City Chiefs Irving Fryar Jersey Salute to Service , but mounted a comeback in the fourth quarter to defeat the Chiefs with a last-second field goal from Stephen Gostkowski. The final score was Patriots 43, Chiefs 40.Here’s the instant analysis from the game.First off .Tom Brady had a great, but not perfect, gameBrady finished the day completing 24 of 35 passes (68.6%) for 340 yards and a touchdown, while adding another 4-yard touchdown run. He led the game-winning drive in the fourth quarter and New England didn’t punt all day. Only one drive ended on the Patriots side of the field and six made it to the red zone. The Patriots offense was unstoppable all day.But he wasn’t perfect. Brady made a bone-headed decision to hold on to the football on third down and allowed the pressure to close in and the Chiefs forced and recovered the fumble on the Patriots 29-yard line. That was bad.Brady also missed a few open targets, including one weird pass by the goal line where he threw it a mile wide of Julian Edelman because he made a last-second decision to throw in a different direction. Weird move, Tom.Brady’s still the best quarterback for New England, but he’s been making some weird decisions this year. Hopefully he’ll settle down and the Patriots will finally be able to score 50 points.That was Brady’s 200th career regular season victory. Congrats, Tom!Sony Michel is now Money MichelMichel finished the day with 106 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns as he continues to show why he was a first round pick. Michel now has three straight games with 100+ yards from scrimmage and a touchdown, and has 316 rushing yards, 12 receiving yards, and 4 touchdowns over the past three games.Michel and White, a potential law firm in downtown Boston John Hannah Jersey , combined for 198 yards from scrimmage. Over the past three weeks, they’ve combined for 609 yards from scrimmage and 7 touchdowns. That’s incredible production from the Patriots backfield.Are we concerned about Rob Gronkowski- oh, wait, there he isGronkowski finished the game with 97 yards on 3 catches, with a 42-yard grab and a 39-yard catch on the team’s final two drives. He was oddly quiet in the Patriots passing attack, especially with Chiefs safeties Eric Berry and Eric Murray both injured and not playing. And yet, there Gronk was, making big plays when it mattered most.Still, are people worried that Gronkowski isn’t producing more? He hasn’t scored a touchdown in five games, the longest stretch of his career. He was doing a great job blocking. Is he just biding his time to start racking up production?Week 6 Patriots vs Chiefs Thursday injury report: Chris Hogan misses practice The New England Patriots returned to the practice fields today to hold a walkthrough session leading up to their highly anticipated prime time matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. And while attendance was again good, it was – as opposed to yesterday – not perfect as a look at the latest injury report shows:Did not participateAfter being limited during yesterday’s session and being spotted in the locker room walking with a limp, wideout Chris Hogan was held out of today’s practice. The veteran, who has had an up-and-down season so far but was projected to benefit from Julian Edelman’s return to the lineup Authentic Tedy Bruschi Jersey , is one of New England’s top options at the position and a trusted weapon for quarterback Tom Brady.Four of the Chiefs’ top defenders remain out, meanwhile, which further hurts their chances of actually playing on Sunday. With the Patriots offense finding its groove recently, this could be a devastating situation for a defense that has not always been up to the challenge through its first five games.Limited participationWith the exception of Chris Hogan being downgraded, the list of limited participants remained the same as yesterday for New England. On a list of notable names, one stands out: Sony Michel, who dealt with a knee injury all summer long, remains limited. With the Patriots’ running back group not being as deep as it ideally would be, Michel’s injury situation is one worth keeping a close eye on from the team’s perspective.Chiefs wideout De’Anthony Thomas, meanwhile, is a new addition to the list. Thomas is a depth player on offense but an important piece of Kansas City’s special teams units.Full participationSpencer Ware was back on the practice field for the Chiefs today and just like his teammates listed as full participants will be good to go on Sunday.
