Patriots show championship mettle in wild win over Chiefs

Luckily enough for the New England Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs were happy to oblige.

And, in the end, there was Stephen Gostkowski knocking through a chip shot field goal to give the Patriots an epic 43-40 win as time expired.

At least one streak is going to be snapped this weekend in the Chiefs-Patriots tilt, as Kansas City is also putting their unbeaten 5-0 record this season on the line against Tom Brady and company.

Tom Brady passed for 340 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score in his 200th victory as a starting quarterback, tops all-time.


Through four games, Kelce has 28 receptions for 407 yards and three touchdowns.

A Patriots defense that forced two turnovers in the first half suddenly became vulnerable to the big play after halftime.

Full recap to come...

Mahomes' first half was one to forget.


But Kansas City kept coming.

The Chiefs' dynamic quarterback had thrown just two interceptions over the first five games compared to 14 touchdowns.

First, Mahomes broke through with a 67-yard touchdown pass to Kareem Hunt. After kicking a field goal to take a 30-26 lead, the Pats allowed a 96-yard kick return by Tremon Smith down the visitors' sideline.

The Patriots set the tone early with the running game, racking up 74 yards on the ground in the first quarter. That tied the game, but again that satisfaction did not last long. Unfortunately, that lead did not hold, as the Chiefs defense handed Brady a rushing touchdown. 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.
