Patriots vs Chiefs Recap: Best of Social Media Divisional RoundGreg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

The defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots entered Saturday afternoon’s match up with the Kansas City Chiefs primarily healthy for the first time in over a month with the headliner wide receiver Julian Edelman returning to the field.

After missing practices and fears of another injury, tight end Rob Gronkowski was active, and made his presence known early. Scoring on the Patriots first drive of the game.

Brady threw this 42 yard bomb to Keshawn Martin. Marin signed a two year extension earlier the same day.

With the score 7-3 in favor of the Patriots, fans were treated to possibly one of the greatest runs in Tom Brady’s career.

He was a little bit fired up afterwards.

The ruling on the field was he was a yard short of the goal line, but Brady would sneak it in a play later for the score. The Patriots jumped out to a 14-3 lead and this ridiculous statistic was passed around Twitter.

With the Chiefs driving following the Patriots score, Chandler Jones stepped up big following his controversial week by forcing this fumble on running back Knile Davis that was recovered by Dont’a Hightower.

Gronkowski wasn’t finished as Brady would hit his favorite postseason target yet again in the end zone but this time it was historic. With eight minutes to go in the third, the Patriots had a comfortable 21-6 lead as the offense appeared to be back in form

Lets dance.

Stephen Gostkowski continues to break and set records.

With the score 27-13 late in the fourth quarter, safety Devin McCourty delivered this vicious legal hit on Chiefs receiver Chris Conley.

His brother Jason was impressed.

The Chiefs tried to make it interesting late in the fourth quarter by cutting the deficit to 27-20 but head coach Andy Reid’s clock management struggles returned.

In the end, the Patriots held on for a 27-20 final score to advance to the AFC Championship game for a fifth consecutive season following the recovery of an onside kick attempt.

Bill Belichick was celebrating…not really.

The players followed suit.

Thumbs up! Denver here we come.
