Brady: Chiefs “force you into a lot of bad football”

KANSAS CITY, MO - SEPTEMBER 29:  Tamba Hali #91 of the Kansas City Chiefs knocks the ball loose from Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots for a fumble during the third quarter at Arrowhead Stadium on September 29, 2014 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid and Patriots coach Bill Belichick both downplayed the notion that you could take much from last year’s 41-14 Chiefs victory over New England in the regular season when preparing for this week’s divisional round game, but Tom Brady picked up at least one similarity with this year’s Chiefs team while watching Kansas City roll to a 30-0 win on Saturday.

Brady said that the Chiefs defense forced the Texans into making a lot of mistakes during their win and called it the “mark of a good team.” He pointed out the way a game then “snowballs” into a blowout the way they did for Houston on Saturday and for the Patriots in 2014.

“I think exactly what I just described is how we played them last year,” Brady said on “Dennis & Callahan” on WEEI. “Exactly how they won against Houston is exactly how they beat us. They just force you into a lot of bad football, and they’ve got guys offensively that they can control the clock, they run the ball a lot, they have a very good quarterback who plays very efficiently. That’s what they did to us, that’s kind of a winning formula for them. That’s been a winning formula for a long time.”

The Patriots offense that finished the regular season looked vulnerable to that kind of defensive approach, which makes getting players like wide receiver Julian Edelman and tackle Sebastian Vollmer back into the lineup significant for their chances of getting a better result this time around.

    There, fixed it.

  3. mrkbuilders says: Jan 11, 2016 11:13 AM

    A LOT of comments are talking about losing previous 4 of 6. Next week’s game, we’ll have our best O Lineman(Vollmer; shifting others back to their appropriate spots). We’ll also have our best WR(Edelman, allowing Amendola and others to move down the chart to where they’re more comfortable).

    On defense, we’ll have our best pass rusher back in a healthy Chandler Jones and one of the more underrated LBs in the league in Donta Hightower. The bye was vital for future phenom, Jamie Collins. This kid is a beast but getting over a month long virus in December. The virus was so bad it kept him out for a month.

    To think this is the same team that choose health over wins in December is foolish. Strap in Chiefs, you’re not in Kansas anymore!!

    Big pats fan and if you are talking about how we will blow the Chiefs out you haven’t watched them play. Edelman is the X factor in this game if he can get open and have 8-9 catches that means Brady isn’t getting affected by the pass rush and pats win but if Edelman isn’t up to speed or the o-line struggles it will be tough a great matchup I can’t wait. Go pats

  5. jeydrade says: Jan 11, 2016 11:19 AM

    The Cheifs are playing excellent football right now and NE has wavered a little.

    Everyone wrote off KC when Charles went out, but they have made the most of their opportunities – two great coaches. Both teams down some players, but it should be a good game.

  6. beattention says: Jan 11, 2016 11:21 AM

    Shucks, maybe the Chiefs should stay in KC.

  7. tajuara says: Jan 11, 2016 11:21 AM

    The key matchup will be Chiefs O against Patriots D because Patriots O will be put points on the board, that is a fact.

  8. thebirdofprey says: Jan 11, 2016 11:23 AM

    This is going to be a great game to watch. Brady’s team is getting healthy but that KC defensive line is scary. Poe/Howard inside make it hard to run. 2 elite pass rushers coming the from the outsides and playmakers in the S and CB spot.

    This is the last match up NE wanted. I could see them getting over the Bengals this week, even the Steelers.

    This is not the “the last match up NE wanted”. Their goal is to win the Super Bowl. They will play all comers. They have to win 3 games for it to mean anything. It doesn’t matter who they play, they expect their opponent to be very good.

    I think whoever wins this game will go to superbowl. The chiefs are NEs biggest challenge in the AFC and KC is the Pats biggest challenge in the AFC.

