It wouldn’t be the NFL Playoffs without an appearance by the New England Patriots. Tom Brady, 38, and the 4-time Super Bowl Champions are looking to win a fifth Lombardi trophy. But standing in their way are the Kansas City Chiefs. Which team will rise to the occasion and which one will come crashing down?
The AFC Divisional match between these two teams will go down on Jan. 16. The Patriots are looking to leave their fans pumped with another playoff victory, but the Chiefs are looking to burst New England’s bubble. It all starts at 4:35 P.M. EST so don’t you miss a single moment of this epic game.
The Patriots are coming off from a bye-week, and they needed the time off to heal. Tom’s squad was a sure-fire lock for the No. 1 seed in the AFC, but a 20-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins blew it for the defending Super Bowl champions, per Fox News. Tom sure didn’t look like a future Hall of Famer, throwing for a season-low 21 passes. He was also sacked twice.
If the Patriots continue this poor performance, they can blow their Super Bowl 50 dreams good-bye. The team is looking for some redemption following the Deflate-Gate scandal that followed the Patriots to Super Bowl 49 and the post-season. Tom was initially suspended 4 games for his involvement in the ball-inflating cheating plot. When he appealed the decision, but the NFL claimed he destroyed evidence. However, Tom took the NFL to court and a federal judge overturned the suspension!
Despite all this drama with the Pats, the Chiefs are going into this game as the underdogs, according to SB Nation. Though they have 11 straight wins, they may play without wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who is injured. However, their star quarterback, Alex Smith, hopes to lead them to their first AFC Championship game since 1993.
Still, it’s anyone’s game. Rob Gronkowski reportedly missed the Patriots practice to receive treatment for his injured knee, according to SB Nation. Uh-oh, With Gronk possibly out, Tom may have to watch Super Bowl 50 with Giselle Bundchen and the kids at home.
Who do you want to win this game, HollywoodLifers? Are you pulling for the Pats or are you cheering on the Chiefs?
