KANSAS CITY @ NEW ENGLAND | 10/14 | 8:20 PM EDT
Tom Brady, the New England Patriots’ 41-year-old quarterback, is the ruling MVP, has actually thrown 500 goal passes, has actually won five Super Bowls and will be aiming to become the first quarterback to win 200 regular-season games in Sunday night’s game versus the Kansas City Chiefs in Foxborough, Mass
. Yet he will share the spotlight with Kansas City’s 23-year-old quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, who has actually begun just six NFL games in his career.
Mahomes has thrown a league-leading 14 touchdown passes with simply two interceptions this season while leading the Chiefs to a 5-0 start and directing an offense that averages 35.0 points per game, which ranks 2nd in the NFL.
Brady has 12 touchdown passes with six interceptions for the Patriots, who are 3-2 and rank connected for ninth in scoring at 26.6 points per contest.
KANSAS CITY +3.5
So, one team is undefeated straight-up, already with road wins against the L.A. Chargers, Pittsburgh and Denver — yet it is on the receiving end of a field-goal plus. Say no more. Except this: QB Patrick Mahomes and pals have sliced through defenses equal to or better than New England’s. A pair of wins at home appears to have left the public head-over-heels with the Patriots, a common occurrence. Until the Chiefs falter, take the points.
