The New England Patriots are playing in their eighth straight AFC Championship game. The Kansas Chiefs haven't reached the conference championship in 25 years. If Tom Brady and the Patriots want to return to the Super Bowl for the third straight year, they'll need to win on the road at Arrowhead Stadium, one of the most difficult places in the NFL to play. And they'll need to find a way to slow down the high-flying Chiefs offense led by second-year QB Patrick Mahomes. Here's how you can watch the game if you don't have cable.
