Kansas City Vs. New England Score: Chiefs Grab Early 3-0 Lead After One Quarter Of Play

Kansas City is off to a good start in its Monday night match up with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The Chiefs have done a good job keeping Brady and the New England offense on the sidelines while the Patriots' suspect defense has been unable to get off the field in the early going. 

The Chiefs broke through with a nine play, 45 yard scoring drive that resulted in a 26 yard Ryan Succop field goal. Kansas City had the ball first and goal from the New England five yard line before a penalty and a failed quarterback draw unraveled the drive. 

The Chiefs followed that score with a surprise on-side kick attempt that resulted in an illegal touching penalty that set up Tom Brady and company with good field position at the end of the quarter. 

Tyler Palko is off to an accurate start in his first start for the Chiefs going 5-6 for 39 yards. Thomas Jones has had an impact in the rushing department gaining 32 yards on just three carries including a 26 yard run that set the Chiefs up at the five yard line on their scoring drive. 

The Chiefs' defense has done a good job in the early going limiting Brady to just a 2-7 start and 19 yards. BenJarvis Green-Ellis has five carries for 14 yards in the first quarter.