  17. triaxfusion says: Jan 11, 2016 11:51 AM

    Well unfortunately for the Chiefs the patriots are a bigger market with a larger fan base. Despite being a better team at this point in the season they have no chance of winning.

  18. harrisonhits2 says: Jan 11, 2016 11:55 AM

    Chiefs are a great team.

    Pats are a great team.

    As long as neither team has an early breakdown / makes an early big mistake it should be a hard fought and close game.

  21. joetoronto says: Jan 11, 2016 12:00 PM

    The Chiefs are overrated on both sides of the ball, IMO.

    First of all, BB will have a simple answer for that popgun offense that only threatens the flats and 5 yards downfield.

    As for their defense, the secondary blows and looks way better then they are due to pressure. The Pats can stymie the Chiefs pressure and expose that secondary.

    The Pats win without much trouble but if by chance they don’t, I’ll be here to eat crow, unlike some other people around here who conveniently disappear.

  23. vancouversportsbro says: Jan 11, 2016 12:05 PM

    Chiefs don’t have the scoring power to beat the Patriots. Or the coaching staff to prevent the cheating tactics. I picture grease all over the offensive linemen and headsets not working.

  24. piratefreedom says: Jan 11, 2016 12:05 PM

    KC is playing better than NE right now.

    I’ll be cheering for the Pats but I don’t have a lot of confidence they can turn it on after playing so badly and losing so many guys.

    What are the chances the guys like Edleman,Volmer,Hightower,Jones,Mccourty,Chung,Amendola etc are going to be able to play at a high level even if the make it back on the field?

    I’m not confident that any amount of kale smoothies are going to make Brady’s ankle better either.

  25. luckyarmpit says: Jan 11, 2016 12:08 PM

    Chiefs did it once, they can do it again. My two favorite teams are the New York Giants and whoever plays the Patriots.

    Following football long enough to know its a game of matchups just like Brady is talking about here. I remember a few years ago Pats looked really good but a Ravens teams with good pass rushers and Ray Rice in his prime bounced them out of the playoffs. The other possibilities were far more favorable with offensive line on the mend.

  27. Remember when PFT was about football? Now its just a bunch of whiney losers who cry about the Patriots says: Jan 11, 2016 12:10 PM

    Did I watch the same game as everyone else in Houston???

    The Chiefs offense was AWFUL in the first half. Houston was doing everything in their power to give the Chiefs the game and they managed like 6 points (when you subtract the opening kick off return for 7)

    I thought the Patriots had the “popgun offense”? At least that is all I read from the haters.

    Quite frankly, you don’t rattle off 11 wins in a row by being overrated on both sides of the ball, no matter what level the competition.

    New England will probably win, but to assume it is a foregone conclusion is foolish.

    The Chiefs are without a doubt the most complete opponent the Pats will face in the AFC and as a result are the toughest out they could have faced in the divisional round. They were going to have to face each other at some point to get to the SB and at least in the divisional round they are doing it without having had to play any cheap shot teams first. Both teams do it the right way between the lines, not a knee or head hunter between them. Fans of both teams can be confident that if there’s an injury it won’t be as the result of dirty play. Really looking forward to a clean hard fought game between two quality teams.

  30. ebhaynz says: Jan 11, 2016 12:20 PM

    The X factor here really is Andy Reid. Can he rise up to the level of elite coaches or does he fall down to the middlin’ category?

  32. solo681 says: Jan 11, 2016 12:21 PM

    The Chiefs blowout of the Texans was at least a little encouraging in this aspect, Hoyer gave away the game with 4 turnovers and really bad errant throws.

    However, Patriots better play there best game of the season because it will not be easy.
    If BB & coaching staff fail to learn from past mistakes like the Pass Rush of the SB Giants and the Chiefs in 2014 then it will be ‘One & Done’.

