Chiefs over Titans
Very shortly, you’ll see me praise the Titans. How can I not?

Unfortunately, my affinity for them ends in a tough road matchup against Kansas City. We saw the full force of the Chiefs when they stormed back from a very early 24-point deficit against Houston.
However, anything can happen in the playoffs. Maybe I’m biased towards the higher-ranked team. Maybe I’m putting too much faith into quarterback play. Maybe I’m counting on home-field advantage to finally take a toll on Tennessee.
What is it with the Chiefs and the AFC South, anyways? Their three losses in the regular season came to AFC South teams. They won their season opener against Jacksonville, 40-26, by the way.
When Kansas City and Tennessee face off on Sunday, it will be a matchup of two very different teams. A pass-happy team with not much of a run game and an inconsistent defense (despite its big-named players) versus a run-happy team who don’t rely much on passing yet feature a sturdy, underrated defense.
This won’t be Mahomes versus Tannehill, as all big matchups are wrongfully resorted to be quarterback versus quarterback. This will be a matchup of old-school versus new-school, and I’m all here for it.
