Tennessee has become a beloved underdog in these NFL playoffs, as it’s a pretty implausible scenario that they’ve been so dominant against the elite competition of the league. Here we are though, and the Titans are imposing their run-first will on everybody that comes their way.
As for the Chiefs, their big comeback versus Houston was the stuff of NFL legend, and they’re riding high with a seven-game win streak. KC’s last loss was to—guess who—-the Titans, however. In any case, this should be a great game, and the line seems thick enough for Tennessee to get in there.
