Donovan Mitchell scored 25 before fouling out and Joe Ingles had 15 for the Jazz.
Mitchell started finding lanes to the basket late and got the Jazz within 85-80 after he fueled a 10-2 run. But Paul, who matched his scoring high for this playoff run, hit a pull-up jumper and found Trevor Ariza for a 3-pointer to put the Rockets back up by double digits and they never looked back.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Kevin Durant had 38 points and nine rebounds and Golden State soundly defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 118-92 on Sunday to take a commanding 3-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series.
The Warriors responded to their 19-point loss in Game 3 with a resounding effort that produced a wire-to-wire win with leads as large as 26 points.
Durant made 15 of 27 shots. Stephen Curry scored 23 Authentic Cordy Glenn Jersey , Klay Thompson added 13 and Quinn Cook, who was a Pelicans reserve earlier this season, contributed 12 points.
NEW YORK (AP) – The NBA has fined Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri $25,000 for walking onto the court at halftime of Game 3 against the Cleveland Cavaliers to verbally confront officials for reversing a call.
It stems from an incident that occurred Saturday night during the Raptors’ 105-103 loss to the Cavaliers.
Toronto had been called for 14 fouls in the first half, compared with eight for Cleveland. The Raptors were irate that what had appeared to be a Serge Ibaka basket and potential free throw was downgraded to a foul with no basket and no free throw.
CLEVELAND (AP) – LeBron James banked in a running one-hander at the buzzer, giving Cleveland a 105-103 win over Toronto on Saturday night in Game 3 and shoving the Raptors to the edge of their most devastating playoff exit.
After the Raptors tied it on rookie OG Anunoby’s 3-pointer with eight seconds left Authentic Jose Quintana Jersey , James took the inbounds pass, dribbled the length of the floor and in one motion, dropped his 10-footer in front of Toronto’s stunned bench.
James finished with 38 points, Kevin Love added 21 and 16 rebounds and Kyle Korver 18 for the Cavs, who can sweep the Raptors for the second straight year.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Al Horford scored the go-ahead basket for Boston late in overtime in a wild Game 3 where the Philadelphia 76ers gave away the basketball and the confetti, leading the Celtics to a 101-98 win on Saturday night.
The Celtics go for the sweep on Monday.
The ending to regulation was about as wild as it gets for both teams. JJ Redick threw away the basketball on an errant pass to no one that was scooped by Terry Rozier who threw to Jaylen Brown for the basket and an 89-87 lead.
Seconds later Durham Smythe Super Bowl LI Jersey , Marco Belinelli stunned everyone with a falling 22-footer in front of the 76ers bench as time expired that sent the game into overtime – and confetti mistakenly blasted from the cannon. There was about a seven-minute delay while team employees scrambled to clean up the mess on the court.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) – Marc-Andre Fleury made 28 saves in his fourth shutout of the playoffs and the expansion Vegas Golden Knights are headed to the Western Conference Final in their inaugural season after beating the San Jose Sharks 3-0 in Game 6 of their second-round series Sunday.
Jonathan Marchessault opened the scoring, Nate Schmidt added an insurance goal that was only detectable by replay and Cody Eakin sealed it with an empty-netter to help Vegas become just the third team in NHL history to win multiple series in its first season.
The Toronto Arenas won the Stanley Cup in the first postseason in league history in 1918 and St. Louis won two rounds to win the all-expansion West Division in 1968.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Brayden Point and J.T. Miller scored second-period goals, helping the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Boston Bruins 3-1 Sunday and advance to the Eastern Conference final for the third time in four years.
Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 27 shots – 14 in the final period – for the Lightning, who rebounded from losing the series opener at home to eliminate the Bruins in five games.
David Krejci scored in the final minute of the first period to give Boston a 1-0 lead that Point erased with his unassisted goal at 10:43 of the second.
Miller’s power-play goal broke the tie less than four minutes later Rashaad Penny Super Bowl LI Jersey , and Anton Stralman added an empty-netter with 1:29 remaining to end any chance for a Boston comeback.
WASHINGTON (AP) – Jakub Vrana scored the go-ahead goal with 4:38 remaining, Braden Holtby made 35 saves and the Washington Capitals beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-3 in Game 5 Saturday night to take a 3-2 lead in the second-round series and put the back-to-back defending Stanley Cup champions on the brink of elimination.
