During the Chiefs three-game winning streak to close the season before they pulled starters, Hunt had at least 24 attempts and a rushing touchdown in each contest. Many began to wonder if Kansas City was a flash in the pan. He's got a pretty good feel for the pass game.
Meanwhile, the Chiefs have failed to cover the spread six of the previous seven times they have closed as favorites, and they have lost 10 of 11 SU and ATS in the playoffs overall. Now they are at home for the Wildcard round of the playoffs and are hosting a Titans team that has had some issues finding out who they are.
Everyone in Chiefs Kingdom is excited for the Kansas City Chiefs right now.
PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Titans QB Marcus Mariota. "I've been working hard this week and trying to get better than I was last week and looking forward to the game on Saturday". While the New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings enjoy a week off, the remaining teams go head-to-head in the Wild Card round. Jackson led Tennessee with 17 passes broken up.
"They do a great job of taking care of the football and they do a great job of taking it away", Mularkey said. This is his first playoff game, and quarterbacks are ultimately judged in the postseason. They will also improve their home games against the Titans to 19-10 all time.
The time for the NFL's "Second season" has arrived and this year the Kansas City Chiefs are again one of 12 teams playing in the playoffs. Starting cornerback Logan Ryan and Da'Norris Searcy both missed practice Wednesday with an illness. Up first is an AFC match between two towering teams, as the Tennessee Titans head to Arrowhead Stadium to meet the Kansas City Chiefs on their home turf. He doesn't believe postseason experience makes much of a difference in matchup such as this. "I think everything kind of intensifies and guys understand every play counts", he said, per the team's official website. Those since have been remedied, and the Patriots enter the playoffs with a very different defense than the one that was shredded during the first weeks of the regular season. Tennessee still trails Kansas City 14-3. The Titans victory also came in the December cold weather and still is the Chiefs' only December home loss in the team's last 10 December games.
"It would be nice to break that but you can't add any extra motivation once you get to this stage", Smith said.
