The Kansas City Chiefs’ Edge Vs. The Patriots
When facing the New England Patriots, teams get rattled by their defensive schemes. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs faced the Pats last season twice, and they know what they will face this weekend.
Mahomes is not playing at the top of his game, but he remains an outstanding quarterback. Pat has thrown five touchdowns without an interception in the last three games since he came back from injury. The Chiefs won two of those three games, losing only against the Tennessee Titans.
Despite the injuries and the mishaps of the season, the Chiefs’ offense still is one of the best in the NFL. They are 3rd best passing offense in the league while averaging 29.0 points per game, which is also the third-best number in 2019.
Last week, they destroyed the Oakland Raiders 40-9. The Raiders are not a proper measurement stick, but that still is an impressive win inside the division.
The New England Patriots’ Edge Vs. The Chiefs
Last year when the Patriots beat the Chiefs twice, they did it by outscoring Kansas City both times. If New England wants to add a third win in a row in the series, they will have to do it with a defensive effort.
The Patriots offense is averaging just 18.0 points per game in the last month, and they have failed over and over to try to fix it. The defense, however, is the second-best in the NFL in total yards, and they allowed only 12.1 points per game, which is the best mark.
New England’s defense has recorded 40 sacks this season. They have the players to pressure on Patrick Mahomes most of the game, making him uncomfortable all afternoon. After all, Mahomes still lingering a knee injury suffered over a month ago.
Mahomes cannot be shut down completely, but New England has proven they can contain him just enough to get the W.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. New England Patriots NFL Week 14 Prediction
The betting line suggests the Patriots are getting respect mostly because they are playing at home, and of course, because they are the Patriots. But if you have been watching their team, their offense is just a shadow of what it used to be.
Tom Brady is playing without confidence. He doesn’t trust his receivers, and other than Julian Edelman, he doesn’t have playmakers outside the numbers.
They can’t even run the football. The Patriots have the 21st rushing team in the NFL, which is far from scary.
If New England can’t score points, how are they going to win this game? Kansas City will get their share either way. You can slow down Pat Mahomes, but you can’t stop him entirely. What happens if the Chiefs score 24 points? I don’t see how the Patriots respond. Bet Chiefs +3.