Vrana made coach Barry Trotz look like a genius for moving him to the top line alongside Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov, replacing Devante Smith-Pelly in the second period. Vrana sprung Kuznetsov for a breakaway on Washington’s tying goal 52 seconds into the third and finished off Ovechkin’s pass for the game-winner.
The Capitals are one victory from advancing to the Eastern Conference final for the first time in the Ovechkin era and overall since 1998, when they reached the Stanley Cup Final.

JACKSONVILLE J'Mon Moore Jersey Elite , Fla. — Indianapolis hasn’t taken many beatings at Lucas Oil Stadium like the one Jacksonville gave it on Oct. 22.
The Jaguars blanked the Colts 27-0, tying a franchise record with 10 sacks while producing 518 yards of offense. That was without running back Leonard Fournette, center Brandon Linder and receiver Dede Westbrook, who have all returned from injury.
Still, the Colts will try to spoil Jacksonville’s playoff push in the rematch Sunday at EverBank Field.Article continues below ...
The Jaguars (7-4) start a three-game homestand tied atop the AFC South with Tennessee.
Indianapolis (3-8) lost two in a row and five of its last six during a season in which star quarterback Andrew Luck has missed the entire year with a shoulder injury. Still, Indianapolis coach Chuck Pagano believes his team has improved from the first meeting.
“We’re a totally different team,” Pagano said. “I told them (Wednesday) morning that we didn’t play well, didn’t do much of anything really good in that first ballgame against these guys. Credit Jacksonville, they played well and got the win. Didn’t make it much of a game Adidas Blake Wheeler Jersey , we understand that, but we’re a totally different team. … We’ve gotten better.”
The Jaguars will be ready to return to the field as well after suffering a disappointing 27-24 loss Sunday at Arizona. The Cardinals kicked a 57-yard field goal with one second left, allowing former Jacksonville quarterback Blaine Gabbert to get a win. The loss snapped a four-game winning streak that started in Indianapolis.
The Jaguars have yet to lose consecutive games this season under first-year coach Doug Marrone after a 3-13 season last year.
“In the beginning, it was win-loss-win-loss and then we hit a streak of four,” Marrone said. “Now, you hit another one. Now, it’s time you have to bounce back and go. You want to see how the team responds. I know that I spoke to a lot of players and I don’t feel that this team is not going to be able to respond.”
There’s one elite unit in this game and that’s the Jaguars defense. Jacksonville ranks first in the following categories: total defense, scoring defense, passing defense and sacks. The Jaguars have also forced 25 takeaways to rank second in the NFL.
Defensive ends Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue are the only tandem in the NFL to each have 10 sacks this season. Campbell has 11 1/2 Authentic Tyler Thornburg Jersey , while Ngakoue has 10. Ngakoue, in his second year, also leads the NFL in forced fumbles with six.
The two combined to sack Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett 4 1/2 times in the first meeting. Indianapolis hasn’t solved the problem either, giving up eight sacks last week in a 20-16 loss to visiting Tennessee.
Pagano addressed the issue this week.
“Second-and-17, I’ve got no plays,” Pagano said. “Chud (offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski) has got no plays on there if you’re looking for the second-and-17 call. There’s not a second-and-17 call on there. It’s a get back on track down. So, what’s a get back on track play? Screen, draw, check down Authentic Mason Rudolph Jersey , three-quick game.”
The Jaguars’ offense is struggling of late but met little resistance in the first meeting. Quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 330 yards and the Jaguars scored on their first four possessions (two touchdowns, two field goals).
“I don’t know about changing a whole lot,” Bortles said. “I don’t think anyone likes to get beat like that, so anytime you get an opportunity to play a team that that was how it went the first round, I think they’re going to bring a little extra juice. They have been playing pretty well since we played them. The defense has been playing pretty well.”
The trick for Marrone will be walking the line of keeping with what worked while knowing Pagano will have made adjustments.
