"He got it to everybody on the field and he's a great quarterback".

That conclusion should have been self-evident.

The Patriots finished the game without punting and were not charged with a penalty. "For me to roll right and avoid the guy and swing the ball around with really no chance to complete it", he said.

Jason Myers kicked a team-record seven field goals to help the New York Jets to a surprising 42-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts while Jason Sanders kicked a last-second field goal for the Miami Dolphins to see them beat the Chicago Bears in overtime.

The greatest quarterback of all time dueling the most exciting young quarterback in the NFL.

"Wannabe" isn't meant to demean the Chiefs.

It used to be the same here. "They're going to be pretty tough to stop, so glad we had our last shot and glad we took advantage of it". "In the end, we were able to just do a little bit more, do enough". He proved to anyone watching the game that he remains the best tight end in the league and his clutch play ended up being a key reason why Kansas City is no longer unbeaten. Then Hill turned on the jets, outrunning Patriots defenders for a game-tying 75-yard touchdown.

The score was Hill's third touchdown of the game and when he got to the end zone, he definitely didn't get a warm welcome. And so did Brady after we spent more than a week marveling at the arm and composure of Mahomes.

Not all the dirty details, but the fact that both teams would go up and down the field on each other.

There's one huge thing I'm anxious about though: the defense.

But we also learned that Mahomes has it in him to rebound on the road against a dynasty. It's nearly become normal to see the Patriots down by one score in the fourth quarter and feel at it. Finally, the quarterback made a decision to take care of business himself and took off. Brady was hit as he crossed the goal line, but hung on to the ball, scoring a 4-yard touchdown to make it, 37-33 Patriots.

It took one play to even things up.

"He made a lot of big [throws]", Brady said. I don't think we've seen our best.

Five-time Super Bowl victor Brady had seen a 24-9 half-time lead evaporate as second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes led an astonishing second-half fight-back from the Chiefs to prove that he really could be the next big star of the NFL. The incident occurred in the fourth quarter of the Patriots' 43-40 win over the Chiefs. I'm satisfied we were treated to this instead.
