NFL Week 6: Sunday Night Football Patriots vs Chiefs

Two AFC division leaders go head to head Sunday night in NFL week 6. Red-hot Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will hope to get the better of Tom Brady, who will be starting against the Chiefs for the ninth time in his career. Brady is 4-3 all-time against KC, with three of those wins at home. This week's game will be fourth straight primetime matchup between the Chiefs and Patriots. New England defeated Kansas City on a Monday Night game in 2011, lost on Monday Night in 2014 and fell to the Chiefs in a Thursday Night game last season. Thus, the Patriots will have extra incentive to avenge the previous two prime-time losses this Sunday.

Sunday's game will be a real test for the Patriots, who have been having issues defending against good passing teams, and KC happens to have possibly the best QB in the league right now. Recently, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick had some notable praise for QB Mahomes.

"He gets the ball to all of his receivers quick. Quick release, sees things quickly, can extend plays," Belichick said, per the Boston Herald. "[He's] got a great arm, got a fabulous arm, can throw the ball out of the stadium. He makes good decisions, accurate, gets the ball out on time. He can throw it, run it, does a good job of reading coverages, gets the ball to his playmakers in space and creates space for them so they can make a lot of plays."

Last week, New England’s defense surrendered 376 passing yards and four touchdowns in a 31-20 road loss at Jacksonville in Week 2. Mahomes will undoubtedly be a threat to the Patriots' defense, as he leads the NFL in touchdowns so far this season with 14, while only throwing two interceptions. To make matters worse, Patriot's starting DT Malcolm Brown has been limited in practice after suffering a knee injury.

As for the Chiefs, they should be brimming with confidence coming into this high-profile game, as they are one of two teams left undefeated in the league at 5-0. Their talent pool goes far beyond Mahomes, with Travis Kelce at TE and WR Tyreek Hill, who has 27 receptions on the season, nine of which have gone for over 20 yards. The only chink in the Chief's armor appears to be their defense, which ranks dead last in the league in yards per game (461). Either way, the Chiefs will be a tough draw for the Patriots, who are still trying to find their footing this season.

Injury-wise for the Chiefs, linebacker Justin Houston (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday and safety Eric Berry (heel) has yet to play this season.

In head to head competition, the Chiefs and the Patriots have played 35 times, with Kansas City getting 18 wins to the Pats' 14.
