Brady and Mahomes are building quite a rivalry in recent seasons. Two years ago, Brady outlasted Mahomes in a wild 43-40 regulars season win before leading the Patriots into Arrowhead Stadium and engineered a dramatic 37-31 overtime victory to advance to the Super Bowl. Of course, the Chiefs rebounded from that defeat with a championship run a season ago. Mahomes got the best of both ensuing head-to-head matchups with Brady in a 23-16 victory last season and a 27-24 victory in late November.
