Best Win

Patriots 13-41 Chiefs

This is a difficult one, because, in terms of the play style, I’d take another Chiefs-Seahawks game any day. But, you really just can’t beat a Monday Night Football blowout over the #1 seed in the AFC while simultaneously breaking the crowd noise record by a wide margin.

If you haven’t already watched Red Tribe Cinema’s Gladiator-inspired recap of it, do so now (in fact, watch their great videos of the Bills and Seahawks games too).

I personally was on vacation in Paris when this game happened and couldn’t convince anyone in my family to watch it with me (traitors all!). They were convinced it would be a blowout in the opposite direction, but I had faith, setting an alarm to watch it at the ungodly hours of Tuesday morning Western Europe time.

It had all the hallmarks of a great Chiefs game: extremely efficient offense, seemingly effortless heroics by RB Jamaal Charles and absolutely dominant defense. Watching those two interceptions by Patriots QB Tom Brady makes you wonder how this season could have been different with just slightly better hands by Chiefs DB’s in later games.
