The New England Patriots (10-2) get ready to battle against Patrick Mahomes II, Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs (8-4) in an AFC showdown.
In the words of the great Terrell Owens, get your popcorn ready because this should be a good one. In an AFC Championship game rematch, the Kansas City Chiefs invade Foxborough to take on a New England Patriots team coming off a loss and facing some adversity on the offensive side of the football.
In a game that will ultimately come down to how that Patriots defense handle Patrick Mahomes II, Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, LeSean McCoy and them boys, Tom Brady and the Patriots offense will ultimately determine if the home team comes out on top.
We all know Andy Reid and his team will be foaming at the mouth for some revenge and further proof they can win at Gillette Stadium, but how will the defending Super Bowl champions respond after a loss?

Furthermore, can Brady and the offense get something going against a Chiefs defense that has been better this season, but still has some vulnerability?
Still, besides the skill level the Kansas City Chiefs have on offense, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick knows the defense will present some problems for his offense in this AFC showdown between two teams familiar with one another.
"“Defensively, they’ve got the takeaways, and they’ve hit the plus-side on that and that’s always a big key for their defense when they can take the ball away,” Belichick said during his press conference Wednesday, via Patriots.com. “So, got a lot of ball hawking-type players over there on the defensive side of the ball, and we’re going to have to do a good job there of making sure that we take good care of it. This’ll be a good opportunity, a good challenge for us.”"
