Chiefs vs. Titans, Playoffs Wild Card Round
#1
The 10-6 AFC West Division Champion Chiefs host the 9-7 Tennessee Titans in Arrowhead at 3:25pm Saturday January 6th.  Home playoffs in the frigid weather. Love it!

Just so you know what we're up against.


(EDIT: Video was removed from YouTube. It was Mariota hilariously running into his RB face to face as the ball goes flying up into the air past them as the Jags scoop and score).

That was somehow part of a winning effort for the Titans against the playoff bound Jags (don't think they were resting any players either).

Now, here's where I mention that means the Titans D held the Jags O to 3 points in 12 drives. Statistically the Titans rank 17th in points defensively, 13th in yards, very average. So maybe it's just a case of facing the right team at the right time (Jags offense is not good), or maybe they're hitting their stride at the right time.

Offensively, the Titans are challenged. 19th ranked in points, 23rd in yards. Better at running than passing, but not really good at either. Titans don't take care of the ball and are -4 in turnover margin compared to KC at +15, second best in the league.

It's pretty weird to say this, or rather it would have been 6 months ago or even 1 month ago, but if this becomes a track meet I have a hard time seeing the Titans keep up with KC's offense. The defense will eventually force a stop or takeaway.

We took care of the playoff losing streak a couple years ago. Now, it's time to take care of a home playoff win. If the Chiefs play their A game, they can beat anybody.
