  1. 7-0 against playoff teams this season. Beat the #1, #2, and #3 ranked teams in DVOA in the postseason. Facing Philip Rivers, Patrick Mahomes and then Jared Goff, the Patriots defense allowed them to complete just 50 percent of their passes combined (60-of-120). Not much anyone can say about that.
  2. The Chiefs and Rams were the two highest scoring teams in the highest scoring season in NFL history. Time it took them each to score a point vs the Patriots in the postseason: Chiefs: 32:04 minutes Rams: 42:49 minutes
  3. Great teams don't do stupid #### when it matters most, like lineup offsides on a critical play. An all time bad call didn't make Drew Brees throw an interception in OT either. You're an idiot, PERIOD.
  4. Brees sucked the last quarter of the season. Chiefs got exposed by the Patriots 2 weeks ago. The better team won tonight. Eat it Doctor
  5. Yes because we know the Patriots get all the calls in their favor... of course a Squealers fan would say that too
  6. They've done this the past few SB appearances, it's become routine for them. Plus they had a walkthrough on Thursday
  7. Legitimately, I'm surprised that hardly anyone one has talked about Goff's splits this season. Goff in the regular season, when Kupp was in the lineup (10 games): 227/332 (68.37%), 313.4 Y/G, 2.2 TD/G, 0.6 Int/G, 113.0 PR, 9.95 AY/A. That's in the same range as Mahomes and Brees. Goff in the regular season, without Kupp in the lineup (6 games): 137/229 (59.83%), 259.0 Y/G, 1.7 TD/G, 1 Int/G, 83.9 PR, 6.48 AY/A. Goff in the playoffs (still no Kupp, 2 games): 40/68 (58.8%), 0.5 TD/G, 0.5 Int/G, 79.5 PR, 6.70 AY/A. That's in the same range as Bortles and Keenum. In the back half of the season, the Rams have been winning despite Goff, not because of him. Since the start of December, Goff has had two games over 100 PR, his games against San Francisco and against Arizona: two teams who allowed over 400 points on the season who basically had nothing to play for but the top seeds. If it was Brady playing like this, we'd have pundits falling out of trees to deliver their "is Brady finally finished" hot takes.
  8. Jared Goff when kept clean: • Comp%: 72.1% • Yards/attempt: 9.1 • TD-INT: 28-7 Jared Goff when under pressure: • Comp%: 43.4% • Yards/attempt: 6.0 • TD-INT: 5-6 I think the Patriots will be looking heavily at the Lions and Bears games against the Rams from earlier in the season. The Lions figured out how to stop the Rams’ offense, just weren’t good enough to beat them. Vic Fangio saw what the Lions were doing and basically copied it. Eagles also followed suit and had success.
  9. McVay is great, he'll be prepared.. but Goff isn't anywhere close to Mahomes. He's one of the worst QBs in the league under pressure, and once he can't hear McVay in his ear when he's got 10 seconds left on the play clock, he's going to face a tough challenge as Belichick and Flores will throw everything they can at him to try and confuse him.
  10. Tom Brady has thrown the ball 90 times in the postseason. Against Bosa, Ingram, Jones, Ford and Houston. He's not been sacked yet. The Patriots offensive line and legendary OL coach Dante Scarnecchia are killing it.
  11. Mediocre defense? Lol. They just held the 3rd highest scoring offense in history to 0 points in the first half yesterday. Just because they didn't look good in October and November means nothing. The Chiefs vaunted pass rush, who had the #1 pass rush in the league at home, only had 4 pressures all game and didn't get to Brady once. Gonna be a long game for Suh and Donald. Brady has had plenty of experience against Talib and Wade coached defenses. Patriots are that team that gets hot at the right time late in the season and roll it into a Super Bowl win. Patriots 34-20
  12. Just like Kelce ate them alive earlier in the season, right? Also.. basing your opinions off of what Cynthia Freylund think... Gronk has been a great blocker this season, and helped the run game in a big way despite his low production. and don't be surprised if he has a big game against the corpse of Eric Berry. When did AB and JuJu have big games against them this season? They lost obviously but that was more on the offense. Steelers only put up 17pts and JC Jackson locked down JuJu, he only had 40yds and AB only had 49yds.
  13. The Chiefs literally play in Denver once a year because they are in the same division, your argument is weak. The Patriots have won IN Denver the last 2 times they've played there. There are many teams besides the Patriots that have struggled with the altitude there, it's a legitimate home field advantage.
  14. Jam 8 in the box and try to stop the run with Brady at QB? Lol. He will dice up that weak Chiefs secondary over and over again if they attempt that. 1. They've literally played in 2 other AFC Championship on the road since 2006. 2015 against one of the best defenses of the last 10 years and they played terrible and only lost by 2pts, and it came down to the last play. Hell they shouldve won that game and Brady was on his ### all day. They were ravaged with injuries that 2013 season against Peyton's "historic" Broncos offense. No Mayo, Wilfork, Gronk, Vollmer, Spikes, Talib (for most of the AFC Championship). Austin Collie and Matthew Mulligan were starting on offense. Edelman was there, and Dola was too but it was his first season with the Patriots and he wasn't much of a factor then. 5 of their defensive starters were lost due to injury. Jamie Collins was strictly a special teamer all season until the playoffs. This season they are probably the healthiest team left. 2. Arrowhead will be nuts, but if the Patriots get off to a fast start early, it'll suck the energy right out of that place, especially with it being so damn cold. 3. KC has been better at home, but they played 6 cupcake teams, with the only good teams being the Ravens and Chargers. And both scored 20+ points. 4. KC has great weapons, no doubt. But the Patriots secondary is their greatest strength and the best left in the playoffs and they've only gotten better as the season has gone on. Hill is really the only one who's a major concern. They limited Kelce early in the season, Watkins will most likely be covered by Gilmore, and D.Williams is a career 3.4ypc undrafted RB who's played well in their scheme but certainly isn't an explosive playmaker like Hunt. 5. If it's below 10 degrees, it will definitely be a factor. I'm not sure why people think it won't be. 6. The Patriots o-line has been one of their best in recent memory, they've done an amazing job protecting Brady and after watching them make Bosa and Ingram completely invisible, I'll take my chances that the KC pass rush doesn't get to Brady often.
  15. If the game is played in single digits, it should play into the Patriots favor. The Chiefs thrive on big plays from dynamic playmakers like Mahomes, Hill and Kelce. But if the freezing temperatures dictate a ground-heavy game flow, the Patriots would seem to have the advantage. The passing game won’t be as explosive and routes aren’t as crisp and top speed (Hill) slower. Turns into an old school running game.
