Knile Davis fumble sets up Gronk’s second touchdown

FOXBORO, MA - JANUARY 16:  Rob Gronkowski #87 of the New England Patriots spikes the ball after a touchdown catch in the first quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs during the AFC Divisional Playoff Game at Gillette Stadium on January 16, 2016 in Foxboro, Massachusetts.

The Patriots are pouring it on.

Chiefs running back Knile Davis fumbled early in the third quarter, handing the ball to the Patriots and setting up a surgical drive in which Tom Brady marched the team down the field, ending with a touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski.

It was Gronk’s second touchdown catch of the game and the eighth postseason touchdown catch of his career, the most postseason touchdowns for any tight end in NFL history.

It also may have been the last nail in the Chiefs’ coffin. Although there’s still plenty of time left in the third quarter, the Patriots’ 21-6 lead is starting to feel insurmountable. The Chiefs just don’t seem to have an answer for Brady and Gronk.

    The Pats are going through that Chiefs defense like a hot knife through butter. Brady is the man, like it or not.

    The Chiefs are stuck with a popgun offense and a big deficit, not good. Alex Smith and his 3 yards per attempt aren’t going to cut it.

    Andy Reid isn’t much better than Marvin Lewis, he tightens right up in the playoffs and chokes just like his teams do.

    When all is said and done Gronk may be the best that his position too.

  5. steeltroll says: Jan 16, 2016 6:44 PM

    Gronk even looks like Ivan Drago.

    Even the NFL playoffs are quickly becoming monotonous, mundane and extremely boring…. Same teams every year just swapping turns with the Super Bowl… GREAT BIG YAWN! BORING!!!

    Maybe someone should beat those teams, then.

    That KC defense doesn’t look so hot when their front isn’t getting instant pressure, they’re extremely overrated.

  11. aljack88 says: Jan 16, 2016 6:54 PM

    geeesh……. where’s the “musta done something cheap, cheat….” comments?
    Come on trolls, you’re slacking!

  12. bleck5 says: Jan 16, 2016 6:58 PM

    And the Chiefs are the biggest threat to the Pats in the AFC too. Id say a trip to Santa Clara is all but ready to be booked after this. But it is still the NFL playoffs so anything can happen.

  13. zigthepatsfan says: Jan 16, 2016 7:03 PM

    far from over. Pats D needs to tighten up I know that.

  14. dexx57 says: Jan 16, 2016 7:04 PM

    At least our Patriots coaches don’t trip and pull hair

    Andy Reid is a loser

    The Kansas City Chiefs are losers.

    That vaunted Chiefs offense is really tearing things up.I hope the Eagles keep Pat Shurmur as offensive coordinator or they’re in trouble.

  18. bobsnygiants says: Jan 16, 2016 7:10 PM

    officials stink

  19. flash1287 says: Jan 16, 2016 7:10 PM

    And the CRYBABIES slowly start to disappear….

  20. cinzano08 says: Jan 16, 2016 7:11 PM

    Edelman mugged in the end zone, where’s the flag? Refs and NFL are trying to beat the pats and still can’t.

  21. trainwrecksryan says: Jan 16, 2016 7:12 PM

    Another glorified bye week for the Pats.

  22. bobsnygiants says: Jan 16, 2016 7:12 PM

    should of been a penalty, defensive back against Ell

  23. nepatriot1 says: Jan 16, 2016 7:12 PM

    The officials are doing everything humanly possible to keep the Chiefs in this game.
    Clear interference on Peters……no call

    When New England wins they cheat, they lose they suck. Great logic from fans of terrible teams.

    I was hoping the Chiefs would beat the cheater Pats. But Andy Reid has had a vanilla offense his ENTIRE coaching career. Alex Smith is a bottom 15 QB. Those are facts man. Maybe the losers can stop dropping catches.

    ……Name 15 QBs better than Alex Smith. You can’t, and I’m not an Alex Smith nor Chiefs fan. Stay seated at the kids table, adults are talking.

  31. nathanp2013 says: Jan 16, 2016 7:32 PM

    Well at least the Chiefs got their first playoff win in 25 years… So their slightly less inept than the Lions over the past 50 years.

  32. ReligionIsForIdiots says: Jan 16, 2016 7:33 PM

    Paid off refs, what a joke.

  33. packmanfan says: Jan 16, 2016 7:37 PM

    Pathetic that they have to resort to cheating to win.

  34. gofor2with3pointlead says: Jan 16, 2016 7:38 PM

    Nothing says class like gloating when you’re ahead by two scores. But everyone knows NE fans have never been accused of having any class.

  35. worldizending says: Jan 16, 2016 7:40 PM

    KC is holding and mugging the Patriot’s pass rushers….and they call nothing.

  36. aljack88 says: Jan 16, 2016 7:40 PM

    Andy Reid still hasn’t got time management down.

  37. burgboy82 says: Jan 16, 2016 7:41 PM

    Boston fans are rapidly approaching Philly fans in terms of obnoxiousnous.

  38. hivelocityimpactsplatter says: Jan 16, 2016 7:41 PM

    Wasting a lot of time, will anyone be surprised when Andy Reid says they had headset trouble?

  39. goattoday says: Jan 16, 2016 7:42 PM

    KC defense is way overrated!

  40. ericdre says: Jan 16, 2016 7:43 PM

    15 QBs better than Alex Smith… 1. Tom Brady 2. Andy Dalton 3. Joe Flacco 4. Big Ben 5. Andrew Luck 6. Philip Rivers 7. Peyton Manning 8. Eli Manning 9. Tony Romo 10. Aaron Rodgers 11. Jay Cutler 12. Cam Newton 13. Matt Ryan 14. Russell Wilson 15. Carson Palmer… Just off the top of my head. I can argue that Bortles, Winston, Bridgewater, Stafford, Tannehill are all better or the same caliber as Alex Smith. Smith has had a good year and the Chiefs have been good but they are just outclassed today and to think Alex is a top 15 QB is just ridiculous. And I’m not a Pats fan.

    That was easy to list. See, Alex smith is bottom 15

  43. Exiled1 says: Jan 16, 2016 7:50 PM

    Every time I turn around a look at an offensive drive by KC all I see is Alex Smith holding back an otherwise good team. It’s time to relegate Smith to a Backup QB and find a more capable successor. A Plain Jane offense and a very limited QB is not a recipe for success against the Patriots.

  44. ericdre says: Jan 16, 2016 7:50 PM

    @key2heat Agreed. This was just responding to @jonevan511 earlier. I think you are more hard pressed to list 15 QBs worse than Alex Smith.

  45. jchipwood says: Jan 16, 2016 7:50 PM

    A lot of opiates being bought for parties right now in Massachusetts.

    ________________________________

    You are very right sir. I am not a chiefs hater but that has to be the most anemic offense in the NFL. Alex Smith has been a dink and dunker his entire career. I really wanted the Chiefs to win. Within 5 minutes of the 1st quarter is was reminded they peak at 20 point per game.

    Boston is just a small portion of New England. The rest of us outside of Boston thank you for your compliment.

    Just read this exact post on another Patriots article. Do you think you’ve come up with something clever, then cut and paste to all Pat’s articles? I think it’s past your bedtime kiddo.
