    Do you think that the Rams, Saints, or Chiefs can beat New England?

    Do you see an upset in the upcoming weeks? When they lost to the Jaguars, Lions, & Titans?

    I think they lose to the Dolphins this week. Seems like they always get upset by a team in their division each year.

    All 3 of those teams can beat the Patriots, chances are better if the game isn’t in Foxboro...

    As for the rest of the season, the Pats have only shown up to about half their games in Miami so it wouldn’t be shocking to me at all if they lost this weekend, it is a division clinching game though so who knows...

    @ Dolphins or @Pitt are both possible losses. Oddly enough, @ Miami might be more likely as the Pats nearly always play like crap in Miami in December.

    They often have issues in Miami, too

    Rams and saints would be in the Super Bowl so neutral field in good conditions.

    Chiefs, comes down to home field imo.
    Biggest tests for KC are LAC at home and on the road in hostile Seattle. Have Baltimore at home and Oakland at home.

    Pats like others have said are the road games against Miami and Pittsburgh.

    I wouldn't discount Houston either. They lost to them up there by 7 this year and 3 last year (with no Watt). They played them tough up there in the 2016 playoffs too.

    Houston has a relatively easy schedule the rest of the way too. Colts at home this week, then at the Jets, at the Eagles and finish at home vs. Jacksonville. It's not entirely inconceivable that Houston could win out (although a 13-game win streak would be something) and pass New England if the Patriots trip up somewhere. Then maybe get them at home instead of going to Foxboro yet again.

    Heck it's the NFL, anyone can beat anyone on a given day.

    Brees in a dome is always scary for the opposing team.

    Their biggest threat is the possibility of having to go on the road in January and leave Foxboro.

    Brady has only won 3 true road playoff games in his career.

    Biggest threat is still the Chiefs and having to play at Arrowhead. I think the Chiefs still end up with the 1 seed and Patriots with the 2 seed. Though I could see the Chiefs getting knocked off early in the playoffs and the Patriots being at home in the AFCCG.

    Their biggest threat is age.

    Pats don't want to travel in January (See: AFC-CG's at Denver)

    Agreed. He is 41. He's been "old" for years now

    I think hes been pretty average this year overall though. Hes had some great games thrown in and is still protecting the ball well, but for him those stats are an average season

    Pats can't play on the road. If they go in to Arrowhead they're going to lose.

    Good point. Their real biggest threat is not cakewalking their way through their division to home field advantage through the AFC championship game.

    Arrowhead will be tough but KC is inexperienced.

    Mahomes has a ton of high character victories under his belt already though. He's gone into Denver twice already and lead game winning drives in the 4th quarter. Then the win today was a huge gut check win.

    New England played their best game of the season against the Chiefs and despite Mahomes having the first half of his career so far they still only beat the Chiefs with a walkoff field goal in New England. You never know what can happen, but I like the Chiefs a lot in a rematch at Arrowhead.
