Colts vs. Chiefs live stream: Watch AFC Divisional Round game online

Will the AFC still run through Arrowhead Stadium after Saturday?

The No. 1 seed Kansas City Chiefs host the red-hot Indianapolis Colts on Saturday afternoon in the first AFC Divisional Round matchup of the weekend.

New England Patriots fans will be pulling for an Indy upset: If the No. 6 seed Colts win and the Patriots beat the Los Angeles Chargers in their Divisional Round game Sunday, New England would have home-field advantage in the AFC Championship Game.

If the Chiefs take care of business, it means the winner of Patriots-Chargers will have to travel next weekend to Kansas City, where the Chiefs are 7-1 this season.

Kansas City is a 5.5-point home favorite thanks to its 12-4 regular season record, but no NFL team is hotter than the Colts, who knocked off the No. 3 Houston Texans in the AFC Wild Card Round and are 10-1 in their last 11 games.

Here's how and when to watch Colts vs. Chiefs online.

NFL draft prospect WR Hunter Renfrow had a dream about Tom Brady

NFL draft prospect WR Hunter Renfrow had a dream about Tom Brady

While there are a seemingly limitless number of factors that impact what teams prospective NFL players will land on, from a battery of tests at the combine, to interviews, to the whim of the draft, wide receiver Hunter Renfrow may have found a different way.

Renfrow, a 5'10" receiver from Clemson, reported having a dream that he was drafted by the Patriots, and was meeting with quarterback Tom Brady.

Renfrow explained to Scott Keepfer of The Greenville News:

"I would love to be a Patriot. Whoever gets me, that would be awesome," Renfrow said. "I had a dream I was a Patriot last night. It was the weirdest thing. I went to sleep and ... I was having a meeting with Tom Brady."

Renfrow's dreams may well prove prophetic. 

The receiver has been pegged by many as someone the Patriots would be interested in. While Renfrow is not expected to be drafted high, if at all, he has several characteristics that fit the bill of receivers that the Patriots tend to be interested in.

Renfrow played slot receiver at Clemson, and at 5'10," has a clear resemblance to the prototypical Patriots receiver: short, fast, and able to get open quickly.

Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Chris Hogan,  Chris Harper, Austin Collie, among others, fill out the laundry list of Patriots past and present who fit the mold of Renfrow.

Report: Contract details for Patriots' Maurice Harris, Terrence Brooks

Report: Contract details for Patriots' Maurice Harris, Terrence Brooks

Surprise, surprise: The New England Patriots are spending carefully in free agency.

Rather than dole out significant cash to one or two players, the Patriots' strategy to date has been to sign a handful of depth pieces at relatively low cost. On Tuesday morning, we got a look at the contract details of two such players.

First up: wide receiver Maurice Harris, who can earn up to $1 million this season, per ESPN's Mike Reiss.

According to Spotrac, Harris' $720,000 base salary in 2019 makes him the second-lowest-paid Patriots wide receiver, ahead of Damoun Patterson and just behind fellow newcomer Bruce Ellington, who carries a $895,000 base salary.

That contract suggests the 26-year-old Harris may have to compete for a roster spot during the preseason, especially if New England trades for a receiver of higher value.

New Patriots safety and expected special teams contributor Terrence Brooks, meanwhile, has the chance to earn a maximum of $4 million total a two-year contract, per The Boston Globe's Ben Volin.

Head coach Bill Belichick clearly values special teams, so it's not surprising the Patriots are willing to shell out north of $1 million guaranteed to two potential core special teamers in Brooks and running back Brandon Bolden.

New England's work isn't done on the special teams front, as it currently doesn't have a kicker or punter with Stephen Gostkowski and Ryan Allen still unsigned in free agency.