“Whatever has worked well, they’re probably going to say, ‘OK, we’re going to make sure that they don’t get this again on us,'” Marrone said. “Well Authentic Dansby Swanson Jersey , wait a minute, they got you out the first time and you didn’t do anything the second time. So, it’s things like that and then you’re challenged because it worked and how do you get it to work and not look the same. So, it’s a back and forth situation.”
Indianapolis could have success finding tight end Jack Doyle (59 catches for 544 yards and two touchdowns this season) on Sunday. Connecting with him late in the game would be big for the Colts, who have been outscored 117-28 in the fourth quarter this season.
“If I knew, we’d fix it,” Doyle said. “It’s just something we’ve got to work through. Something we’ll continue to work because we have the right guys that will work through it, and we’ll get better.”.

The AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs head to Texas this weekend to face a Dallas Cowboys team at a crossroads.
The Cowboys (4-3) have posted back-to-back victories for the first time this season Authentic Joel Iyiegbuniwe Jersey , winning at San Francisco and Washington the last two outings. But just when Dallas appears to be gaining momentum, the drawn-out Ezekiel Elliott suspension saga seems to have ended with the Cowboys running back being exiled for six games.
Dallas will likely be playing without Elliott for the first time this week as he begins his six-game suspension for violation of the NFL’s personal-conduct policy.Article continues below ...
The suspension was initially handed down by the league in August after an investigation into a domestic-assault claim against Elliott. That set off a series of appeals. Elliott was granted a restraining order against the NFL in September and again in October, allowing him to play in the first seven games. However, the NFL won appeals in both cases.
It appears Elliott will finally have to sit out, pending yet another appeal by the NFLPA that is expected to be ruled on by Friday.
If Elliott does indeed begin his suspension, the Cowboys will turn to Alfred Morris as the starting running back with Darren McFadden and Rod Smith serving as backups.
Morris should be fresh as he’s carried only 13 times so far this season despite averaging a team-best 8.1 yards per rush. Elliott was averaging 23 carries per game Authentic Paul Worrilow Jersey , but Morris and the other two running backs will likely split up that number if the Cowboys continue to be rush-heavy on offense.
“We have great confidence in the guys that are going to play in his place,” Jason Garrett said about Elliott’s potential absence. “Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden and Rod Smith will all get opportunities to carry the football for us in different situations.”
Chiefs coach Andy Reid admitted uncertainty, and a degree of indifference, as to whether Elliott would be able to play on Sunday afternoon. Like Garrett, Reid downplayed the difference between Elliott and the Dallas backup running backs.
“I don’t know how all of that works, nor do I really care right now Authentic Shelby Miller Jersey ,” Reid said. “We know they also have a couple of other backs, one I’m familiar with the kid that played at Washington (Morris) and then obviously the kid that played at Oakland (McFadden). They’ve got a few running backs that are pretty good football players. We’ll prepare for their system and schemes that they use and go about it that way.”
Kansas City (6-2) doesn’t have to deal with any kind of ambiguity when its offense is on the field. The Chiefs have been rolling behind quarterback Alex Smith’s best season as a pro, the dynamic performance of tight end Travis Kelce and the breakout performance of rookie running back Kareem Hunt.
On Monday night, Smith connected with Kelce seven times for 133 yards, including a 29-yard touchdown that put Kansas City in front of Denver, 14-0 Adidas Shayne Gostisbehere Jersey , midway through the first quarter.
Although Hunt had a relatively quiet night on Monday, he’s leading the NFL in rushing yards with 763 and, as if that’s not enough, has 28 receptions for another 307 yards.
“Really good football player,” Garrett said about Hunt. “They do a great job on offense. They have a lot of different weapons and they know how to use them and (Hunt is) the engine behind that offense. They really like to hand him the football and he’s a very instinctive runner.”
Perhaps more worrisome for the Cowboys, Kansas City didn’t need to lean heavily on its offense for production against Denver on Monday.
The Chiefs defense intercepted three passes and recovered a fumble Wholesale Jeff Locke Jersey , which cornerback Marcus Peters returned 45 yards for a touchdown to put Kansas City ahead 7-0. Kansas City also recovered a fumble on punt coverage and kicker Harrison Butker made five field goals.
Dallas has had its struggles with dynamic offenses so far this season and prolific quarterbacks in particular. The Rams’ Jared Goff and the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers played key roles in handing the Cowboys back-to-back losses a few weeks back.
