Best to play for both the Patriots and the Chiefs

Brian Waters joined the Chiefs in 2000 as a free agent and spent 11 years in Kansas City. He was named as an All Pro twice and was selected for the Pro Bowl 5 times as a Chief. In 2009 he won the Walter Payton Man Of The Year Award.

In September 2011 Waters signed for the Patriots. He went on to play every game that season, also being selected to for the Pro Bowl and also played in Super Bowl 46 vs the New York Giants.

The Chiefs best game vs the Patriots

This was a tough decision but in my opinion this has to be last season’s opening game. Going to Foxboro to the home of the Super Bowl champions in week 1 is a tough ask but losing 27-21 going into the 4th quarter looked like the Patriots were going into Week 2 with the W.

And then a 78 yard touchdown from Kareem Hunt seem to give the Chiefs a spark, another Hunt touchdown was quickly followed by a Charcandrick West touchdown which left Boston stunned and sealed an emphatic win for the Chiefs 42-27.
