AFC Divisional Game # 1

Kansas City Chiefs @ New England Patriots, Saturday January 16th 4:35pm EST

The Preview

The Kansas City Chiefs come into this one having won 11 in a row and having just shut out the Houston Texans in last week’s game. That shutout was the first in the playoffs since 2005 when the Panthers blanked the NY Giants 23-0. The Patriots will pose a much stronger threat to the Chiefs with Tom Brady leading the attack and the home New England crowd sure to make its presence known. Our Madden predictions went 3-1 last week with the Chiefs outcome being the only loss of the Wild Card round.

The Game

The Chiefs received the ball first but the Patriots defense was quick to make its mark on the game intercepting Alex Smith’s first pass attempt of the day. The Pats Offense made no mistake as LeGarrette Blount rushed up the middle and banged his way into the end zone for a 7-0 lead. The 1st quarter ended 7-0 as Alex Smith couldn’t muster up anything for the Chiefs. Both teams locked horns defensively until just under two minutes to go in the first half. Alex Smith took matters into his own hands and ran the ball 25 yards for a touchdown (highlight). Brady tried to answer the score with one of his own but could only muster up a FG before the half expired. The Pats took a 10-7 lead into halftime. New England opened the half with the ball as they looked to take a two score lead over the Chiefs. Tom Brady took little time in firing a 47 yard touchdown pass to give the Pats a 17-7 lead (highlight). On the following drive Alex Smith again used his legs to get his team within scoring position. Aided by a 15 yard facemask penalty, the Chiefs found themselves in the red zone at the start of the 4th quarter. The Chiefs converted a 37 yard FG to cut the deficit to 17-10. After stuffing the Patriots Offense, the Chiefs got the ball back with 15 seconds left on their own 14 yard line and with no timeouts. The improbable proved impossible as Alex Smith had little chance but to throw deep bombs to his receivers. Both attempts failed and the Patriots held on for the 17-10 win advancing to the AFC Championship. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiZFL8SgCnM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViqtKL3dm1A&feature=youtu.be