Smith, who has passed for 2,181 yards and 16 TDs with no interceptions, could be the next QB to frustrate the Dallas defense.
“Their quarterback is a maestro orchestrating their offense and Andy (Reid) obviously does a great job of putting it all together,” Garrett said. “You can see why they’ve had the success that they’ve had.”.

OTTAWA Christian Kirk Super Bowl LI Jersey , Ontario (AP) Colin White has only had 11 games to make a positive impression in Ottawa. But with the Senators missing four veteran forwards Tuesday night, that’s exactly what he did.
The 21-year-old White scored his first NHL goal and undermanned Ottawa went on to a 5-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils.
White, who has split time between Ottawa and the American Hockey League this season, looked right at home playing alongside Matt Duchene and Mike Hoffman, who also scored.Article continues below ...
”He’s getting better and better every night,” said Duchene Adidas Aleksander Barkov Jersey , who had three points. ”He’s going to be a heck of a hockey player in this organization and I’m really enjoying playing with him.”
Senators coach Guy Boucher has been impressed with White, but said Duchene deserves a great deal of credit for taking him under his wing and helping him adapt to the NHL.
”I think the kid is learning fast and he’s helping us,” Boucher said. ”Right now he’s showing us that he’s ready to play at this level and we’ll see where it takes us. He’s relentless, and that’s my type of person.
”I like the fact that Duchene is really leading with him and helping him and that connection is good.”
White was excited to finally get his first goal. He picked up his first career assist last Saturday.
”It was a nice play all around,” White said. ”Duchene brought it in, (Thomas Chabot) looked off the D and made a great play back door and then I just got it and ripped it. It was pretty exciting.”
Duchene had a goal and two assists. Chris DiDomenico and Zack Smith also scored for Ottawa Akeem Spence Jersey Elite , and Craig Anderson made 30 saves.
The Senators were already missing Mark Stone (knee) and Bobby Ryan (hand) on Tuesday when they learned they would be without Derick Brassard, who is banged up, and Nate Thompson, who left the morning skate early as he continues to deal with a lower-body injury.
Travis Zajac, Taylor Hall and Kyle Palmieri scored for the Devils. Keith Kinkaid allowed four goals on 20 shots before being replaced by Eddie Lack, who gave up one goal on 12 shots.
Trailing 5-2 to start the third period Authentic Roquan Smith Jersey , the Devils made it a two-goal game on Palmieri’s 11th of the season.
The Senators took a 4-1 lead midway through the second when White scored on a great feed from Chabot in front of 13,991 at Canadian Tire Centre. The goal put an end to Kinkaid’s night.
The Devils trimmed the deficit when Hall scored his 19th of the season on a power play, extending his scoring streak to 11 games (seven goals, 10 assists). Alex Burrows was given a double-minor after taking exception to a hit from Hall and chasing him down before punching him.
”I thought it was a clean hit,” Hall said. ”He was losing his mind and I think he kneed me in the back of the head at one point.”
The Senators made it 5-2 in the final minute of the second when Jean-Gabriel Pageau fed Smith for a breakaway as he stepped out of the penalty box. He made no mistake in beating Lack, who made his first appearance in goal for the Devils.
”I feel I’ve got to make that save on the breakaway to give us a chance to come back Wholesale Derrius Guice Jersey ,” Lack said. ”Three goals is a little bit too much to start the third.”
An entertaining first period saw the Senators jump out to a 3-1 lead.
The Devils opened the scoring two minutes in as Stefan Noesen took advantage of a turnover and found Zajac, who beat Anderson short side.
The Senators made the most of a two-man advantage as Hoffman beat Kinkaid with a one-timer to the top corner. On the ensuing power play, DiDomenico scored his fifth of the season.
Duchene completed the scoring, beating Kinkaid short side on a play that started with a great behind-the-back pass from Hoffman.
NOTES: Ottawa recalled Max McCormick from Belleville of the AHL. … Hall played in his 500th NHL game.
Devils: Host the Calgary Flames on Thursday night.
Senators: Host the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.

