FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The previous time Patriots quarterback Tom Brady opened a season at home against Kansas City in 2008, it ended with him limping off the field with a season-ending knee injury.

Now nine years removed from the most significant injury of his career, Brady said it is the furthest thing from his mind as New England prepares to host the Chiefs on Thursday night.

“Yeah, I didn’t think about that,” Brady said Monday. “Time flies.”
