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.
Including last night, #Patriots QB Tom Brady has won 51 of his last 52 home starts vs AFC opponents... 120 passing TD, 17 INT in those games— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 13, 2016
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.
