Kansas City Chiefs @ New England Patriots
Thursday — 8:30 PM ET (NBC)
What a game to start the season.
The Patriots are still the class of the AFC, despite the fact that Tom Brady just turned 40. That guy doesn’t show any signs of slowing down in the near future.
But while I think New England is the best team in the AFC, they’re going to be tested right out of the gate in week one.
I really like the Chiefs in 2017. It should be fun watching the battle between them and the Oakland Raiders in the AFC West. Kansas City’s secondary could give Brady some trouble in the opener. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Chiefs pull off a sneaky upset in week one. They definitely have the talent to beat the Patriots.
And if you’re going to get to the Patriots, it’s best to do it early in the season.
Prediction: Chiefs 31 Patriots 30
