The New England Patriots offense could not have asked for a better final four weeks to get back on track. Not only do they get to work out their issues against teams like the Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals, the Patriots also get to face one of the worst defenses in the league in the Kansas City Chiefs.
