However, one analyst believes that the New England Patriots are the biggest threat  to Kansas City’s reign in the AFC.

“If you think of the development of those type of players with (Julian) Edelman, a different kind of dynamism in the offense with a dynamic quarterback who’s been to a Super Bowl, who’s been an MVP, who was voted by his peers the best player in the game in the middle of Aaron Rodgers’ and Tom Brady’s and Drew Brees’ prime — Cam was voted best in the game by his peers when he won the MVP — you take all of that and then you have (Bill) Belichick as coach,” Kellerman said Tuesday on ESPN. “You have one loss on the season and it was a great goal-line stand by the Seahawks, who everybody said is a top-three team in the NFL right now. They beat the Patriots by the skin of their teeth.

“So I think, in the end, a Belichick-coached team with developing offensive players and a dynamic quarterback is probably the best shot that anyone’s going to have against the Chiefs in the AFC.”

With New England and Kansas City facing each other this Sunday, this will give the Patriots a chance to show that they can contend with the best of the best in the AFC.