  33. chadsmith013 says: Jan 11, 2016 12:22 PM

    so what brady really was saying is “we got to find a way to cheat”

  34. zigthepatsfan says: Jan 11, 2016 12:26 PM

    There wont be much scoring in this one barring turnovers or big mistakes. The Chiefs D is in no way “over rated”, they are going to be a problem. But the opposite is true also and more so if Maclin can’t go. Kelce is legit but the Pats do have the guys that can cover him, plan will be don’t let him beat you(again especially with out Maclin who has to be very doubtful )
    Not to mention as of now looks like the weather could have an impact, 80% chance of rain/snow

    I have to lean towards the Pats being at home but I highly doubt this is an easy win for whoever wins.

  35. vancouversportsbro says: Jan 11, 2016 12:33 PM

    Julie Edelman isn’t a factor, he’s a cheerleader.

  37. TeeHeeLOLatPatsHaters says: Jan 11, 2016 12:37 PM

    Let’s talk about that so called 2-4 “slump”🙂

    Could have easily been 4-2. Maybe even 5-1.

    2 losses were in OT including the last one where they elected to give the Jets the ball. They just went through the motions in week 17. In 3 of those losses they scored 20 or more points.

    Edelman is playing on Saturday and they haven’t lost a game with him this year.
    🙂

  38. jbaxt says: Jan 11, 2016 12:43 PM

    Yes, the Chiefs offense was MIA against the Texans the 1st half but let’s not forget the Texans were the 6th rated scoring defense? So they’re supposed to be tough. I think NE defense is 8th. Not saying KC’s putting up 30 but the TX game was great for KC. It got them some experience and hopefully geared up for a better team.

    I really hope Tamba Hali ruins the Pats plans. Pats are good team and I respect their team but our team will not go quietly. Toss the game last season in the trash. Chiefs won’t be repeating the same coverages nor formations. Andy Reid is too smart to run anything similar. Plus, they will have to deal with West And Spencer Ware..we might not have JMac but we are not one dimensional. Putting eight in a box won’t work. Kelce. Conley, West Ware. This team makes plays.

    I think winner of this game will be K.C., they are a team incidentally built to beat the Patriots.

    People forget the Patriots, for all their vaunted excellence, have Jim Caldwell-level shenanigans on special teams – and K.C. plays lights-out on special teams. Combined with K.C. ball-control/ball-security offensive style, Chiefs will control field position and force Brady starting a lot of drives behind his own 10.

    If Patriots don’t score every time making it a shootout, Patriots will need to rack up a lot of yards just to keep an equitable field position with K.C. – who can grind a roster-brittle outfit like the Patriots down with five and six minute possessions.

    K.C. by a couple field goals.

    Then AFC West game-of-decade in Denver. It will be sweet.

    Maybe he was referring to the direction you have to travel from Houston to Kansas City, possibly passing through Kansas. I don’t think the Chiefs players stayed in a Kansas hotel. They are likely in Missouri at this time.

  45. bullcharger says: Jan 11, 2016 1:02 PM

    To some extent it’s still Tom Brady vs a very good KC defense and Alex Smith vs a pretty good NE defense.

    I’ll take Brady to move the ball eventually against any defense. That’s just what he does. The question is can KC hold him off long enough to keep the Patriots under 20, which is when we know the Patriots lose playoff games. In 6 of 8 playoff losses in the Brady era the Patriots failed to get 20 points and the other losses the Patriots scored 21 and 34 (which is the game they blew against indy in 2006).

    I think the Patriots can slow down Smith, especially if Maclin can’t play or at least cannot be effective.

    I think if the Patriots score 25 or more they win.

  57. peytonmanningshghconnection says: Jan 11, 2016 6:29 PM

    The two best teams in the AFC will be playing each other and the Pats have the advantage of playing at home. The Chiefs are hungry and are playing the best football of any team in the NFL right now. KC has week after week been the most consistent team and they’ve gotten better with each week. The latest reports are that Maclin is playing. I don’t know how much of a factor he will be but if he’s in the game that will screw with Belichick’s game plan of double teaming Kelce. The one thing everyone seems to forget is that no matter who has gone down this season with the Chiefs they always seem to find the next man up to fill in and do an excellent job. My only fear is that after this game if KC wins is that they will be so beat up the fans will be cheated of getting to watch the best team beat Denver. Same goes for the Pats if they win they could be so beat up they won’t put their best team on the field. Denver doesn’t deserve to go to the Super Bowl they are pretenders with the weakest offense in the league plus the Donks have a huge advantage playing in that altitude.

