well kids- 

our patriots beat the kansas city chiefs, and they looked pretty good doing it. yes, they blew a big halftime lead, and yes, there's room for improvement, but 4-2 looks a lot better than 3-3 heading into chicago. 

our fearless quarterback didn't have one single interception in this game, but he made up for it with a stupid and totally preventable fumble that made this one a little closer than it needed to be. he made up for that with another rushing touchdown, though, so it all kind of evens out. he wound up 24 of 35 for 340 yards and one passing td in addition to the rush. next game, let's work on our focus, tommy.

i was thinking about giving this totw to dont'a hightower - who was running around like a bat out of hell and pulled down (and nearly ran back) an interception, but i'm loathe to award the totw to a defense that allowed 40 points even if mahomes is kind of awesome. instead, i'm giving this one to stephen gostkowski. he apparently kicked five field goals in this game, and i had to check three different box scores to be sure that was right because i only remember two of them. that means the other three must have been fairly low stress (though there was a 48- and a 50-yarder in addition the game winner...), and lowering my stress in the midst of this shootout is definitely totw-worthy. way to make it look easy, stephen! 

we're off to chicago this weekend, and that kid in chicago might be even scarier than that kid in kansas city. think your happy patriots extra hard this week, and let's all hope that our fearless qb keeps showing the kids how it's done.

have a great week, and go pats.

love dav
