Do the Chiefs have enough weapons to win in Foxboro on a banner night?


If they do, it will be because special teams and defense also stepped up to impact the scoreboard. It will be a Tyreek Hill punt return or a Marcus Peters interception return or a Justin Houston strip sack.


Yes, they do. The Chiefs should be bringing an improved run game over last year, and will also feature Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill in the passing game. That gives them a good mix of ball-control offense and big play ability. Kansas City is also very dangerous in the return game and features one of the most opportunistic defenses in the NFL. The Chiefs have also shown over the past couple of years that they can match-up with just about anyone in the NFL. The Patriots should certainly be the favorite in this game, but you would be foolish to count Kansas City out of it.
