Patriots. vs. Chiefs 2019: Date Time, TV schedule, and how to watch AFC Championship online.

Chiefs vs. Patriots: 2019 AFC Championship Game

When these two teams met in the regular season, it was as close as it can get. A total of 30 points were scored in the fourth quarter alone, but the Patriots made out with a 43-40 victory, despite four touchdowns from Patrick Mahomes. Tom Brady only tossed one touchdown, but didn’t throw an interception while Mahomes was picked off twice.

It was a very evenly-matched game, but New England’s superior defense made just enough stops (it wasn’t a great day for them by any means) to let the Patriots sneak through with a win.

Both teams had bye weeks in the wild card round of the playoffs, and both teams made it through their divisional round games much easier than their NFC counterparts (the Rams and Saints) were able to do. While those NFC games were close, the Patriots walked through the Chargers, winning 41-28, and the Chiefs made short work of Andrew Luck and the Colts, winning 31-13.

Below is all you need to know to watch the action on Sunday.

Odds: The Chiefs opened as 3.5-point favorites, making the Patriots a rare underdog, per OddsShark.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will be playing in their eighth consecutive AFC Championship Game on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, they’ll be in the rare position of being the underdog as they travel to Arrowhead Stadium for a 6:40 p.m. ET kickoff on CBS. Brady had been favored in 67 consecutive starts, and it’s just the second time in 12 years that the Patriots have been dogs in the postseason.

These teams met earlier this season on Sunday Night Football, with the host Patriots winning on a last-second field goal. This time around, the high-powered Kansas City offense is favored by three over New England, and the total has been bet down from 57 to 56.5 in the latest Patriots vs. Chiefs odds.

Alright folks, time for championship weekend. I have many thoughts and I’ve waited to weigh in on the AFC Championship Game until as late as possible to gather as much info as I needed. I’m ready to go. Let’s dive in with the game in Kansas City between the Chiefs and New England Patriots.

This game is a rematch of a Week 6 victory in New England that the Patriots won 43-40 on a late field goal. It was a back-and-forth offensive affair, with the Patriots just making more plays than the Chiefs at the end of the game. While it would be easy to assume the game this weekend might mimic that, I doubt it.

Here are four things to watch for Sunday, with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.

Will the Chiefs’ homefield advantage be a factor?
The Patriots are an excellent team at home. They were 9-0 and averaged 30+ points at home this season. Their defense allowed just 17 points a game in their friendly confines. On the road, the Patriots are 3-5 this season, allowing almost seven points more a game than at home. They’ve played sloppy on offense and haven’t been able to score.

However, they beat the one playoff team they faced on the road: the Chicago Bears. I don’t buy this “Patriots are bad on the road in the playoffs” stuff, either. They’ve played two, yes TWO, road games in the playoffs since the 2007 season —both in Denver. That’s hardly a large sample size and with a completely different team outside of coach and quarterback.

The Chiefs are similar to the Patriots. They are outstanding at home, and not so hot on the road, especially on defense. For whatever reason, the Chiefs defense is money in Kansas City. They allow almost half as many points at home and force more turnovers. They thrive on the crowd and their pass rush in Arrowhead.

How do the Patriots stop the Chiefs offense?
In three of the four games between the Patriots and Chiefs since 2014, the Chiefs have scored 40+ points. Two of those games were with Alex Smith under center. With both Smith and Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, the Patriots haven’t had an answer for Tyreek Hill in their last two games. He’s had 20 targets, 14 catches and 275 yards. Beyond that, Kareem Hunt torched them, both on the ground and in the air. He’s off the team, but the option of using the back on Sunday is still there. Last week against the Colts, Damien Williams rushed for 129 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes.

The No. 2-seed Los Angeles Rams have headed to play against the No.1 Saints in New match from Week 8 where the Saints cemented a win of 45-35. The Saints had gotten the Rams in the game earlier, but later the Rams had blown a smack to the Saints. Since this game, Rams have scaled down to 6-2 and Saints to 7-2.

It’s not just the team either, it’s the time for the fans. The fans who have poured their time, energy, and money into supporting this franchise. The fans who’ve lived through the hardest of seasons and suffered the burden of watching other homegrown quarterbacks succeed. It’s about time they get to watch their quarterback do the same while they roar from the stands in Arrowhead Stadium.

Andy Reid’s Chiefs have played the Patriots four times and in those games they scored 41, 20, 42 and 40 points against the Patriots. Most of those games Alex Smith was the quarterback. Patrick Mahomes was only at the helm for a single game and it was his first loss ever as a member of the Chiefs.

Many would tell you, “Yeah, but Mahomes had 350 yards passing and 4 touchdowns in that game.”

You know who doesn’t care about those stats? Mahomes. When he got to Kansas City he had 13-16 record as the starter at Texas Tech. The only priority for Mahomes once he got into the NFL was winning football games. The comeback that he engineered in that Week 6 game against the Patriots, it wasn’t good enough for him because he didn’t get the win.

At the end of the day, Mahomes’ loss to the Patriots will be the biggest motivator coming into this game. Not the stakes or what lies ahead, but the fact that Mahomes wants to win. He wants to be great, and that path to greatness starts with taking out the greatest dynasty in the history of professional football on the way to the Super Bowl.

Nicolas Roesch’s pick: Chiefs win 34-30
Postseason record: 1-0
Twitter: @Nicolas_Roesch
The Chiefs’ defense hasn’t allowed more than 29 points at home in the last two seasons, while their offense has averaged 35.3 points per game this season. I have them allowing 30 in this game because, well, it’s the Patriots in the AFC championship game.

The big question for Kansas City in this game is if it is ready for this big of a stage, especially against a team that has dominated the NFL for the better part of the last two decades. For me it comes down to Andy Reid. You know he desperately wants a Super Bowl title after 20 years as a head coach.

I believe Reid will have his team sharp and focused. This game will be a shootout, but not quite of the magnitude it was in Week 6. I think the K.C. offense makes a couple more big plays than New England and the Chiefs’ defense comes up big when it matters the most.

Robert Rimpson’s pick: Patriots win 33-30

I’m going to keep it real with you, this one is going to be close. There are so many unpredictable variables in this game that it’s hard to pin down which ones will have the greatest effect.
