Brady, Patriots top Mahomes, Chiefs for wild win

The Patriots have allowed 40-plus points in a regular season game just three times in the last five seasons - all to the Chiefs.

The New England Patriots issued a statement with the update on Monday.

Video of the fan throwing beer into the face of Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill went viral after it was captured on the telecast Sunday night.

What a game. The New England Patriots walked away victorious in what may go down as the game of the National Football League season. They are 6-1 with Mahomes as their starting quarterback, counting the final regular-season game against the Denver Broncos a year ago.

However, the Chiefs score 31 points in the second half and America had a great shootout to watch. That set up the most clutch offensive play of the game, a 39-yard dime from Brady to Rob Gronkowski that put the Patriots in finish-it-off mode.

Tyreek Hill shone for the Chiefs with three touchdowns while quarterback Patrick Mahomes was intercepted twice. White knew he'd have to beat single tacklers going into the game, and simply elevated himself to make that happen in crunch time.

Gostkowski was a ideal 5-for-5 on field-goal attempts, his last coming as time expired.

The score was Hill's third touchdown of the game and when he got to the end zone, he definitely didn't get a warm welcome.

Mahomes threw two interceptions in the first half, but was unflappable down the stretch.

Indeed, the Patriots finished the game with just one punt. As long as Mahomes is making plays like this one, Chiefs fans don't need to worry about their guy in the long run.

It looked like it was going to be a blowout, but New England wanted to test Patriots fans faith. It is one thing to see his speed on film - another to witness it on the field. Year-after-year, Brady has games like this. It is unfortunate that the team that ended up with the ball won.

The 41-year-old did it again on Sunday night.

Earlier in the half, Hill had scored on a 14-yard reception where he started on the left side and glided under Mahomes lob near the right corner.

Players acknowledged afterwards that this game was fun - nearly like sandlot football.

Brady: "Yeah, he made some big ones".

"We just continued to trust our process and go about our business the only way we know how", nine-time captain Matthew Slater said. The sixth safety was playing against the Tom Brady led offense. "There's still plays out there and we're still getting familiar with one another". And, we talked about competing for 60 minutes, and that's what it took.

"I'm glad we had our last shot and glad we took advantage of it".
