Scott Shapiro and James Scully come together to offer a tight run down of the 2019 AFC Championship game featuring the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs. This is the first time in eons where the Patriots are underdogs, and the narrative of late has been around the frigid, arctic blast that is supposed to roll through Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. Who’s got the advantage?
The New England Patriots have been doubted before, including last week where many thought the Chargers had a legitimate chance in the divisional round. So much for that. Kansas City also exploited the Indianapolis Colts while using their home field advantage. Scully dives deep in to which team has the psychological edge in the 2019 AFC Championship. Is it the the experience of Brady, or the MVP caliber pedigree of Patrick Mahomes?
