The victorious team meets the winner of the host New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams from the NFC title game in the Super Bowl on February 3 in Atlanta, Georgia. The stakes are so much higher since the Chiefs and Patriots last met back on October 14, 2018, in Foxborough, Massachusetts. New England edged Kansas City, 43-40, in Week 6 at Gillette Stadium on Patriots kicker Steve Gostkowsiki’s tiebreaking 28-yard field goal with no time remaining. It was the first loss of the season for the Chiefs, who would go on and secure a 12-4 regular-season mark to capture the AFC West crown and home-field advantage all through the playoffs. The Patriots, 11-5 in the regular season, are the No. 2 seed.
“We didn’t feel good,” recalled Mahomes when asked about the previous meeting, where he struggled in the first half, throwing a pair of interceptions. “I feel like we didn’t play our best, especially early in the game. When you play teams of this caliber, when you play teams with this much history of knowing how to win and capitalizing on people’s mistakes, you can’t come back and win games like that. “It was shown that game. For us, we have to learn from that, know we can’t make those mistakes and that we have to come out with our best effort from the beginning of the game all the way through the end. It’s going to be a dog fight for the entire game if you want to try to come out with the win.”
