Patriots defensive snaps: A four-CB dime package helped match up better against the Chiefs' dynamic weapons, which led to safety Duron Harmon playing just two snaps in a notable change. The 52 snaps were the third fewest this season (48 and 49 vs. Miami).

Patriots offensive snaps: They ran 97 plays, which is astounding. The season high was 83 (vs. Colts, Chargers). Rob Gronkowski played all 97 and left it all on the field in one of his best games of the season.