JACKSONVILLE Authentic Gary Sanchez Jersey , Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette doesn’t want to be known as a trendsetter.
Fournette was the first college player to skip a bowl game in 2016 when he announced he wouldn’t join LSU in the Citrus Bowl.
Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey did the same a few days later. Both high-profile players opted to forgo the postseason to protect their bodies in advance of the NFL draft.Article continues below ...
Now, a year later, those kinds of decisions are becoming more popular.
Florida State standout safety Derwin James announced Tuesday he would not play in the Dec. 27 Independence Bowl against Southern Mississippi.
His decision followed several Texas players who chose to skip the Dec. 27 Texas Bowl against Missouri. Cornerback Holton Hill, safety DeShon Elliott Adidas Dylan Larkin Jersey , offensive lineman Connor Williams and running back Chris Warren won’t play while preparing for the draft.
”Everybody makes their own decisions, just like I made mine,” Fournette said Thursday. ”They have a future. They have a family just like I did, so everybody’s their own man when it comes to that.”
Others could join them Rashaan Evans Jersey Elite , especially since the decisions by Fournette and McCaffrey had no bearing on their draft stock. Fournette was the fourth overall pick, four spots ahead of McCaffrey.
It worked out well for Fournette, who battled an ankle injury throughout his junior season with the Tigers and felt he needed extra time to heal.
”For me, yeah Wholesale Jonathan Cooper Jersey ,” Fournette said. ”For the guys in college, I’m not saying follow behind me and not play in your bowl game. I did it because I was still hurting. I played the majority of my season hurt, and I felt like that was the best decision for my future, for my family.”
Fournette ranks seventh in the NFL with 822 yards rushing and is tied for ninth with eight total touchdowns.
McCaffrey has 1 Authentic Kenny Lofton Jersey ,005 all-purpose yards and six touchdowns.

HOUSTON (AP) Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson sustained a season-ending knee injury in practice on Thursday Roquan Smith Jersey Elite , two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.
The rookie suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees and will go on injured reserve. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team hadn’t announced the injury.
His injury is the latest blow to a team that lost three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt and linebacker Whitney Mercilus to season-ending injuries on Oct. 8.Article continues below ...
The former Clemson standout had been a bright spot in a challenging season for the Texans (3-4). The 12th overall pick in this year’s draft was the AFC offensive player of the month after throwing for 1,171 yards with 16 touchdowns and running for 145 yards and another score.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, talked about Watson’s injury, and noted that he rebounded from the same injury when he was with the Tigers.
”I talked to Deshaun late this afternoon and we are disappointed,” Swinney said. ”But Authentic Eddie Robinson Jersey , he is a person who has had some setbacks in his life, and always comes back stronger. Since he went through the rehab before, he knows what it takes.”
Watson also tore his ACL in 2014 as a freshman at Clemson.
”All he did after the injury in 2014 was come back and lead us to the national championship game twice and of course we won it last year,” Swinney said. ”He started all 30 games the last two years here. I have no doubt he will come back from this. He has the resolve. His work ethic and drive are incredible.”
Many people took to Twitter to express dismay at the injury and wish Watson well.
Watt tweeted: ”Minor setback for a major comeback. We’ve all seen what’s possible, can’t wait to see what’s next. With you every step of the way 4 Wholesale DaeSean Hamilton Jersey ,”.
NBA superstar LeBron James tweeted a link to a story about his injury and wrote: ”This seriously just made me sad man!! Get well and stronger asap.”
Watson’s development this season had been a revelation for a team that has featured a revolving door at quarterback over recent years. The Texans signed Brock Osweiler to a $72 million contract before last season, but he was benched before the season was over and shipped to Cleveland in the offseason.
When Houston traded up 13 picks to take Watson, many assumed he’d be the starter to open the season. But Coach Bill O’Brien insisted he back up Tom Savage.
Watson’s time as a backup was short-lived as Savage struggled in the opener and was benched at halftime, making the former Clemson standout the ninth quarterback the Texans have played in the past five years.
Watson made his first start in Week 2 and immediately excelled, leading the Texans to a 13-9 win on the road against the Bengals.
Since then Authentic Clive Walford Jersey , he’s turned a team known for defense into one with a high-flying offense. Under his guidance, the Texans had scored 30 or more points in five straight games to set a franchise record.
