The New England Patriots have made it to the AFC Conference Championship for eight straight years, but they won’t be satisfied with just another appearance. After last year’s upset loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl, Bill Belichick’s squad is relishing the idea of being underdogs in the postseason. The Patriots made the Los Angeles Chargers, one of the hottest teams of the regular season, look like it didn’t belong in the postseason in the divisional round, and now face a high-powered Chiefs offense that has given their team problems in the recent past.

If you’re going off experience, it’s hard to bet against future Hall of Famer and possibly the greatest quarterback to ever play the game Tom Brady, who is no stranger to the postseason. The ageless quarterback threw for 29 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions while rookie running back Sony Michel has led New England’s running back group with 931 yards and six touchdowns in the regular season. Wide receiver Julian Edelman and tight end Rob Gronkowski continue to be Brady’s favorite targets whenever they’re on the field, and it’s hard to count out any team that’s being led by Belichick, another lock for the Hall of Fame.

The Kansas City Chiefs, on the other hand, find themselves in unfamiliar territory. Despite having the second-longest current streak of postseason appearances with four (behind the Patriots, who have 10), the Chiefs have not won the AFC since it won Super IV. The Chiefs avoided another early trip home by handling the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round behind their high-power offense.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes put together an incredible season in his first full campaign as the starter under center with more than 5,000 passing yards, 50 touchdowns, and just 12 interceptions. The backfield has overcome the losses of Kareem Hunt, who was released, and Spencer Ware, who has been injured, with former third-stringer Damien Williams showing he is more than capable, carrying the ball 25 times for 129 yards and a touchdown while adding another five catches for 25 yards against the Colts’ vaunted rush defense. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill is having another fantastic year, with 12 receiving touchdowns during the regular season and a rushing touchdown against the Colts last week.

The Chiefs lead the overall series with the Patriots 18-15-3, but New England has the only postseason victory in the series with a 27-20 win in Foxborough back in 2016. Betters are favoring the Chiefs by a field goal at home in Arrowhead this time around, but as we’ve seen year after year, you can never count the Patriots out whenever its January.
