Final Score: Chiefs 10 Patriots 17
Up until this play, Tom Brady hadn't missed a single start since becoming the starter for New England. At the time, his 110 consecutive starts were the third-most among active NFL quarterbacks. Bernard Pollard ended that quickly by landing his weight on the side of Brady's leg, tearing the ACL and putting the star QB on the sideline for the rest of the year. Coincidentally, backup QB Matt Cassel went on to prove himself a worthy player that year and later signed with none other than the Chiefs. We smell a conspiracy.
