Week 5 of the 2013-14 NFL season. How many critics had the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans combining for a 7-1 record? Even with weak schedules, both teams have performed well when the masses picked against them. The Chiefs even won their Week 3 brawl against Andy Reid’s former employer, the Philadelphia Eagles.
It would’ve been great to see these teams punch it out at full strength. Unfortunately, Jake Locker will miss at least the next three games with a hip injury.
