Without Brady, the Patriots managed to beat the Chiefs 17-10 for their NFL record 20th consecutive regular season victory. Their last two losses were in the Super Bowl against the Giants and the 2007 AFC Championship against the Colts.
Matt Cassell stepped in to go 13-18 for 152 yards and one touchdown. He was sacked twice, but did not thrown an interception or lose a fumble.
Patriots fans everywhere should still be panicking. Tom Brady left the game with an undisclosed left leg injury. Brady was clutching his left knee in agony after the low hit.
Brady’s return to the game was announced as “questionable,” but he did not return.
