The Chiefs had a game that just about everyone predicted. Tyler Palko started in place of Matt Cassel and then threw three interceptions in the game. He did complete 25-of-38 passes for 236 yards, which looks somewhat decent compared to Tom Brady's game. While Brady wasn't his usual self, he did complete 15-of-27 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns passes.
The Chiefs had kept the game close through the first quarter, as the team had a 3-0 lead at the end of it. Ryan Succop kicked a field goal with 90 seconds left in the quarter. But it was a steady advance for the Patriots after that.
The Broncos can put more distance behind them by defeating the Chargers this Sunday. The Chiefs have another tough matchup when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. The Raiders will have a tough game against a Bears team that is on a five-game winning streak.
