Beating the Patriots in New England seems to be just about impossible

The Kansas City Chiefs likely won’t get the No. 1 seed in the NFL playoffs. They might get the No. 2 seed which would give them a home playoff game. If the Chiefs want to make the Super Bowl, it seems likely they’ll have to win an AFC title game in New England. We talked earlier today how the Patriots are the worst playoff matchup for the Chiefs.

As it turns out, playing the Patriots in New England is the worst matchup for any team. This stat is just ludicrous.

The Ravens beat the Patriots in New England on the way to their 2012-3 Super Bowl win. The Patriots have been the best dynasty probably in NFL history. It’s fitting that the Chiefs would have to take them down if they want to end a 40-plus year Super Bowl drought.
