The 2017 NFL season is starting with a stunning upset. The Chiefs marched into Gillette Stadium and upended the Patriots, 42-27. Rookie running back Kareem Hunt fumbled on his first career touch and then tore New England's defense apart the rest of the night. The third-round pick had 246 total yards and three touchdowns. Hunt ran for 148 yards on 17 carries and collected five receptions for 98 yards, including a 78-yard score. Alex Smith added 368 passing yards and four touchdowns.
The defending-champion Pats got three TDs on the ground from Mike Gillislee. Tom Brady struggled completing only 16-of-36 passes for 267 yards and no touchdown passes.
