KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jamaal Charles returned from an injury to score three touchdowns, Tom Brady was picked off twice and the Kansas City Chiefs beat New England 41-14 on Monday night to hand Bill Belichick one of his worst losses as coach of the Patriots.
Charles, who missed last week’s win in Miami with a sprained ankle, ran for 92 yards and a score. He also caught two short TD passes from Alex Smith, who finished with 248 yards and three touchdowns through the air.
The Chiefs (2-2) ended a four-game skid at Arrowhead Stadium by handing the Patriots (2-2) their worst loss since losing to San Diego 41-17 in 2005.
Along with throwing two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown, Brady was strip-sacked by Tamba Hali to step up a field goal. Brady finished 14 of 23 for 159 yards.
