The New England Patriots began the playoffs with an incredible opening drive.

After the Kansas City Chiefs won the opening toss and chose to defer, the Patriots got things going early with an 11-play, 80-yard touchdown drive with nothing but passes.

Tom Brady made a pair of huge third down passes, including one to Julian Edelman (who just returned from injury) and a 32-yard catch from Rob Gronkowski on 3rd-and-13. Gronk responded again with a touchdown grab in the corner of the end zone to quickly put New England on the board.

The Pats’ offense is terrifying at full strength.
