* How Matt Nagy Schooled The Patriots:

"Head coach Andy Reid's and offensive coordinator Matt Nagy's creative play design and blend of West Coast and spread concepts were tailor-made for the kind of personnel the Chiefs now have, but especially Alex Smith.

"The Chiefs attacked the Patriots with a variety of formations and options. There was lots of motion pre-snap. There was read-option. There was run-pass option. There were jet sweeps and fake jet sweeps. There was pistol. There was play-action. There were plenty of crossing routes.

"Rookie running back Kareem Hunt did a little bit of everything. Dynamic wideout Tyreek Hill lined up pretty much everywhere, including the backfield. Smith - who threw for more than 300 yards for just the seventh time in his 13-year career - deftly controlled all of it."
