After all, the Kansas City Chiefs, who steamrolled the Patriots in Week 1, also won Sunday, improving to 2-0 with a victory over the formidable Philadelphia Eagles.
In the eyes of many, the Patriots, once considered a threat to go 19-0, still have some ground to make up as a result of their Week 1 setback. USA TODAY, for instance, has the Patriots at No. 6 in its NFL power rankings through two weeks, trailing five perennial contenders with 2-0 records. ESPN.com, meanwhile, has the Patriots at No. 4, while NFL.com pegs New England as the league’s No. 3 team.
All of this could change in time, of course, especially if the Patriots play up to their obvious potential and go on a lengthy winning streak. FS1’s Skip Bayless doesn’t need any convincing, though. He believes the Patriots still are the NFL’s best team despite their 42-27 season-opening loss to the Chiefs.
His reason: Tom Brady.
