The last time Tom Brady and the Patriots went to Kansas City, it did not go well.

It was the 2014 season and the Patriots were blown out, 41-14, on Monday Night Football to fall to 2-2 on the year. After the game was the infamous question to Bill Belichick asking if he would be re-evaluating the quarterback position with Jimmy Garoppolo as the backup.

Of course, the Patriots used the game as a rallying point, as they went on to win the Super Bowl against the Seahawks.

Appearing on Mut & Callahan Monday morning, Tom Brady was asked what his memories from that game are?

“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."

The 41-year-old knows how big the game is this coming Sunday and none of what happens in the past matters.

"We have a great opportunity this week," Brady said. "Any time you get a chance to do this again, this is so hard to do. I have said it before, a thousand times, I see the effort the team puts in on a daily basis and I see the effort our coaches put in. It is pretty great to see. It is pretty great to be apart of and I just have a great appreciation for what it takes to be a NFL player and what it takes to go the distance like we have.

"Our families sacrifice a lot. Our fans are committed to us. We’ll go out to Kansas City and represent everyone as best we can possibly can. Hopefully we can put our best 60 minutes of football out there on the field and we’re playing for a championship.”

New England and Kansas City will meet Sunday night for the chance to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.
