In a game that was delayed and with the Patriots traveling the day of the game, it had a very distinct Thursday Night feel and both teams didn't seem all that thrilled to be there.
Regardless, the Patriots' defense, offensive line and running backs played well enough to know off the Chiefs, but the Patriots couldn't get anything out of their QBs without Cam Newton as Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham combined to complete 54 percent of their passes and post a 43.8 rating.
It's too bad. The Patriots' defense clearly frustrated the Chiefs' offense, which only converted 4 of 11 third downs
Patriots fall to 2-2 and the Chiefs improve to 4-0.
