FOXBORO -- Everyone remembers the last time the Patriots played the Chiefs in Kansas City.

In 2014, the Patriots were 2-1 going into Week 4 and they were blown out 41-14 on Monday Night Football. Ultimately, it was the turning point in the season as the team went on to win its next seven games on the way to winning the Super Bowl over the Seahawks.

Speaking Wednesday, Bill Belichick was asked about that game, but he predictably didn't want to get into it.

"Yeah, I don’t think that game has anything to do with this one," he said. "We’re going to get ready for Sunday."

On Mut & Callahan Monday, Tom Brady was asked about that game as well, but he had a different response.

“I just remember playing Cincinnati the next week after that game," he said. "We had some really emotional conversations as a team about getting our minds better prepared for what we were facing. That was great for that season. That is what we needed at the time. We turned that season around and turned it into something pretty special."

Brady and Belichick are certainly hoping for a different result this time around.
