GAME: New England Patriots (6-4) at Kansas City Chiefs (6-4).
TIME: Sunday, 1 p.m. EST.
The New England Patriots may be on their first winning streak of the season and in first place in the AFC East, but quarterback Tom Brady knows his team's health is a major concern. New England, which had to prepare this week without coach Bill Belichick, looks to extend its winning streak to a season-high three straight games when it visits the Kansas City Chiefs .
''We are so far away compared to a Super Bowl team,'' Brady said. ''When we start getting some guys back, we'll see what kind of team we've got. We are just trying to hang on until we get some reinforcements. Hopefully, we get some guys back this week.''
