It's Tuesday, which likely means Tom Brady will be sitting down with Bill Belichick to go over the gameplan for this week's AFC title game against the Chiefs.

It's been well-documented the two sit down for these weekly meetings to install things for the coming week (it was heavily featured in Belichick's "A Football Life" showing the 2009 season). Years later, it seems the two are still doing it.

“I love it. It’s what I love to do,” Brady said recently to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald. “It’s all football, it’s all preparation. We go awhile, an hour, two hours. It’s just a lot of talking about the opponent. It’s a lot of great insight. Everyone sees something different.”

Last week it was likely centered around Chargers defensive ends Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram, while this week it will be much different facing a Kansas City unit that is coming off its best game of the season allowing only 13 points to the Colts.

“It’s a get-ahead day. It’s talking about the opponent, their strengths and weaknesses, things we’ve seen,” Brady said. “We’ve both done a lot of film study, so we compare what we’ve seen, and what we think, and how we want to prepare going forward.”

Even with all the reported friction that occurred last season, these meetings still occurred, according to the story. These meetings now occur in the quarterbacks room, so Brian Hoyer and Danny Etling are also involved.

“We’ve been at it a long time,” Brady said. “So there’s a lot of consistency.”

Brady and Belichick will take on the Chiefs this Sunday for the right to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.
