Patriots close AFC championship week with ideal attendance at practice

Now, it seems Kansas City Mayor Sly James - no stranger to the friendly poilitican's prop bet, between the recent championship runs for the Kansas City Royals and Sporting KC - is having trouble getting a return volley from Boston Mayor Marty Walsh ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship Game between the Patriots and Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. As USA Today's Andy Nesbitt put it on Thursday, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady "has been to what feels like 90 Super Bowls".

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who at 23 could become the youngest quarterback to win an National Football League championship, plans no special protection from the cold, just the usual handwarmer he wears around his waist in such weather. When the teams played each other this season in Week 6, Gronkowski went off for 97 receiving yards with Berry out of the lineup and the Patriots won on a 28-yard field goal as time expired.

No one knows how to play the injury report quite like Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. The Chiefs allowed 5.0 yards per carry against opposing offenses this year, second-worst in the league.

Red Bridge is betting on the Chiefs and hoping Potter Road will look more like Chiefs Kingdom next week. "I see him out there looking like Eric Berry". The Saints? Sean Payton and Drew Brees have only gotten to the Super Bowl once, but they did win it 2009.
