    Here's how I see it --

    Offense
    QB - KC (Smith has familiarity with his system after 4 games, Fitz has 1 week to prepare)
    RB - KC (Charles gets the nod 'til CJ has a CJ-like game)
    OL - Titans (Titans dominate here as they are better at every position)
    TE - Titans (Walker is better then any of your backups though McGrath played well last week)
    WR - Titans (Bowe is the best WR on both teams, but KC lacks depth thus edge Titans)

    Defense
    DL - TN (Poe and Casey are having great years, but Devito and Jackson < Morgan, Pito, Klug, Wimbley, Ayers).
    LB - KC. Chiefs win this by a long shot. Hali and Houston are both forces, Houston is on fire. Jordan and Johnson can both ball. Fouku hasn't played well, but Ayers/ZB have shown flashes of brillance, but also make bonehead players time to time. Big nod to KC.
    CB - TN. Verner is playing the best ball of any corner in the league, that simple and McCourty is also having a good year. Flowers not being 100% really hurts, as Duanta is washed up - still like Smith though
    S - KC. Berry is a top-10 safety and Kendrick is legit also. Griffin is so up and down and Pollard in coverage is awful.

    Special Teams
    KC - McClusters return last week was SICK

    KC = 5
    TN = 5

    I'd put the Chiefs as favorites to win this game, but not by much. Having Locker out is a huge loss, but Fitz has had success vs KC. Thing is, Titans are winning by controlling TOP and limiting turnovers, Fitz was known for throwing picks. CJ needs to have a big day, and he's yet to do that this year, can't rely on him. I'm still saying 20-17 Titans.

    You mean the 2-2 Cowboys, wins versus the 0-4 Giants and 1-3 Rams? The Cowboys who lost to the Chargers, a team we've beat this year?

    The fact that you Chiefs fan are thinking you'll steamroll us is funny. Newsflash: You haven't played anyone worthy. The NFC East is way down this year, worst division in football. Don't get cocky that you're 4-0 and sleep on the Titans, we can ball also, even without Locker. My bestfriend is a Chiefs fan & dear god do I hope we beat you all - can't listen to him rave over Andy Reid anymore.

    Cowboys averaging 26 PPG, scored 16 on the Chiefs.

    Eagles averaging 25 PPG, scored 16 on the Chiefs.

    Jaguars averaging 8 PPG, scored 2 on the Chiefs.

    Giants averaging 15 PPG, scored 7 on the Chiefs.

    Doesn't that deserve as much mention? Regardless of how awful their opponents may or may not be, the Chiefs D makes them look worse than anyone else has.

    You're the one positing the "we beat this team, who beat that team, who blah blah blah" argument, and Chiefs fans are delusional? By your logic everyone who beat a team that beat the Ravens last year should be waiting on a Super Bowl trophy.

    Matchups matter. San Diego matches up well with Dallas, who matches up well with KC. That does not mean that the Chargers can hang with the chiefs as closely as Dallas did. They can't.

    You act like any of the teams you've beaten will be in the playoffs this year...
