Patriots giggle at Chiefs on Monday Night Football

Posted:

The New England Patriots have opened some daylight atop the AFC East. Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes to tight end Rob Gronkowski and the Patriots routed the offensively challenged Kansas City Chiefs 34-3.

Julian Edelman returned a punt 72 yards for a touchdown and Kyle Arrington had two interceptions as the 7-3 Patriots increased their AFC East lead to two games over Buffalo and the New York Jets.

The Chiefs (4-6) weren't expected to do much on offense behind untested quarterback Tyler Palko, making his first career start with Matt Cassel injured. And they didn't, managing just a 26-yard field goal by Ryan Succop with 1:30 left in the first quarter for their only lead.

The Chiefs lost their third straight. Their offense has scored 16 points in those three losses.
