I know the Pats looked pretty pedestrian (if that) the last six games of the season.

With that said -

On defense, I am hoping that with both Jones and Hightower back, the Alex Smith will be pressured all night. I have enough trust in the defense not to give up that many points (30).

On offense, with Edelman back hopefully at a minimum 75% of his normal self, this should create some real matchup issues for KC. I can envision James White having a big game. With Gronk and Edelman taking the coverage heat, that could put White with many single coverage opportunities, and he could have a break out game. All well and good, but if the offensive line can't do any better, than it's all moot on offense because Brady won't have any time for plays to develop properly.

Chiefs were lucky to beat the Texans. They got no shot to beat the Pats.

/Sarcasm.

Pats have the best qb/coach tandem in the league. Two weeks to heal and prepare. Pats will win by two touchdowns.

The Pats D certainly has the potential to do so. KC talks about Houston and Hail, both formidable pass rushers where the O Line better hold up or Brady is doomed. But the same can be said for Alex Smith with Jones, Hightower, and Ninkovich breathing down his neck.

Who can stop Gronk? The Broncos need that guy. He just brushes most guys aside.

Brady will be playing in his 30th postseason game on Saturday. That ties him with Adam Vinatieri for the NFL record. It would be nice if they can get the win and Brady could break yet another postseason record the following weekend.

The Chiefs are a lot better than most people think they are. They actually should have won 3 of the games they lost in the first part of the season. They have many offensive dimensions and a top defense and they play well on the road in hostile environments.

These NFL playoffs with how the fans of other teams are approaching this Chiefs team is very much similar to the last two years the Royals in the playoffs. The Chiefs don't have any superstars, but they are a very good team and if the Patriots look past them for one second, they will lose the game.

The Patriots don't look past any teams. Doesn't mean they won't lose, but that's never the issue.

IMO the #1 key is the O-Line of the Patriots. If they continue to play bad, I think the Pats will lose.
