New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says the 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs is horrible but he still has faith the team will turn its season around.

The Patriots fell to 2-2 on Monday night in only the third game Bill Belichick has lost by at least 27 points in his 336 games as an NFL head coach.

The offense struggled to move the ball and the defense that had been stingy couldn't stop the Chiefs from reeling off long gains.

Now, the Patriots must prepare to face the AFC's only unbeaten team when Cincinnati visits on Sunday night. The Patriots will have one less day than usual to prepare, while the Bengals are coming off a bye.
