Takeaways from a frenzied Sunday night in Massachusetts:
At Fenway, the Red Sox got away with one. The Price start and the Kimbrel close were shaky, but in between Barnes, Braiser and Porcello were nearly perfect.
JBJ, Mookie and Raffy Devers came through when it counted most.
And it still baffles me that Brock Holt is not starting at second base. Ian Kinsler is 0 for the playoffs! What gives?
In Foxboro, the Pats and the Chiefs gave us an instant classic for the ages – the first 43-40 outcome in NFL history.
Tom Brady is still the best quarterback on the planet but Patrick Mahomes, the second, will be fun to watch for a long time.
After a slow start, we are now seeing what the Patriots saw to make Sony Michel a first round pick.
And I don’t think anyone would mind seeing a Patriots/Kansas City matchup in the A.F.C. title game.
