Patriots' Rob Gronkowski Throws Chiefs Defender With Stiff Arm

Following the New England Patriots' 43-40 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night at Gillette Stadium, Chiefs linebacker Breeland Speaks claimed he didn't sack Brady on a key third-and-goal in the fourth quarter because he was anxious about being hit a rough the passer penalty.

Kevin Durant throws his shoe at Steph Curry after the Redskins beat the Panthers; but nothing compares to the fan throwing a beer in the face of Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill.

With New England holding a 40-33 lead with three minutes remaining in the game, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes hit Hill for a 75-yard game-tying touchdown. "They're going to be pretty tough to stop, so glad we had our last shot and glad we took advantage of it". "They made more plays then we did".

Minnesota Vikings receiver Adam Thielen continued his run of 100-yard games to become just the second player to do so in the first six games of the season.

The Patriots match-up with the Chiefs was seen as a battle of the master against the apprentice with Brady facing Mahomes. But tight end Travis Kelce said he feels like this team has lots of room to grow and has a different mentality than it did this time last season.

Mahomes ended his night passing for 352 yards and four touchdowns, setting a Chiefs' record for five straight 300-yard passing games.

With this being such a high-scoring game, there were a lot of offensive players on the Patriots that had great games. Stephen Gostkowski's game-winning kick, from 28 yards, capped a frenetic 30-point fourth quarter, with the Patriots handing the Chiefs their first loss of the season. "I think we have no problem grinding it out", Brady said. The hesitation to tackle or guard in turn means that the opposition gets terrific field position and consequently more points on the board.

There are some Chiefs fans wishing their defenders had a similar mindset on the Patriots' final drive.

The San Francisco 49ers are the kings of Monday Night Football but they're without star quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and top running back Jerrick McKinnon for the season while eight other starters are struggling with injuries.
