These three Kansas City Chiefs need to step up if they want to make it past the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.

It has been an interesting year for the Kansas City Chiefs. After winning five of their first seven games, the Chiefs proceeded to lose four out of their last five. Many began to wonder if Kansas City was a flash in the pan. However, Alex Smith and company won their last four games of the season and appear to be firing on all cylinders heading into the playoffs. That is not good news for the rest of the league.

Winning is easy when you have one of the most potent offenses in all of football. Kansas City had a little bit of everything on the team. From fast running backs to a quarterback that could manage games with the best of them, Kansas City always finds ways to win. However, under the tutelage of head coach Andy Reid, they have never made it to the Super Bowl.

Of course, they mantra “One game at a time” is very important here. However, you have to think that is weighing on their minds as they prepare to take on the Tennessee Titans Saturday.

With that in mind, we take a look at three key players that need to perform well if the Chiefs want to beat the Titans
