Kansas City Chiefs vs. New England Patriots Details
Kansas City Chiefs vs. New England Patriots
With the New England Patriots being in the playoffs as consistently as they are, they have built a number of rivalries with teams looking to claim their throne. The Kansas City Chiefs are one of those teams that has gone toe-to-toe with them in the AFC playoffs, and have played New England in a number of important games in the regular season as well. Their first meeting came in 1960, when the then-Boston Patriots defeated the then-Dallas Texans.
As is the case with any rivalry involving the New England Patriots, Tom Brady is always going to be a key player when it comes to games between the Patriots and Chiefs. On the other side of the equation, recent matchups between the two teams have seen the Chiefs rely on Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt as their key offensive weapons, to a strong degree of success against a Patriots team that most squads have a hard time beating.
Overall, the Patriots and Chiefs have played 35 times, with the Chiefs winning the majority of those games, including two Chiefs wins in the last three meetings between the teams.
Historic Chiefs vs. Patriots Games
The lone postseason meeting between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs took place in 2016, with the Patriots claiming a 27-20 home win in the Divisional round. Tom Brady was his usual incredible self in that game, throwing for over 300 yards, with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the contest. His two touchdown passes opened the scoring in each half of the game, with both of which going to tight end Rob Gronkowski, and the Patriots managed to hold on for the victory despite a spirited comeback by the Chiefs in the late stages of the game.
Kansas City got their revenge on the Patriots in their next meeting, in the season-opening game of the 2017 season, where they put up touchdowns in bunches in a 42-27 win on the night the Patriots raised their Super Bowl LII banner. The breakout star of that game was Kareem Hunt, who had nearly 250 total yards and three touchdowns, including two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to put the game out of the reach of the Patriots once and for all.

When Do the Chiefs Play the Patriots?
The Chiefs and Patriots play every few years in the regular season, as they are not division opponents and are therefore not granted an annual game against one another. When the Patriots host a game in this rivalry, they do so at Gillette Stadium, while the Chiefs host their games at Arrowhead Stadium. Both of these stadiums offer some of the best home field advantages in football, with crowd noise well above the league average.
