Chiefs vs Titans: TV Schedule, Live Stream, Time and Predictions

A couple of surprising teams are battling it out in Tennessee. The Kansas City Chiefs will take their undefeated record on the road and  will be looking to move to 5-0. They have been doing it with a strong defense and by protecting the football on offense.

The Titans will be entering the game without their starting quarterback and will have to rely on the shoulders of Ryan Fitzpatrick. They still have not committed a turnover on offense and that is a big reason why they are sitting with a winning record after the first quarter of the season.

Chiefs Player to Watch: Justin Houston

Justin Houston is playing at a level where writers are mentioning him as a defensive player of the year. He has helped the Chiefs defense to become one of the best at getting after the quarterback. He has 7.5 sacks this season and will be looking to get after Ryan Fitzpatrick this weekend to rough him up a little.

Titans Player to Watch: Bernard Pollard

Pollard plays pissed off all the time and this time he gets to face off against one of his former teams. He strikes fear in opposing players with his mean streak on the defensive side of the football. He is a ball hawk and will look to lay players out.

Matchup to Watch: Jamaal Charles vs Bernard Pollard

Jamaal Charles is a big part of the Kansas City Chiefs offense and Bernard Pollard will be keeping his eyes on him throughout the whole game. He will be looking to stop him in the running game and will look to sniff out any dump passes over in his direction. It will be interesting to see how these two do against each other throughout the game.

Prediction

It is tough to select the Chiefs on the road in this one, but they are undefeated and have the defense to pull this game out. I can’t pick against them just yet.  It definitely will be a close fight through out and will likely come down to the turnover game. If the Titans can stay away from the turnover still, then they could pull it off.  With Fitzpatrick throwing the football, I think that first turnover comes in this game.

Chiefs 20, Titans 17
