Patriots vs. Chiefs: Picks, odds for AFC championship game in Kansas City

Will Chiefs or Patriots be left out in cold after AFC championship game Un-'Patriot'-ic? Data shows America really doesn't want New England in the Super Bowl this year
Shannon Reynolds | 20 January, 2019, 23:55

Kickoff is set for 6:40 p.m. ET, with temperates now expected to be relatively seasonal.

It's the battle of two potent offenses and two mastermind head coaches, but the biggest storyline is likely between both signal callers.

Here's Phil Simms, Boomer Esiason, Steve Smith and Lewis making their picks for Patriots-Chiefs on Showtime's "Inside The NFL" - with Lewis as the lone dissenter picking Kansas City to win.

The tried-and-true formula to beating New England is getting to Brady, but few teams can actually do it. Kansas City pass-rushers Dee Ford and Justin Houston gave Indianapolis offensive tackles fits in the divisional round, and Chris Jones completes one of the league's best pass-rushing trios.

Sarri Chelsea working hard on Higuain deal Morata suffering difficult moment
Bayern Munich confirmed on Wednesday that they are in talks with Chelsea over buying Callum Hudson-Odoi. They have held talks with Atletico Madrid over the striker's possible return to Spain.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Chiefs are 3-point favorites to beat the Patriots. He's still got plenty of time left to build his legacy.

This is just the news the Chiefs fan base needed to hear. They had no answer for Mahomes or the speedy Tyreek Hill, who torched the Patriots secondary for 140 yards and two touchdowns.

While Allen said it as respectfully as possible, openly advocating for Tom Brady and the Patriots to lose, is only going to earn you props from the Bills Mafia. The over/under is 57.5.

The Patriots claimed the second seed in the AFC by winning the AFC East, while the Chiefs won their tie-breaker with the Los Angeles Chargers and took the No. 1 seed by clinching the AFC West. They're a good team. Everybody thinks we suck and that we can't win any games.
