Brady, Patriots top Chiefs for wild 43-40 win

Chiefs Injury Update 4 won't practice on Wednesday

Chiefs Injury Update 4 won't practice on Wednesday

You're just kind of watching.

"Wannabe" isn't meant to demean the Chiefs.

Of course, with Tom Brady, age is just a number.

It used to be the same here. However the veteran wide receiver's real coming out party was on Sunday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6.

But we're a little jaded now.

"We will learn a lot from this game", he said. Boom! Tie game, 40-40. They still have a one game lead over all the other contenders in the AFC and their only loss is a three point loss to Tom Brady and the Patriots where you gifted them a 24-9 halftime lead. Brady threw for 302 yards and two touchdowns without any interceptions, with both of those touchdowns going to Rob Gronkowski. Stephen Gostkowski's game-winning 28-yard field goal as time expired gave Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs their first loss of the season.

After a week debating the merits of Gronk compared to Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, Gronk got the last word. Patrick Mahomes was without two of his starting interior lineman in the second half with Mitch Morse joining the injured ranks with a concussion (and right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is already out). We just have to find ways to score in the red zone. This is a team with a TON of upside going forward.

Even so, the Seahawks had the ball back and were knocking on the door once again at the end of the quarter. The Seahawks won with the formula that had been working for the previous three weeks.

That Kansas City might get alternately picked on and bullied on the ground and spread thin and picked apart through the air. Yeah, he's just another notch on the Patriots belt this morning, another under-25 quarterback that lost to the Patriots at Gillette, but he's the wind beneath the Chiefs wings now.

"I was pretty excited; I was just hoping that he didn't get hurt", Hogan joked when asked about Brady's touchdown run.

"We've got a lot of clutch players and we have no problems grinding it out", Brady said.

"It's just the risk we've got to take now", said Speaks, who finished with six tackles and a sack Sunday.

"I mean, it was a spectacle, that's for sure", Gordon said. The decidedly-un-fleet-footed Brady broke away from a rusher and found a way to hop through two defenders for the score, which put the Patriots back on top after the Chiefs briefly held their only lead of the night.

A few minutes later, after Mahomes had changed into his sweats and was heading out of the stadium toward the team buses, he encountered a line of people wearing Chiefs apparel and waiting near the tunnel to great him. It's one of the best group of guys I've been around in my whole 11-year career.

"Yeah, you know, we had confidence [on the final drive]", Brady said after the game. The way this team works, the way this team prepares. You know, I still think we missed some opportunities out there, but made some situational plays when we needed it, the short-yardages - you know, we really lost the game previous year on some short yardages, and I thought we were pretty good in it tonight.
