The New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs are playing in the biggest game of 2018 regular season to date tonight on Sunday Night Football. The undefeated Chiefs bring perhaps the NFL’s best offense into Foxboro where they will face Tom Brady and the defending AFC champion Patriots. If New England pulls off the win, they will have the tiebreaker over Kansas City and an inside track on home-field advantage so long as the Chiefs lose at least one more game. If the Chiefs win, they will have knocked off all three of last season’s AFC division champions in the span of three weeks, and will have at least a two-game lead over all three of them. A win in this game essentially secures home-field advantage for Kansas City.
Neither team is at full strength in this game. Both sides are dealing with injuries that will play a major part in determining the outcome. The Patriots and the Chiefs both just announced which players will be missing this game in their seven inactive slots. Here are the players that they chose.
