Patriots - Chiefs: Gameballs and Goats

The New England Patriots failed miserably on offense giving the ball away four times. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady set a career record he didn't want by throwing four interceptions, three to Greg Wesley. The Kansas City offense lived up to it's hype of having a good running back in Larry Johnson, and a solid quarterback in Trent Green. The Chiefs rolled up 420 yards on the Patriots overmatched defense, improving their record to 7-4 while the Patriots fall to 6-5

In a game the Patriots were trying to focus on, injuries and lack of cohesion on offense lead to their downfall. Tom Brady was errant most of the game throwing balls high or behind receivers as he concentrated too much on the rush in front of him. Even when there wasn't a great deal of pressure, Brady was making bad throws in between the good ones.

In the end, the Kansas City Chiefs early lead proved too much to overcome, eerily similar to the Patriots game against the Denver Broncos.
