Even after the rough game today in Kansas City, we still have some street cred. On Sunday night, SportsCenter analyst Trent Dilfer was asked who he thought could compete with the New England Patriots, to which Dilfer did not hesitate and replied "I really believe that The Kansas City Chiefs could give the New England Patriots a lot of problems. Look back, teams that New England has struggled with are teams that have familiarity with the other staff (referring to Cassel), the Kansas City Chiefs could do a great job of defending this offense of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots".
The Chiefs last meeting with the New England Patriots was on September 7th, 2008 when the Chiefs Defense took Tom Brady out in the first quarter, consequently thrusting Matt Cassel into the spotlight for the first time in his NFL career. It would be very surreal indeed if the Chiefs end up meeting up with Cassel's old team. Hopefully Cassel has some juicy inside information from the time that he spent with the Patriots, who were caught taping opposing team's practices that same year.
