Can the Chiefs spoil the Patriots' march to 19-0 before it begins? Yes, actually.

The NFL season begins Thursday night in Foxborough, Mass., with what is supposed to be a dual commemoration of the on-field prowess of the New England Patriots.

They and their fans are to celebrate last season’s fifth Super Bowl triumph during the reign of Coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady.

In 2014, Brady threw two interceptions and was replaced by backup Jimmy Garoppolo in an ugly 41-14 defeat at Kansas City in a Monday night game that dropped the Patriots’ record to 2-2 and prompted speculation that the beginning of the end of Brady’s tenure as an all-time-great might be at hand.

The key to having a chance to beat the Patriots, as always, is having pass rushers who can bother Brady — hit him regularly, disrupt his rhythm and put him on the move.

The primary objective on offense for the Chiefs could be for quarterback Alex Smith to find ways to get the football into the hands of second-year wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
