In a upset, the Kansas City Chiefs beat down the New England Patriots 14-41 on at Arrowhead Stadium Monday night. It was a spectacular blow out, while a pleasant surprise, it was befuddling. I’ve always known the Patriots to be one of the best teams in the AFC.
It looks like Brady has lost the edge out on the playing field Monday, just about all together. To add insult to Tom Brady’s “injury” the Chiefs defensive line made him look like the 1st year rookie. To put it bluntly, he was making mistakes that I’ve only seen few others make. To name one noticeable mistake was Brady literally throwing the ball to the Chiefs’ defense (emulating Tony Romo, lol). Belichick even pulled Brady out of the game during the 4th quarter. Yeah, that was how bad it really was. During the post-game interview, Belichick looked like he needed a Happy Meal, as one of the KC Fans said on Twitter. lol
Overall, I feel that this may have been a fluke, as much as I don’t like Tom Brady I just don’t think that this signals the falling of the Tom Brady era at the New England Patriots. Looking at the Patriots performance over the last 13 years, it’s plain to see that this game was probably a fluke. On average, the Patriots have won 13 games a season since the turn of the 21st century. As a side note, I do think that the Ben Roethlisberger era at the Pittsburgh Steelers is coming to an end. His performance over the last few years has been declining.
Some good news for the Chiefs Kingdom is that Jamaal Charles played this game, and had left due to dehydration during the game and returned shortly after. His fantasy owners got a pleasant points boost for those who had him starting (Ugh, I had him benched, I didn’t know that he was going to play this game or not). Also, Alex Smith seemed to be having the game of his career as one of the commentators said during the game. Kniles Davis was also having a great game as well. To put it simply, the team was kicking Patriot behind.
Anyhow, this Monday Night Football game has got to be one of the best that I’ve seen in a long time, and I hope that the Chiefs keep up their winning streak. The next two games are going to be tough. They face the 49ers at Levis Stadium next Sunday, then after their Bye week, they face the San Diego at their home field as well. From the looks of things they’re on fire. As of writing this post, they are 2-2 so far.
