Patriots, Chiefs Remain Unbeaten In Poor Showings

Jonathan Grant | September 30th, 2019

It’s long been said that one of the keys to being a championship winning team is knowing how to win a game when you are not at your best. On Sunday, that’s exactly what both the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs did on the road to improve to 4-0 on the season.

Pats Pulpit

The Patriots got a 16-10 win in Buffalo over the previously undefeated Bills, but it was far from pretty. In fact, they had nearly seen a 13-0 lead erased as the Bills came back from the brink. Josh Allen was woeful under center going 13-28 with three interceptions before being forced to leave due to injury. His replacement Matt Barkley, however, still had a chance to lead them to the win with under two minutes to go. That came up short, though, as Jamie Collins rushed his pass and caused their fourth INT of the game to seal it. The Chiefs also played a wild game in Detroit, but in the end they outlasted the Lions to win 34-30. Pat Mahomes was not himself, failing to throw for a touchdown all day, but he still had 315 yards over the air to help them win it. Darrel Williams, their running back, was the hero with two fourth quarter TD runs, including one with 20 seconds left that saw them through as eventual winners. Along with the idle San Francisco 49ers, the pair are the only undefeated teams left at the moment in the NFL after almost four complete weeks of action.
