Second Down a Focal Point as Patriots Prepare for Chiefs

By Kyle Hightower AP Sports Writer

Patriots coach Bill Belichick had much to lament about his team's loss to the Texans. But one thing that stuck out was how his defense struggled to defend the pass on second down.  It will again be a focal point as New England crafts a game plan it hopes can slow down reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs' multifaceted offense. It won't be an easy proposition against a Chiefs offense that is tied for ninth in the NFL averaging 5.9 yards per play on second down.
