The forecast has improved over the week, which is good news for the home team. The opponent is still the Patriots, which is bad news for the home team. The home team has Patrick Mahomes, which is the best news possible. But there is not enough around him yet. Losses to patriots, frames, chargers and seahawks did not result from Mahomes, but from the lack of high-end talent around him. The patriots, between talent and coaching and the resistance of Tom Brady, can make the bosses what will not be easy to do: Score at least one point in a single elimination mode. Look for Patriots coach Bill Belichick to confuse Mahomes, include Tyreek Hill, rule the clock and ultimately win in the only state that ever matters. Points scored vs. point allowed.
