    It's hard to say.. if Locker hadnt have gotten hurt I would say go all in for Tennessee to get a great win at home but now that he is out, Fitz is going to be the X factor. The Titans have actually been tested a little bit so far this season, KC has not really played anyone that can be called a test. I almost want to say maybe Dallas.. but I dont know about that one either.

    Kansas City throws a lot of short passes.

    Their average gain on a completion is 10.9 yards and quarterback Alex Smith's average yards per attempt is at 6.6. But a lot of those yards are after the catch, not before it.

    Their leading receiver is also their leading rusher, running back Jamaal Charles. His 23 catches are 10 more than any other member of the team.

    Our defense will have to keep them from being successful on doing this on offense.

    I would take Washington over Bowe any day. Bowe is in the conversation for the most overrated player in the league. He's been getting shut down all year. I think it will be hard for Smith to move the ball on us unless Charles has a really good day. This will come down to the play of Fitz. He even plays above average I think the game is ours. If he turns it over or can't get the ball moving we lose. I say Titans 20 Chiefs 10.

    Cheifs are not a 5-0 team. They would be beat by the raiders this week. Doesn't matter how much better we are.

    After reading what people are saying, Titan fans are giving little to no credit to the Chiefs. However, nor do I think they are superior by any means. But starting 4-0 after a 2-14 season is much improvement. Don't think by any means this is a walk in a park. Chiefs play good defense and don't turn the ball over. We play the exact same way and it is a big blow for us not having Locker. Again, I don't think Chiefs are a superior team by any means and the worse undefeated team out of the other undefeated teams but some fans make it seem like we are about to play the Jags.

    Now Chief fans are all fired up because they double their win column from a year ago and think they'll run through everyone. Don't get your heads too far up your a$$ now because we are no Jags either. We'll definitely get after you all game long, every phase of the game. We aren't 3-1 for the hell of it. Don't be surprise if we come smacking you guys around because we certainly will. I'm not afraid of the Chiefs offense at all. Only guy to worry about is Charles and if we can manage him then it will be a long day for the Chiefs offense.

    Both teams have good defenses but we have a bit more talent on offense so I would take the Titans offense to make a few more plays. Whoever makes the most plays win...

    He'll hand the Chiefs their first loss but it won't be easy.

    As a Chiefs fan I think this is a pretty good analysis...best I have seen.
    Either team can win this. The key to me is Fitz. The team will go as he goes. If he just runs the offense and doesn't try to do too much he should be okay. I do disagree with the Alex Smith statement. Since 2011 Smith is like 23-5-1 and has the fewest TO's of any starting QB. That is solid. Some guys turn a corner for some reason. The Titans Oline could also be huge. Ours is 2nd youngest in the NFL and at times they have struggled.

    That's the point dude, that's exactly what you're doing. Thinking for Chiefs are high and mighty because they beat the awful NFC East... that's a joke.

    Titans have to limit Smith's ability to clear the pocket and run on 3rd down....Titans have a tendency to vacate back into coverage off the line when we don't get pressure early. I liked how we kept Wilson in the game last week, basically playing him like a LB...have not seen 3 safeties in the game like that before and it paid off. Hope Williams has some plans for this game or we may be dinked and dunked to death.

    I love the three safety formation too. And it is perfect for the type of offense the Chiefs are running right now. My biggest fear though is what happens if one of those three is injured. Can we rely on Damian Stafford at this point to step in for one of these guys?

    I was specifically saying that, yes the NFC East is bad, but who have you guys beat that looks so unbeatable right now?
