Tom Brady and Gronk’s connection for the first touchdown put the Tampa Bay Buccaneers up against the Chiefs 7-3. It could put the Buccaneers in a supreme position. The Buccaneers currently have a pretty solid defense in the NFL, and will be motivated to defend their own end zone going forward. But keeping the best offense in the league in the form of the Chiefs will be tough.

Right now, the Kansas City Chiefs will have to rally in order to come back into the game. The Chiefs, as of this writing are still looking for their first touchdown in the game. They will want to capitalize on their opportunities and not fall behind to the Buccaneers. Now the cards are in the hands of star quarterback Patrick Mahomes to get the team going.

The defending champions are now on the backfoot and they must rally in order to overcome the home team.  The Buccaneers defense is one of the grittiest in the league. And with the stakes this high and a marginal lead to defend, you can assume that they will throw the house at the Chiefs in order to not let them take the lead.
