ESPN Says Winner Of Chiefs vs Titans Is Clear
ESPN says the winner of Chiefs vs Titans is clear.
Coming into this NFL season, the worldwide leader in sports developed a computer model to prognosticate upcoming games.
According to ESPN’s computer model, the Chiefs have a 75 percent chance of beating Tennessee this Sunday.
Fresh off an impressive victory over the Houston Texans last Sunday, Kansas City comes into this outing as a sizeable seven-point favorite.
On paper, the Chiefs would appear to have a significant talent advantage. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is one year removed from being the league’s MVP and is playing arguably his best football of the season right now.
Kansas City boasts more weapons on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball, and have the more experienced head coach in Andy Reid.
That said, there is just something special about this Titans squad.
Under Mike Vrabel, the team developed a grittiness and toughness that has allowed them to overcome blatant talent disadvantages at every turn.
Thus far, Tennessee has upset both the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens to get to this point.
With running back Derrick Henry playing like arguably the league’s most dominant offensive force right now, dismissing the Titans seems short sided.
A lot of this game will ultimately be decided by just how much attention the Chiefs defense feels it needs to pay to Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Over the past two games, he has thrown 29 passes for a grand total of 160 yards. That will simply not fly against a Mahomes-led group that can score in a hurry.
In order to keep the Kansas City defense honest, Tannehill is going to have to do some early damage. His ability to do so will likely determine who emerges from the AFC to play in the Super Bowl.
