The New England Patriots are starting their postseason run with a game against the red-hot Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady look to embark on another magical postseason run, while the Chiefs are coming off their first postseason victory in 22 years.
Anything other than a win will be viewed as disappointing for the Patriots, who started the season an untouchable 10-0, but injuries derailed the offense. Most of those injured players should be back and close to strength today, so hopefully the team can find some of the mojo it lost after wide receiver Julian Edelman went down with a foot injury.
Below are the game details. Use this as your open thread for the game.
