Brady, Patriots top Chiefs for wild 43-40 win

Week 6 DFS Vegas Report

Week 6 DFS Vegas Report

There will be a few storylines to keep your eyes on in this one.

The Kansas City Chiefs and the sensational rookie Pat Mahomes improved to 5-0 last week in knocking off the Jacksonville Jaguars. That's why the best defense may be the offense.

Patriots are 37-18-2 ATS in their last 57 games following a straight up win.

The eye test says the Chiefs look like the better team. Brady also passed former teammate Adam Vinatieri for most career wins in the regular season and playoffs combined with 227.

Thanks to Hill, it took them only one play to do exactly that.

Speaking on a conference call this week, Mahomes said he watched Brady a lot in college at Texas Tech. The price tags on players for showdown slates are far different than normal games, and you'll also select a captain who costs 1.5-times the salary but also earns 1.5x the points. "So going against a team that's 5-0, there's really no margin for error and we're going to have to do a great job of possessing the ball and try to score as many points as we can". All week there has been debate on who is the current top tight end in the NFL. The 2018 Patriots showed Sunday night they are capable of that. The debate may not be settled come the end of the game, but both will factor into the success of their offenses.

But Kansas City kept coming.

The Kansas City Chiefs are the flavor of the month in the AFC.

With security blanket Julian Edelman back from suspension, Tom Brady looks like himself again.




The Patriots, however, scored touchdowns on each of their final three drives of the first half.

For live updates of the game, see below. Hightower returned the interception 27 yards to the Kansas City 4 yard line.

The New England Patriots made the ultimate mistake and it burned them. He quickly got the Patriots back into scoring position, finding Gronkowski for a 39-yard completion to the Chiefs 9 with 17 seconds left in the game.

The Patriots defense knew how good the Chiefs offense was going in, it just needed to take advantage of whatever it could to slow it down.

Michel ran it in one play later to give the Patriots a 10-3 lead 10 minutes into the first quarter. In the end, the Chiefs left too much time for Brady and the Patriots to come up clutch. His third field goal of the night.

The 41-year-old completed 24-of-35 passes for 340 yards and a touchdown in New England's win. That shift resulted in a drastic reduction in snaps for fellow wideout Phillip Dorsett, who was on the field for just three after playing 40-plus in each of the team's first five games. The Patriots ground away at a poor Chiefs defense that really didn't stop New England's offense after the first possession of the game.

Gordon was targeted a team-high nine times, finishing with five catches for 42 yards.

Patriots 27, Chiefs 19 3:40 3rd QTR - Chiefs cut the lead to 8 on a 30-yard field goal by Butker.

Through four games, Kelce has 28 receptions for 407 yards and three touchdowns. That they missed felt inconsequential soon after when it became clear that the Chiefs appeared satisfied with kicking field goals early on, assuming that either (a) their explosive offense could make up for it or (b) their tired defense could do ... something. Three plays later, Mahomes tossed a 1-yard touchdown pass to Hill.
