The Chiefs, fresh off their first playoff victory in my lifetime, are in New England to face the champs. Kansas City is on an absolute tear, but that doesn’t make this game any less daunting. The sentence “Andy Reid and Alex Smith beat Bill Belichick and Tom Brady at home in the playoffs” sounds preposterous no many how many times I say it to myself. Yet, it isn’t hard for me to imagine a scenario where the Chiefs win, especially when you factor in the injury troubles of the Patriots and that they stumbled into the playoffs, losing four of their last six games.
