I'm disappointed that I started James White this game. Wasn't thinking that Gillisee was going to be the goal line back. If White can find a seem I'm in good shape. With Edelman out, it's a big year for Hogan and Cooks. Big for Gronk too, but he can't seem to stay healthy.

I was very close to drafting Gileslee but it is too hard to trust Belicheck with the RB rotation. I did figure Gilislee would get a good amount of TDs though, but not sure about total yardage.

Is it just me or is Brady sailing more balls high and away then is usual for him? Seems like everyone that has gone to Hogan and Allen has been difficult to catch at best.

Just how this game is playing out, it seems like Amendola and the running game will move the ball mostly. Cooks, Hogan, and Gronk seem to be used for medium and deep threats mostly in this game. Penalties have helped the Pats twice to get within the goal line for Gillisee to score.

I see Brady imitated/borrowed/copied Rodgers exact hard count. Word for word. At least he gave credit to the Packers at the start of the count & called a 'Green Bay.'

"Green Bay, Green 19, Green 19 HUT." Offsides, free play, to the end zone

A bit to fix after last night's game, luckily there are 16 of them. The ship will get righted. Credit to KC though, their coverage was tight all night.

The talking head preseason predictions look a little silly, many were saying an easy schedule, could be 16-0! KC has a good team on both sides of the ball, great coach and they were ready. Pats need to shake the dust off, get back to work.

I thought the Pats were going to run away with it in the first quarter. I was wrong. I wouldn't count the Pats out. Not by a long shot.

That loss could be a good thing for the Pats, at least it gets rid of all that foolish talk of "Perfect Season". That was never gonna happen to begin with.....even with Julian out there.

The notion that the Patriots could go 19-0 was thrown around by certain members of the media to create a buzz for themselves and to get people fired up. I think it's fair to say that us Patriots fans were fired up for this season and confident this team will make another serious run for a title. But going 19-0? No way.

Last night was a reminder of how tough this league can be. Let's also not forget that Kansas City is a good football team - they were the #2 seed in the AFC last year after all.

A positive from the game last night was the running game. Burkhead, White, Lewis and Gillislee all looked pretty good and should give a lot of teams problems defending. Hopefully the concussion Amendola suffered is not too bad, the nice thing is that they have 3 extra days of rest before making the trip down to New Orleans a week from Sunday.
