Team New England Patriots seem to be struggling without their crucial player Cam Newton at the Monday night match. Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman from Chiefs took advantage of their defence against the Patriots who seemingly were weak throughout the game. At the end of the match, the score was 26-10 as the New England lost the game to the Chiefs. The game had previously been postponed as a few team members tested positive with COVID-19.
The Chiefs Went Against Their Usual Strategy To Win The Game
Tyranna Mathieu returned to the game a little late. Meanwhile, Patrick Mahomes added 236 yards to his record with two touchdown passes. Well, his performance was a bit shaky about his previous performances. But eventually, the Chiefs overcame that. And to everyone’s surprise, they started slow and made their way up to the 13th game for the Week 10 of the last season.
The match between the Patriots and the Super was postponed from Sunday. This news came after New England confirmed that Newton had tested positive for the Coronavirus. Then on Saturday, Chiefs also revealed that QB Jordan Ta’amu also tested positive for COVID-19. This forced NFL to postpone the match as well. In light of the current situation, more tests were conducted. The results for all was negative.
Some believe that the Patriots might have wanted the game to be delayed a bit longer so they would have gotten Newton back to the team. However, there is no confirmation regarding this from the team.
Patriots Seem To Be Out Of Form In This Season
Brian Hoyer from the New England Patriots lost a total of 11 straight starts and that too from three different teams for 15 of 24 for 130 years. He even passed through an interception before he was ultimately benched. Well, Hoyer wasn’t the only one responsible for the downfall of the Patriots. Jarrett Stidham also led them close to 13-10 touchdowns because he threw two interceptions. And one of them included the one thrown to Mathieu which further led the Chiefs to go for fourth straight 4-0.
Atlanta Falcons Also Got Beat By The Chiefs
The Chiefs have proven themselves to be unbeatable in this season. In Monday’s game, the Chief played the match against the Green Bay Packers after they defeated Atlanta Falcons by 30-16. Aaron Rodgers from Green Bay Packers continued to put his best foot forward throughout the season and threw four touchdowns. However, three of them were caught by Robert Tonyan.
Meanwhile, the Falcons continued to lose miserably this season. After they blew up the big leads in their game against Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys, Atlanta went down another road and are currently at the score of 0-4.
