The Monday Night Football predictions continue to roll in heading into the upcoming NFL weekend slate of games, and the Kansas City Chiefs have a hard time finding a single person (or even simulation) to believe they have a chance to beat the New England Patriots. Even a video game simulation — Madden ’12 football in this instance — has a hard time believing it will even be close.
In ESPN’s weekly Madden simulation series, the Patriots are predicted to win 35-10. When analyzing the sims, Jon Robinson writes, “The Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski connection continues to pay huge dividends inside the red zone for New England as Brady hits his tight end for two first half touchdown passes in the Pats 35-10 dismantling of the Chiefs. Brady finished the game with four touchdowns, while Gronkowski added nine catches for 120 yards as the Kansas City D was out there playing checkers while the Pats were playing chess.”