    Miami has had some bad football the last 15 years, not 30 years like the patriots. Miami may have tampered but the best coach in football history did not. Did Shula get disciplined in anyway? No. So how did he cheat? His name is in a lawsuit. Is that considered cheating? No. Did he muddy up a field so BOTH teams played on a muddy field a time or two? Sure but two teams playing on the SAME field how is that cheating. You simply do not know what is and is not cheating. Lean the rule book clown.

    Did he muddy up a field so BOTH teams played on a muddy field a time or two? Sure but two teams playing on the SAME field how is that cheating. You simply do not know what is and is not cheating. Lean the rule book clown. Have fun dreaming about Miko while you play your little board games.

    Hmm…a low scoring team with a good run game and very good run defense but below average passing attack floods the field when facing a high powered passing attack. IN A CHAMPIONSHIP GAME NO LESS.
    If there was no advantage why did he do it?
    And it was against the rules but Shula was above the rules

    I was inclined to believe that most Pats fans knew their football but to the rest of their delusional idiots fans that are spouting that the they will beat the Chiefs by 2 touchdowns…… reality check when is the last time the Pats beat ANYONE by 2 touchdowns? Last I checked the Pats had LOST 3 out of their last 4 games. Face it the Chiefs are the best team the Pats have faced all season. The game will more than likely be decided by a field goal.

    Miami has had some bad football the last 15 years, not 30 years like the patriots. Miami may have tampered but the best coach in football history did not.

    D*n Sh*la was aware that he was under contract with the Colts.

    Patriots History:
    76 to 88 they were 113 – 83 including a Super Bowl appearence
    94 to 99 they were 54 – 34 including a Super Bowl appearance

    The Dolphins last Super Bowl was 31 years ago.
    Their last AFCCG was 23 years ago.

    Patriots are a great franchise.
    The Dolphins had 3 years of *** with a cheater coach 42 years ago.

    “Strap in Chiefs, you’re not in Kansas anymore!!”

    Clever – except that the Chiefs play in Missouri.

    I am curious – Why does Missouri have a city named after another state? I mean, you don’t see other states do that.

    So, you are saying the Fish have only been bad for 15 years in a row. That’s quite the accomplishment, smh.

    If you look at the last 30 years, there isn’t any comparison between the 2 teams. New England has 8 Super Bowl appearances to none for Miami.

    “I am curious – Why does Missouri have a city named after another state? I mean, you don’t see other states do that.”

    Kansas City was founded before the state of Kansas existed. The city was named after the Kansas River. Originally the city was just called Kansas – the City was added on with statehood of Kansas.

    Miami has had some bad football the last 15 years, not 30 years like the patriots. Miami may have tampered but the best coach in football history did not. Did Shula get disciplined in anyway? No. So how did he cheat? His name is in a lawsuit. Is that considered cheating? No. Did he muddy up a field so BOTH teams played on a muddy field a time or two? Sure but two teams playing on the SAME field how is that cheating. You simply do not know what is and is not cheating. Lean the rule book clown.

    It was the original 30 year comment that made me think you were talking about the Fins. Since that’s how long it’s been since they won a conference championship and over 40 since they won a SB. Heck they haven’t won a playoff game in 15, the Pats at their worst never went that long between playoff wins. If you believe ordering the cover off the field wasn’t cheating to gain a competitive advantage then perhaps I am not the one that needs to “lean” something.

    It’s sad you had to resort to name calling. Trolls should have thicker skins
