Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the New England Patriots are firmly in control in the AFC Championship Game.

The Patriots scored a touchdown on their opening drive, with Sony Michel leading the rushing attack while Tom Brady carved the defense with efficiency. Just before the half, they managed to score another one off a Brady pass to Phillip Dorsett.

The Chiefs managed to make a few big passing plays thanks to quarterback Patrick Mahomes, but were unable to break onto the scoreboard before the half ended.

ESPN’s computer model has released its prediction for the second half of the Chiefs-Patriots game.

ESPN’s computer model believes that New England has this game on lock. The computer model gives the Patriots a 84.5 percent chance to win the AFC Championship Game.

The Patriots are playing in their eighth straight AFC title game and are seeking their third straight trip to the Super Bowl.

The Chiefs, on the other hand, have not been to the Super Bowl since their AFL days in 1969.

Mahomes and the Chiefs have their work cut out for them in the second half.

New England leads the Chiefs 14-0 going into the second half.

The game is being played on CBS.
