It's almost time to watch the Chiefs vs Patriots live stream. And it catches an (8-5) Kansas City team looking to bounce back against a (3-10) New England squad trying to build off a strong win last week. Patrick Mahomes leads his Chiefs into Foxborough to take on Bailey Zappe and the Patriots for this NFL live stream

If the Patriots want to close out the 2023 season with some hope for next year, then the good vibes may have started with their 21-18 win over the Steelers last week. Quarterback Bailey Zappe led the offense to one of their best performances of the season, throwing three touchdowns for 240 yards on 19-of-28 passing. It was just his fourth career start and second of the season. He's now 3-1 as a starter overall. 

Other than the strong play of their quarterback, there were a few other key contributors for the Pats. Running back Ezekiel Elliott racked up 140 yards of total offense with a receiving touchdown, while tight end Hunter Henry caught two scores and wideout JuJu Smith Schuster reeled in four passes for 90 yards. In total, four Patriots made a play of 15 yards or more in the win. 

While the offense looks to have found something in New England, the defense will try to stay the course against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. If Kansas City fans are looking for a get-right game against a cellar-dweller, this may not be the matchup for them.

Especially since the Chiefs offense has struggled this season. They're facing a team that hasn’t allowed more than 21 points in five straight games while Kansas City is averaging a touchdown less per game than they did a year ago. Plus, Mahomes is coming off his third sub-80 passer rating game in four weeks. The two-time MVP has six such games this season. One more game like that and he’ll match his total from the last two seasons combined.

DraftKings has the Chiefs as 9-point road favorites against the Patriots with an over/under of 39.5 points.

Chiefs: Isiah Pacheco (RB), Donovan Smith (OT), Malik Herring (DE), Thompson (BJ), Matt Dickerson (DT), Neil Farrell (DT), Joshua Williams (CB)

Will Taylor Swift attend Chiefs vs Patriots? 

With nothing scheduled for Taylor Swift's Eras Tour until after the new year, we know that TayTay has some free time on her schedule. Time for embracing her two new passions; Chiefs' tight end Travis Kelce and the game of football.

There have been no reports as to whether or not Swift will be at Gillette Stadium, but the educated guess is that Swift will travel to Foxboro to take in her seventh Chiefs game since her relationship with Kelce began. Also, Swift was just in New York celebrating her 34th birthday, a short jet ride away from Foxboro. 

The Kansas City now has their first losing streak in their Swift Era. They fell to the Packers two weeks ago with Taylor at Lambeau and lost last week at Arrowhead with Swift in the building as well.  

The Chiefs are 4-2 when Swift is in attendance.
