    2016 Divisional Round.

    The AFC Divisional Round. KC at home. The last time they won in Foxboro was 1990. The last time they played us was the 41-14 loss last season.

    If they win, Alex Smith is one game from playing a Super Bowl in San Francisco's stadium. The irony of that is very amusing to me.

    If we win, we become just the second team in the Super Bowl Era to go to 5 Conference Championship games in a row.

    Notable inactives for the us are Tre Jackson and Tavon Wilson.

    Notable inactives for KC are, well, no one. None of the names of thier 7 jumped out at me, which is my standard.

    So, that means Jules and Danny are back for us, and Maclin and Houston are playing for them.

    Weather in Foxboro is chilly, no precip, no real wind.

    Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts have the call, and Craig Wrolstad is the ref.

    Go Pats!!!

    2nd and 10: Brady to Jules, incomplete.
    3rd and 10: Brady to Jules, 11! KC came with heavy pressure.
    1st and 10: Brady to Jules, 13.
    1st and 10: Brady to Danny, 16.
    1st and 10: Brady to LaFell, incomplete. Smith with good coverage.
    2nd and 10: Brady to LaFell. Brady never should have thrown it. KC read the play perfectly. Loss of 3.
    3rd and 13: Brady escapes pressure, finds Gronk! 32 yards!

    2nd and 10: Brady to Gronk, 3. Berry with a great tackle.
    3rd and 6: Brady to Gronk, 8, TD!

    The offense is healthy and we looked like us!

    Pats 7-0. 10:23 left in the first.

    The only players in NFL History with more TD catches in thier first six years than Gronk are Jerry RIce and Randy Moss. That's impressive.

    4th and 6: 34 yard FG is good.

    7-3 Pats, 1:52 left.

    The bad news is that they had a very long drive. The good news is that they used 2 timeouts and only got 3.

    Pats Possession 2. We start at the 20.
    1st and 10: Brady to Jules, 3
    2nd and 7: Brady to Danny, low, incomplete.

    There were no penalties in the first quarter.

    1st and 10: West for 10.
    1st and 10: Smith to Conley, 5
    2nd and 5: West for 3.
    3rd and 2: West for 3.
    1st and 10: Davis for 3.
    2nd and 7: Smith pressured by Branch, throw away.
    3rd and 7: Smith to Kelce, incomplete. Hands to the face on Stephenson is declined. They punt with 11:36 left in the half.

    Pats Possession 3. We start at the 10. Stork is out with an ankle, Andrews in at center.
    1st and 10: Brady to Jules, drop.
    2nd and 10: Brady to Jackson, 2.
    3rd and 8: Brady to White, incomplete.

    We need to start running the ball.

    KC Possession 3. They start at the Pats 36 with 10:35 left.
    1st and 10: Smith to Kelce. Butler drops him for a loss of 2.
    2nd and 12: Smith to Maclin, well overthrown.
    3rd and 12: Smith to Kelce, 1.
    They punt.

    Great defense!

    Pats Possession 4. We start at the 2 after Danny called, correctly, for helmet to helmet. 8:58 left.
    1st and 10: Brady finds Jules for 12.
    1st and 10: False Start, Jojo.

    1st and 10: Jackson for 8.
    2nd and 2: Jackson for 4.
    1st and goal: Brady to Bolden, bad throw, loss of 3. Parker with the play.
    2nd and goal: Brady runs for 7 and is ruled out at the pylon. BB challenges. I would not have. I would let Brady or Jackson take it in from an inch out.

    On review, the play stands. We lose 1 challenge and 1 timeout. I think that is correct.

    3rd and goal, inside the 1: Brady sneaks it it. TD!

    14-3 Pats. 3:23 left in the half.

    What a swing! They punted after starting at our 36 and we go 98 yards for a touchdown. That's huge.

    KC Possession 4. Initially, there was a touchback. We were called for offsides on the kickoff. On the rekick, they start at the 33. It was a good call to make us rekick.
    1st and 10: West with an impressive 18 yard run.
    1st and 10: Smith deep to Hudson, overthrown.
    2nd and 10: West for 3.

    We reach the two minute warning.

    3rd and 7: Smith to Avant, 26. Good throw.
    1st and 10: Davis for 3.
    2nd and 7: Smith to Kelce, 5. KC takes it's last time out. :40 left.
    3rd and 2: Smith keeps, 3 yards.
    1st and goal: Spike.
    2nd and goal: Smith to Kelce, way too high.
    3rd and goal: Delay of game. Nio run off since the clock was not running.
    3rd and goal: We call timeout, for some reason, with them having just 2 seconds on the play clock on the next play.
    3rd and goal: Smith overthrows Conley, incomplete.
    4th and goal: 32 yard FG is good.

