What They're Saying: Kansas City Chiefs


Kansas City Chiefs coaches and players comment on their upcoming Sunday Night Football game against the New England Patriots.

On Playing the Patriots...

"I have the ultimate respect, they're well-coached, they've got good players. I've known Bill a long time and I have a ton of respect for him and the way he goes about his business. They'll continue to get better as the season goes on. That's how he does it. It's a tribute to him and how he goes about that. I think they're playing really good football right now, so we've got to make sure we prep and go through the process that you have to do every week before you play a great football team."
- Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid

"As a team, we are going to go in and try to compete. They are a good team in the AFC every single year. Just to compete against one of the best teams in the league is going to be an awesome opportunity."
- Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes

On the Patriots Defense...

"They're going to have a great game plan. They're going to have ways to take away the stuff that we've had success with so far this season, and I expect them to throw some stuff out there that's unscouted. But, at the same time, we're going to keep just working on our game plan and keep doing things that we do well in order to have success."
- Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes

"I feel like with the whole defense that the Patriots have – I mean, guys that can just kind of intermix and play each other's roles because they know their defense and their scheme so well. So, they're going to put up definitely a challenge, and it's something that I'm excited just to have the opportunity to play against a great team on Sunday Night."
- Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes

On Bill Belichick...

"He is very intelligent. He loves the sport. He doesn't just love the sport, he loves the history of the game and is passionate about it and brings that every day."
- Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid

On Tom Brady...

"Just the way he can move within the pocket and still find lanes to throw the ball is something that I find is truly special. I mean, I try to do that, but I mean, you have to keep working on that. He's done that his whole entire career, and it's something that bought him a lot of extra time in the pocket to make a lot of great throws."
- Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes

On Josh Gordon...

"Josh is a good football player. He's big, he's fast, he's strong, all those things and he's got a really good guy throwing to him. So, you've got to make sure that you do that. I wouldn't say the other receivers – you know, you've got to cover them too and they're good players. We've got to make sure we do a good job there."
- Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid

On Sony Michel...

"I think he runs hard, aggressive, he can catch the football, he's a smart kid, and he's a good football player."
- Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid
