Experts share their picks for the Patriots Week 15 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, presented by SERVPRO.

Mike Reiss, ESPN:

Pick: Chiefs 20, Patriots 10

The defense has been up to the challenge for most of the season and Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce is obviously as challenging of a combination as the unit has faced.

Tom Blair, NFL.com: Chiefs 23, Patriots 14

Why Ali is taking the Chiefs: The Patriots' long-awaited offensive breakout finally arrived last Thursday, when they scored as many touchdowns (three) in the first half at Pittsburgh as they had in their previous four games combined. And while the scoring was short-lived -- they punted on five of their six second-half possessions, with an INT mixed in -- it's not like the Chiefs have been lighting up scoreboards this season, either. (At least not in the way we've grown to expect.) New England's defense is feisty enough to cause Kansas City some continued frustration, but I have have complete confidence in Patrick Mahomes preventing the first three-game losing streak of his career. And a lot less confidence in Bailey Zappe picking apart Steve Spagnuolo's defense. So on Sunday, I'll take the dynasty that is over the dynasty that was.

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports:

Pick: Chiefs 23, Patriots 10

The Chiefs go into Foxborough angry after what transpired at the end of their loss to the Bills. An angry Patrick Mahomes is never a good thing for an opponent. But the Chiefs have struggled to score points, and the New England defense is sound. The problem is the Patriots offense. The Chiefs will limit them and win this one.

Mike Florio: Chiefs 24, Patriots 20

Chris Simms: Chiefs 21, Patriots 16

Paul Perillo, Patriots.com:

Pick: Chiefs 24, Patriots 13

Zappe struggles trying to build off solid win in Pittsburgh.

Mike Dussault, Patriots.com:

Pick: Chiefs 24, Patriots 16

The Patriots defense is going to give the Chiefs problems on offense, but the bigger question is can the Pats offense produce enough points to truly put the pressure on Mahomes? It's still a quarterback league and Mahomes has to get the edge unless Zappe pulls off something truly special.

Evan Lazar, Patriots.com:

Pick: Chiefs 24, Patriots 16

Although there is a trap game element here for the Chiefs, it's a better bet that the Patriots get a focused KC team coming off an emotional loss against Buffalo. New England remains competitive with a back door cover, but the Chiefs control the game and take care of business.
