Which team will win the AFC Championship: Patriots or Chiefs?
Another year, another AFC Championship appearance for the New England Patriots. While it may be boring to other teams, the Pats are a model of consistency and excellence rarely seen in the NFL. This year's iteration of the squad still depends on the accurate arm of Tom Brady, who has been slinging short passes with great ease, dinking and dunking his way to 4,355 passing yards—but the true genius is in the coaching.
Bill Belichick has seen roster turnover year after year, but the results have been mostly the same. His ability to game plan and get the most out of his players consistently is unparalleled and there's no way Kansas City will have an answer for his tactics. The Chiefs already showed their ineptitude Week 6 when they lost to New England. The Patriots are going to the Super Bowl... again.
Week 6 was a long time ago and the Kansas City Chiefs aren't the same team they were in October. Fans don't have to worry about the Chiefs putting up points in the cold after the team's 31-spot against the Indianapolis Colts. Kansas City also showed they can shut teams down, holding a hot Colts team to 176 passing yards and 87 rushing yards. If the Pats think this team is the same one they saw earlier in the year, they are in for a rude awakening.
The last time these two teams met, it was in Foxborough. But the AFC Championship will be hosted by Kansas City in one of the loudest stadiums in the entire league. There is no way New England will thrive in that environment. The Chiefs will go to the Super Bowl.
