Tune in to the latest episode of the Pats Blitz Podcast.

NFL: AFC Divisional Playoff-Los Angeles Chargers at New England Patriots Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

In this week’s episode of the Pats Blitz Podcast, Steven and Chris preview the AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs. Listeners had a lot of burning questions about the upcoming matchup, and here is a sample of the ones discussed on the show:

  • Who will be the X-factor on defense for the Patriots? Steven says cornerback J.C. Jackson, and Chris says safety Patrick Chung.
  • Who will be the X-factor on offense? Chris picks jack-of-all-trades Cordarrelle Patterson, while Steven goes with fellow wide receiver Chris Hogan.
  • Can the Patriots slow down the Chiefs offense enough to win? Chris and Steven both say yes, and they can do it by mixing up the coverages — and more.

We also answer some questions from the fans of the podcast ! Big thanks to everyone that sent one in.
