Gronk picked up 42 on the play on a drive which finished with a 50-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski. With the Chiefs trailing 40-33, he connected with Hill again for a 75-yard score that tied the game with just over three minutes remaining.

While the game ended on a field goal, it was a battle between quarterbacks as the Patriots' (4-2) Tom Brady took on the Chiefs' (5-1) Patrick Mahomes.

The Patriots now have at least one interception in each of their first six games of the season.

Gordon gives Tom Brady a big deep threat to go with the likes of Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski and James White. He threw two picks in the first half, but didn't throw any in the second half.

The Patriots held a 24-9 lead at halftime, but the Chiefs scored 17 points in the third quarter to narrow the score. That was followed by a 14-yard TD strike to Hill that came on the heels of a fumble by Brady, helping trim New England's lead to 27-26 entering the fourth quarter. Mahomes leads the National Football League with 14 passing touchdowns, tight end Travis Kelce has recorded three 100-yard games, Kareem Hunt has already scored five touchdowns, and Tyreek Hill (three TDs) is a threat to go the distance every time he touches the ball.

So, Brady sprung free and was in the end zone a couple of seconds later.

Mahomes' capacity to read his progressions from the pocket combined with his ability to scramble and make plays of the run will put strain on the Patriots' pass rush and secondary.