Watson’s 19 touchdown passes are tied for the league lead and are the most in NFL history through a player’s first seven games. He leads all quarterbacks this season with 21 touchdowns overall and has thrown four or more touchdown passes in three games this season to join Fran Tarkenton as the only rookies in NFL history to do so.
Now with his brilliant season cut short, the Texans will look to Savage to salvage this injury-plagued season and try to reach the playoffs for the third straight season.
The Texans host the Colts (2-6) on Sunday and Indianapolis announced earlier Thursday that franchise quarterback Andrew Luck had been placed on injured reserve as he recovers from a shoulder problem that hasn’t allowed him to play at all this season.
The Texans will sign Matt McGloin to back up Savage, a person familiar with the move told The AP on the condition of anonymity because the team hadn’t announced it. McGloin, who played for O’Brien at Penn State Trenton Cannon Super Bowl LI Jersey , was released by the Eagles on Sept. 1.

KANSAS CITY Authentic Roberto Perez Jersey , Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs are set to return to “Monday Night Football” for the first time in three seasons.
And this time, coach Andy Reid brings a 3-0 football team with an a big-play offense to go along with his opportunistic defense as the Washington Redskins visit Arrowhead Stadium.
Washington coach Jay Gruden said he sees plenty to worry about in the red-hot Kansas City offense with Kareem Hunt setting league records for rookie running backs.Article continues below ...
“He’s a danger out of the backfield,” Gruden said. “He’s definitely one of the guys that you have to have circled when you’re going into the game along with a couple of other key weapons like (tight end Travis) Kelce and the rest of the guys.”
The Chiefs have scored touchdowns of 50 or more yards in an NFL-record nine consecutive games. Hunt, who leads the league with 401 rushing yards and six touchdowns, owns three 50-yard-plus touchdowns, one in each of his first three NFL games.
Gruden praised Hunt’s ability to break arm tackles.
“You just never know with a young back like that what type of vision, what type of contact balance he’d have until they get in the game and you give them the ball,” Gruden said. “He’s taken advantage of the opportunity in a big way not only from getting handoffs but obviously catching passes. …
“Some guys seem to go down with ease Authentic Ian Happ Jersey , and some guys run through tackles, and he’s obviously proven to be one of those guys. But you also have to have great vision and patience, have the right tracks and make the right cuts. You usually don’t expect that for such a guy, for a rookie like that to come in here and do what he’s doing.”
On defense, the Chiefs thrive on creating turnovers with pressure on the cornerback and aggressive pass defense in the secondary.
“I call them a nuisance defense,” Gruden said. “They’re all over the place. They’re bump-and-run, man-to-man, they’re playing a lot Authentic Albert Almora Jr Jersey , they’re disrupting routes and they’re giving their pressure time to get there.”
Kansas City cornerback Marcus Peters owns 15 interceptions since his rookie season in 2015, more than any other player in the league in that span. Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins understands the risks he takes throwing toward the side of the field patrolled by Peters.
“He’s certainly one of those corners, there’s a few in the league, that you are aware of, you know where they are, you know where they line up and you respect them and don’t take that lightly as you make your decisions as to where to go with the football and how to read the defense,” Cousins said.
The Redskins (2-1) come to Kansas City fresh from a 27-10 home victory over the Oakland Raiders. The Washington defense held the Raiders to 128 total yards, including 32 on the ground. Reid enjoys big matchups in prime time Authentic Kris Bryant Jersey , and the Washington game marks the first of four night games for Kansas City over the next five weeks.
“I think it’s a compliment to the organization and the city,” Reid said. “That’s quite an honor to be able to be picked for a Monday night game.
“You kind of earn that respect, both us and Washington, to have that chance, and you’re playing against a team that’s playing really good football right now. They’re coming off a big win, and they’re well coached.”
The game marks the return of “Monday Night Football” to Arrowhead Stadium for the first time since the fourth week of the 2014 season.
That night proved memorable for Chiefs fans, with Kansas City dominating the New England Patriots 41-14. The home crowd set a Guinness World Record for loudest crowd noise at an outdoor stadium with a peak decibel reading of 142.2.
