That was the story of the game when the Tennessee Titans hosted the Kansas City Chiefs. On Oct. 6, the Chiefs improved to 5-0 following a 26-10 victory. After committing zero giveaways in their first four games, the Titans surrendered three of them in this game. The first one came before the offense took the field. After Darius Reynaud didn’t field a punt, the football hit Damian Williams‘ foot. He kicked it into the end zone. Marcus Cooper recovered it for a quick 7-0 Chiefs lead.
The Chiefs didn’t bring their best stuff. Despite that, they made enough plays and capitalized on the Titans’ mistakes. Jamaal Charles rushed for more than 100 yards. Their highlight may have come when, during the second quarter, the defensive line stood tall for four consecutive plays when the Titans were at the Chiefs’ one-yard-line. The Titans failed to score on that drive. The Chiefs answered with a field goal and a 13-0 halftime lead.
Let’s check out some of the Titans’ studs and duds from this Week 5 matchup. We’ll conclude with a grade for the pass offense, run offense, pass defense, run defense and special teams.
