FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – There weren’t too many bright spots for the New England Patriots’ defense during a 27-point blowout to Kansas City. The fact that it occurred in a Monday night game is one small positive. Kansas City’s 41-14 dismantling of the Patriots in front of a national audience left New England with a short week to prepare for its next opponent and mere hours to forget one of the more embarrassing losses in franchise history before shifting attention to the undefeated Cincinnati Bengals. “It was a terrible loss for us, but at the same time, it was a short week, we had to move on,” Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis said. “It’s not like it was Sunday and then we had an extra day to look at the film and had a whole day to really think about it. We had to move on fast to Cincinnati.” So the Chiefs, officially, are in New England’s rearview mirror.
