Many analysts claimed the Patriots were set to go undefeated this season after picking up players like Brandin Cooks, Stephon Gilmore, and Mike Gillislee, and keeping hold of most of the key players on their roster. Plays such as Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith connecting with running back Kareem Hunt for a 78-yard touchdown. "Now look, we did a few things but it just wasn't good enough". The Chiefs may have lost star safety Eric Berry for the season due to an Achilles' injury.
His 148 rushing yards tied with Cadillac Williams for the fourth-most rushing yards in an National Football League debut. Hunt also caught five passes for 98-yards and two touchdowns. Smith then struck again on their next scoring drive, hitting Chris Conley for a 25-yard pass to get the Chiefs to the Patriots 15-yard line.
By the way, before Hunt fumbled on his first attempt, he gained 8 yards. He would score a third touchdown to reclaim the lead in the third quarter. Losing the dynamic Tyreek Hill could have an impact, but Smith could be one of the more interesting fantasy players this season if he keeps up this aggressive style. He only had five catches for 40 yards.
The question had not been when the New England Patriots would lose but if they would lose. It was a very boastful evening in Foxborough. Before anyone rushes to put next month's rent money on another team to win the Super Bowl, be advised: The paragraph above also describes the Warriors after opening night of the 2016-17 National Basketball Association season. Too bad New England was not competitive in the fourth quarter. Bill Belichick let Tom Brady go out there and run his offense as he normally does, and things looked good, but the running game is a problem already. Injuries are starting to pile up for this team. Even after Julian Edelman suffered a season ending ACL tear there still appeared to be considerable depth at wide receiver.
Adding to the tough opening night for the Patriots was an injury to defensive captain Dont'a Hightower. "That's going to be a big point of emphasis for all of us".
Yes, that's unheard of in these parts, especially on a night when the team was celebrating not only last year's Super Bowl victory - unveiling the Super Bowl LI banner - but its Super Bowl championship legacy. He was the one who stuffed the run on an early fourth-down run and was great in coverage on tight end Rob Gronkowski - which is no easy task.
