facing the Patriots on Wednesday. “With us, I feel like the mentality we’ve had this entire season is that whoever is open, give them the ball and let them make the play. They’re going to do some stuff to try to confuse me, but I’m going to try to maintain our game plan and keep working.”

Odds 

Patriots 4/7

Chiefs 29/20
