The New England Patriots held on to beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday in the AFC Division Playoff game at Gillette Stadium.
The final score: 27-20.
Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith completed 29 of 50 passes, but Patriots quarterback Tom Brady — and his team — were better.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said the Pats have the track record.
"You’re playing the reigning Super Bowl champs," said Reid. "They got healthy and had everybody out there. (When) you get to this level, that’s the way you need to roll."
The Chiefs never led in the game.
