The Patriots never seem to age, and as long as Tom Brady is under center, they will always be contenders. We all know that the Pats will be favored to win the AFC East, and are likely to be favorites out of the AFC for the Super Bowl.

I put them at number four, for the same reasons I just listed. Bill Belichick has a well oiled machine up in Boston, and 95% of the time, his team is prepared for their opponent. The good news is, the Chiefs get to host this time. The last time these two teams met, was 2011 on Monday Night Football, a game in which New England put the beat down on our beloved team.

The Patriots haven’t traveled to KC since 2005, when Tom Brady threw 4 interceptions, three of which went to safety, Greg Wesley. Trent Green also torched the New England secondary that day, throwing for 323 yards and one touchdown. Larry Johnson added 119 yards rushing and Kansas City would hand the defending Super Bowl champs a ten point loss.

Again, this is another game that is intriguing for a prime time spot, but then again, so are half the games on the Chiefs up coming schedule.
