After easily beating the Indianapolis Colts, the Chiefs can expect a much tougher opponent from New England. In the Divisional Round, the Chiefs bounced the Colts 31-13.

New England punched their ticket to the AFC Championship game by handling the LA Chargers 41-28. With the Patriots experience in the playoffs, as well as cold weather, could this be a game the Patriots win?

Sony Michel was a beast in last week’s game. Michel rushed for 129 yards and scored 3 touchdowns en route to the victory. Julian Edelman recorded 151 yards while Phillip Dorsett also added a touchdown in the win.

Patrick Mahomes threw for 278 yards but managed zero touchdown passes. He was also sacked four times. Damien Williams rushed for 129 yards and punched in one touchdown. Travis Kelce had a huge day with 108 yards. Can the Chiefs and Patriots keep up their offensive production this Sunday?

A lot is riding on this game. The Chiefs have not made the AFC Championship game since 1993 when they lost. The Chiefs’ last Super Bowl appearance came in 1969 when they were still in the AFL.
