With the cold weather expected in Kansas City and with the loud noise of Arrowhead Stadium, Brady and the Patriots are going to have to be just as balanced on offense.

We'll see if the Patriots continue to use Jones on Hill, Gilmore on Watkins and Jackson on Kelce moving forward.

In that game, the KC Chiefs number one wideout hauled in seven catches for 142 yards and a whopping three touchdowns.

In fact, recent snowfall in the area prompted the Chiefs' grounds crew to re-sod the field this week - something they weren't expecting to do, Travis Hogan, the team's head groundskeeper, wrote in a Twitter message. And with temps on the rise, the Patriots-Chiefs over/under followed.

Prior to Brady's miscue, in which he was looking for tight end Rob Gronkowski, the last time it happened was when Seattle Seahawks Russell Wilson threw an interception against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX. The New Orleans Saints pulled in 11.9 percent of the vote, the Kansas City Chiefs had 9.9 percent and the Los Angeles Rams came in at 8.8 percent. With Brady dropping dimes left and right, the Patriots finished the first half with as many touchdowns (five) as the Chargers (five) had first downs. They're a good team.

Sunday's meeting with the Kansas City Chiefs will be the eighth straight AFC championship for the Patriots, and ahead of that contest, Brady wanted to help get the fans excited for the occasion.
