The GIST: We can’t believe it’s October already. Soak in our Patriots preview before you admire the Harvest Moon tonight.

Who’s playing?: Our Pats face a big test against defending Super Bowl champions, Kansas City Chiefs, on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET. Kansas City is undefeated so far, most recently taking a decisive win over the Baltimore Ravens earlier this week. Look out.

So you’re saying there’s not much of a chance?: No, not quite! The Pats go into Sunday’s game as the underdog (so weird), but could still rain on Kansas City’s parade. But to have a chance, Pats quarterback (QB) Cam Newton needs to bounce back from last week’s so-so game, while cornerback Stephon Gilmore and the Pats’ defense have to lock down Kansas City’s speedy offensive threats.

  • And of course, pressure must be laid on none other than reigning Super Bowl MVP and soon-to-be dad, QB Patrick Mahomes. Even Pats’ head coach Bill Belichick is impressed by Mahomes. Alright, Dolla Dolla Bill.

Anything else?: Yes, actually. Prep for Sunday football with Saturday football of the soccer variety: the Revolution take on Nashville SC (SC stands for Soccer Club) at 7:30 p.m. ET. Get your footy fix!
