The KC Chiefs went into Foxborough and took down the hated Patriots by a score of 23-16. The win gave the Chiefs their fourth straight AFC West title and secured them a spot in the playoffs.
What a win for the Kansas City Chiefs!
While the New England Patriots look to be as “vulnerable” as they have been in recent years, this is still an impressive win no matter how you spin it because the Chiefs went into Foxboro and came out with a win. The last team to do so were the Panthers in 2017 (and the Chiefs had done it earlier that season).
At 9-4 and with the Texans losing, the Chiefs now move into the three spot in the AFC playoffs and now hold the head-to-head over both of the top two teams. That could prove pivotal down the stretch for sure.
Without further ado, let’s check out the winners and the losers from this big win, starting with a winner.
WINNER: TANOH KPASSAGNON
One of the most surprising players this year has without a doubt been Tanoh Kpassagnon, who did little in his first two seasons, but has come alive in year three. Kpassagnon made his presence the most known in this game when he blocked a Patriots field goal, which kept three points off the board for the Pats.
Kpassagnon also finished the night with two tackles and a quarterback hit. He might not be a full-fledged star just yet, but at least he’s making plays and beginning to live up to that second round label.
