Former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson predicts his old team will beat the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game to advance to the Super Bowl.
Former NFL running back Chris Johnson is clearly a believer in his old team. He thinks the Tennessee Titans will pull off yet another upset in the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs to advance to the Super Bowl.
The Titans have already pulled off two stunning victories to get to where they are, first against the New England Patriots in the Wild Card round, and then versus the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional round.
By the way, CJ2K predicted both of those wins would happen.
When asked what he thought would happen this Sunday by TMZ Sports, Johnson said he believes the Titans are going to upend the Chiefs and go to the Super Bowl.
"“Man, listen, the Ravens had a explosive offense as well,” CJ tells us. “We went in there and we did what we had to do. We held them to 12 points. so, we gon’ do the same thing this week.”“Man, we going to go in there and do our thing again. we gon’ play good defense, we gon’ run the ball and this week, we gon’ get some receivers (to) step up and make some plays.”“We gon’ get this game plan together. get it right. we go do what we gotta do.”"
Hopefully, Johnson is right again, although there are some out there who are on the opposite side of the spectrum, as FS1’s Nick Wright, who is a Chiefs fan, thinks KC will “annihilate” Tennessee.
Johnson was a first-round pick of the Titans in the 2008 NFL Draft and played with the franchise for six seasons, with his most infamous campaign coming in 2009 when he rushed for over 2,000 yards.
He was also a member of the 2008 Titans team that was the No. 1 seed and lost in the Divisional round to the Ravens, so the victory this past weekend was especially sweet for the former Titans back.
Tennessee and Kansas City will square off this Sunday at 2:05 p.m. CST at Arrowhead Stadium for a chance to play in Super Bowl LIV.
