The Patriots seemed to be on their way to another dominant season early in the year, but with two losses in their past four games, New England suddenly appears vulnerable.
Kansas City also entered the year with high hopes, but after opening 4-0, the Chiefs lost four of their next six games, taking the luster off last year’s AFC championship run.

So, both teams will be looking to re-establish themselves as threats for the AFC Championship, where they played an instant classic last year. It’s unlikely either the Chiefs or the Patriots will fail to win their respective divisions, but with the Ravens looking dominant and owning wins over both Kansas City and New England, the AFC race has become something of a runaway in the eyes of some.
A dominant performance from either team during their Week 14 meeting in Foxborough would help restore their contender status.
