The Patriots will be in a rare spot come Sunday.
Considering Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have won five Super Bowl's and have made it to eight in the last two decades, it's hard to believe they will be underdogs come Sunday when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game. Well, according to a report from BetDSI sportsbook, via Forbes, the Patriots haven't been underdogs since September 20th in 2015. This would make it the first time in 67 games, both regular season and postseason that the Pats aren't favored.
Despite the Chiefs being favored by three points, Brady isn't worried and only cares about one thing: winning the game on Sunday.
“I don’t think about it too much, what people might say or think,” Brady said via MassLive.com. "I know we’re playing against a very good football team. They’re the first seed for a reason. They’ve had a great season and we’re going to have to go into a really tough environment and play our best football, so it’s a great opportunity for us and hopefully, we can take advantage of it."
If the Patriots win on Sunday, they will play either the New Orleans Saints or the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53, which would be Brady's ninth trip to the Championship game.
