This year’s AFC Championship game will play between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs. The two teams will go head-to-head this Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
The kickoff is scheduled for 5:40 pm. We are only a few days away from this game and we are very excited about it. Another person who is excited is Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. When talking to reporters, he said:
“I don’t think about it too much, what people might say or think. I know we’re playing against a very good football team. They’re the first seed for a reason. They’ve had a great season and we’re going to have to go into a really tough environment and play our best football, so it’s a great opportunity for us and hopefully we can take advantage of it.”
This game will be a road game for the Patriots, who have not been the best at road games this season. Because of this, people are saying the Patriots will have a tough time defeating the Chiefs. However, Brady believes in his team. He said:
“I just look at those games individually and I know why we haven’t won those games individually. I don’t think it’s a broad, sweeping thing. It was a little bit in each game. I think the point of that is this is not the week to have less than our best. It’s a tough game, it’s a tough challenge. It’s tough to beat the number one seed on the road. That’s the reality, just like we’re tough to beat at home when we’re the number one seed. It takes a lot, it takes a lot of good football. It takes a great complementary game. All three phases have to be on point. We’re going against a team that scores a lot of points. They lead the league in sacks, strips-sacks. It’s a good group and I think everybody at every position has to play well. That’s what championship games are all about. These aren’t just handed to you on a silver platter and, “Here you go. Here’s your trip to the Super Bowl.” You’ve got to go fight them out. We’ve been in a lot of games that come right down to the end.”
Make sure to tune in and watch the game!
