There's more to a season than one play, but this play is the difference between the game being played in NE and KC. Heck, I'd be happy for this game to be played in Miami as the Patriots are definitely jinxed here.

SB Nation wrote:
The Chiefs will face the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game in a rematch of New England’s buzzer-beating Week 6 win. But with a spot in the Super Bowl on the line, Kansas City will have one major advantage — and it’s all thanks to Rob Gronkowski’s inability to make a tackle.

The 2019 AFC Championship Game will take place in the hostile, frozen environment of Missouri’s Arrowhead Stadium thanks to the Chiefs’ status as the conference’s top seed — a designation made possible, in part, to one play. Kenyan Drake’s lateral-assisted dash to the end zone delivered the Patriots their fourth of five losses on the season. And it probably wouldn’t have happened if All-Pro safety Devin McCourty and not tight end Gronkowski were serving as New England’s last line of defense.

The Miami Miracle isn’t the only reason why Kansas City reigned over the rest of the AFC, but it played a bigger role than any other single play over the rest of 2018’s 17-week season. With one 69-yard play, the Dolphins stole a win from the Patriots’ ledger — a win that would loom large over the rest of the season. A 12-4 New England team would have taken the top seed in the conference by virtue of its Week 6 win over the Chiefs. An 11-5 team had to sweat out an Eagles win over the Texans just to earn a first-round bye.

Once again we softened them up for someone else to beat in the playoffs. We own them.

Don’t think we hurt them much! Also gives me hope that our new head coach gave up 31 points!

I think its Flores' input which propelled them to win this game. I think Belechick suffers greatly with out him.

I should have bet the farm on the Pats winning the overtime coin toss. I know they are good but their luck never ends.

Refball was in full effect for both games. The non pi call in New Orleans, but Brady getting grazed on the helmet is roughing the passer? Go puck yourself NFL
