New England Patriots play in their eighth straight AFC Championship game. The Kansas Chiefs have not reached the conference championship in 25 years. If Tom Brady and Patriots want to return to the Super Bowl for the third straight year, they must win on the road at Arrowhead Stadium, one of the hardest places in the NFL to play.
