There's a good chance that's the way Thursday's season opener will unfold-with Kansas City able to hang around with New England for much of the way, but not good enough to pull out the victory. Expectations are not incredibly high this season, their first since leaving San Diego, with the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs considered favourites in the AFC West and the Chargers widely viewed as the divisions' weakest outfit.
Defending Super Bowl champion New England is 11-0 straight-up in its last 11 conference games and is also 8-0 against the spread in its last eight games, according to the OddsShark NFL Database. Brandin Cooks is just entering his prime and Rob Gronkowski is in his prime.
As far as actually significant things we learned, here's the main one: It's impressive how these documentaries practically double as highlight reels for Patriots assistant coaches.
As for the actual game, the Patriots are well aware of Kansas City's ability to force turnovers and protecting the ball will be paramount on Thursday. Usually, this takes more than a season to get any proper results, and the Jets and Browns are most analyst's favorites to battle for the top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Tom Brady's insatiable work ethic has allowed him to overcome almost every obstacle thrown his way but now the NFL's greatest quarterback faces what could prove to be his toughest test yet. Putting the line at 12.5 is insane high, even for a team that went 14-2 last season.

"He was throwing the ball very quickly, " Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said. Several months later in a post-Super Bowl winning glow, Julian Edelman criticized Dilfer for jumping to such a sweeping conclusion. He is taking the roster spot of Shea McClellin, who was placed on injured reserve but is a candidate to return during the season.
Neither Valentine nor Patriots offensive tackle Cameron Fleming practiced Monday, while tight end Travis Kelce was among those limited for the Chiefs.
