QUICK START

Boston Herald - - GAMEDAY PREVIEW -

This ap­plies to every foot­ball game at every level, but the open­ing few pos­ses­sions have been es­pe­cially im­por­tant for the Pa­tri­ots and Chiefs this sea­son. Kan­sas City has outscored op­po­nents 59-9 in the first quar­ter. The Chiefs' first three pos­ses­sions of each game have yielded the fol­low­ing cu­mu­la­tive re­sults: Nine touch­downs, three punts, two field goals and one in­ter­cep­tion. They're al­ways play­ing from ahead.

The Pa­tri­ots, mean­while, dug deep holes in their losses to the Jaguars and Lions. Jack­sonville scored touch­downs on each of its first two pos­ses­sions, while Detroit went field goal-touch­down-field goal to open its Week 3 vic­tory.
