That's part of the reason Brady believes the New England offense can be much, much better than what we saw out of them Sunday night. Yeah, he's just another notch on the Patriots belt this morning, another under-25 quarterback that lost to the Patriots at Gillette, but he's the wind beneath the Chiefs wings now.
The Patriots extended the lead to 30-26, but a Tremon Smith 97-yard kickoff return got the Chiefs to the 3, where they faced a third-and-1.
"I'm always confident when Tom Brady goes out there", Harmon said.
The Patriots came away with the 43-40 victory over the Chiefs on Sunday night, and a number of New England players talked about the Chiefs and how well they played in the game. Following the game, there were a lot of players in the Patriots locker room who seemed in awe of Hill's speed. The hesitation to tackle or guard in turn means that the opposition gets terrific field position and consequently more points on the board.
Those on the field on Sunday who have played with Brady before knew what was about to happen.
Down the stretch, there were a lot of great plays made by both sides, but it ended up being a field goal by Stephen Gostkowski as time expired that ended it. He made four in the second, with none bigger than his first-down catch in the final 90 seconds.
If ever there was a way for Patrick Mahomes to lose his first game, this was it. 43-40 against the best dynasty in National Football League history. "For me to roll right and avoid the guy and swing the ball around with really no chance to complete it", he said. He put the Chiefs in bad spots in the first half for the first time with his two interceptions. However, with the Chiefs suffering their first loss of the season in a shootout with the Patriots, it looks like there's going to be a little bit of a shake up with the NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 7. It got a spark from who's become an unlikely source in recent weeks. From there, Brady ran it and shifted over to better set up Gostkowski's 28-yard attempt, which he easily hit and sent everyone at Gillette Stadium home happy.
Those two scoring plays were two longest receiving plays of the season by a Patriots opponent and Hill's 75-yard touchdown matches the 75-yard touchdown he scored back in Week 1 of 2017 which, coincidentally, came in the 4th quarter of the Chiefs win in Foxboro.
"I was pretty excited; I was just hoping that he didn't get hurt", Hogan joked when asked about Brady's touchdown run.
