There are reasons for optimism and concern for the Tennessee Titans ahead of their AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs have taken very different roads to get to the AFC Championship Game, which takes place on Sunday at 2:05 p.m. CST.
The Chiefs finished with a 12-4 record and grabbed the No. 2 seed and a bye through the first round of the playoffs after the New England Patriots absolutely collapsed in Week 17. In the divisional round, the Chiefs crushed the Texans, 51-31, despite falling behind 24-0 early on.
The Titans were playing for their playoff lives in Week 17 and successfully defeated a Texans team that was sitting its starters in order to get into the playoffs at 9-7.
From there, the Titans defeated both the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots and the Super Bowl favorite Baltimore Ravens on the road in back-to-back weeks.
This will be the second meeting between these two teams this season. Back in Week 10, the Titans defeated the Chiefs on the strength of a blocked field goal at the end of regulation that sealed a 35-32 win for Tennessee.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at some reasons for optimism and concern for the Titans.