    14-6 Pats. :12 left.

    I will take 7s for us and 3s for the them.

    Pats Possession 5. We start at the 20, and take a knee.

    Overall, while not a perfect half, it was a solid one. We're very unbalanced, but it's working, and we're holding them out of the endzone.

    15 more minutes. Each team has all three timeouts. We have one challenge, KC has two.

    1st and 10: Brady to Jojo. Almost intercepted by Peters.
    2nd and 10: Brady to Martin, missed him by about a step. It would have been a touchdown.
    3rd and 10: Brady one hops it to Martin. Not good, but we are in FG range.
    40 yard FG is good.

    24-13 Pats. 14:46 left.

    Conley is now the kick returner for KC. It also looks like Maclin is done for the day.

    Mayo is the locker room, being evaluated for a shoulder injury.

    KC Possession 7. They start at the 20.
    1st and 10: West for 1.
    2nd and 9: Smith to Conley, loss of a yard.
    3rd and 10: Finally a sack! Chandler!!!
    4th and 13: Delay, KC.

    Pats Possession 8. We start at the KC 32! Danny with a great returrn! 12:26 left.
    1st and 10: Brady to Martin for 15.
    1st and 10: Jackson for 2.
    2nd and 8: Brady to Gronk for 2.
    3rd and 6: Brady pump fake, misses Jules. Peters with good coverage. Fans wanted a flag, I think it's a good no call. Fouts also thinks there should have been an illegal contact call.
    4th and 6: 32 yard FG is good. 27-13. 10:20 left.

    KC Possession 8. They start at the 20.
    1st and 10: Smith check downs to West. 9 yards.
    2nd and 1: Smith to Kelce, no gain. Nice pressure.
    3rd and 1: Smith to Wilson, 8.
    1st and 10: Smith to Wilson, 11.
    1st and 10: West dropped by Brown, no gain.
    2nd and 10: Smith to Wilson, incomplete. Hightower tipped the ball.
    3rd and 10: Smith to Conley. He was legally nailed (watch how Devon does it, Burfict!), incomplete. Conley hurt on the play. BB challenges, arguing that it was a catch and fumble, clearly recovered by the Pats.

    I do not think it was a fumble.

    After review, the ruling on the field is confirmed. We are out of challenges, and are down to two timeouts.

    4th and 10: Smith escapes Nink, throws deep to Wilson. Harmon with the pick!!! However, he went out of bounds on the catch. Overturned on review.

    Pats Possession 9. We start at the KC 48 with 7:28 left. IMO, it's time to run Jackson.
    1st and 10: Brady to Jules, 6.
    2nd and 4: Brady throw away.
    3rd and 4: Brady to Gronk, incomplete.

    I would have run that possession. Isn't that what a power back is for? To grind out the 4th when you are winning?

    KC Possession 9. They start at the 20 with 6:29 left. Conley is back in the game.
    1st and 10: Smith scrambles for 2.
    2nd and 8: Smith to Wilson. Butler with the pass knockdown.
    3rd and 8: Smith to Conely, 17.
    1st and 10: Smith deep to Wilson, overthrow.
    2nd and 10: Smith to Conley, 2.
    3rd and 8: Smith, throw away.
    4th and 8: Smith to Avant, 15. I thought a hold was missed.
    1st and 10: Smith scrabmles for 9.
    2nd and 1: Smith to West for 5.
    1st and 10: Smith runs for 6. Pats call timeout #2. 3:30 left. Chandler Jones is on the sidelines getting his knee looked at.
    2nd and 4: Smith for 6.
    1st and 10: Smith to Wilson, 19.
    1st and goal: West loses 2 yards. Sheard with the play.

    It brings us to the two minute warning. Andy Reid clock management in full force. We'll come back with KC having a 2nd and goal from the 3.

    2nd and goal: False Start, Fisher!
    2nd and goal: Smith to Avant, 4.
    3rd and goal: Smith to Avant, incomplete. Logan Ryan called for PI. Good call.
    1st and goal: Smith to Conley, incomplete.
    2nd and goal: Smith on an option pitch to West, 3, TD.

    27-20 Pats. 1:13 left.

    We have to watch for an onsides, then we have to run the football.

    PatsPossession 10. We start at the KC 44. Gronk catches the onsides kick.
    1st and 10: Jackson loses 2 yards. KC timeout #1.
    2nd and 12: Brady to Gronk, off his hands. Jules with the catch! 12 yards! First down! Timeout #2 KC. That should do it.
    1st and 10: Kneel. Timeout #3 KC.
    2nd and 11: Kneel.
    3rd and 12: Kneel.

    Game!

    AFC Championship bound! 5 years in a row!!!
