Patriots coach wary of Chiefs offense ahead of Sunday night game

Foxborough, USA, Oct 10 (efe-epa).- The head coach of the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick, said Wednesday that he was concerned with the quality of the Kansas City Chiefs offense, ahead of their matchup this week.

The Chiefs have started the season on fire, winning the opening five games thanks to a hugely potent offense, led by second year quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his plethora of attacking weapons.

"They're all dangerous," Belichick told a press conference.

"You can't stop one guy in this offense. They've got too many guys. The quarterback is a problem. The backs are a problem. The tight ends are a problem. The receivers are a problem. They're all a problem."

Mahomes, whom Belichick said "can throw the ball out of the stadium", leads the league for touchdown passes this season with 14.

The quarterback has a strong supporting cast in the shape of running back Kareem Hunt, wide receivers Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins and Chris Conley, and star tight end Travis Kelce.

The Patriots coach reserved special praise for Hill, who in addition to the danger he poses on offense, is one of the most potent punt returners in the league.

"Yeah, it's a problem," Belichick said. "If you play off him, you give him too much space. Play up on him, he gets behind you. He's a hard guy to defend. The quarterback can throw it deep. He stretches the whole field."

After a slow start, the Patriots, who have made it to three of the last four Super Bowls, have shown signs in the last two games that they are beginning to click, particularly after welcoming back leading receiver Julian Edelman, following his four-game suspension.

The Patriots host the Chiefs on Sunday night.
