Joshua: Which player on Tennessee’s roster do you believe has the potential to hurt the Chiefs the most on Sunday?

Ben: Ryan Fitzpatrick.
For one, Fitzpatrick has the Chiefs number. He’s 4-1 with an 8-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his career against the Chiefs. Most recently he beat us 35-17 in week two of last season while with an awful Buffalo team. He’s seen a lot of us and had success, which can only help him on Sunday.
Fitzpatrick also means an opportunity to change what Tennessee does on offense. One would assume the Titans would adjust their offense to fit Fitzpatrick’s strengths. This makes it harder for the Chiefs to prepare for what Tennessee is going to do. Given Fitzpatrick’s experience, he may be operating with more advantages than most backup quarterback.
Jake Locker would have been a better match-up for Kansas City.
