Kansas City Chiefs NFL

Three reasons why the Chiefs will defeat the Titans in the AFC Championship Game

Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes has put the whole league on notice the last two years and plans on being the best quarterback until he retires. He showed just that last Sunday against Houston, with being the youngest quarterback ever to throw for five touchdown passes in a playoff game. His ability to make plays has everyone speechless every week, and everyone expects the team to ride this momentum into the AFC Championship game against Tennessee. The last time he faced the Titans he threw for 446 yards and three touchdowns. I highly expect for Mahomes and the Chiefs to come out firing on all cylinders and to put the bad start they had last week behind them.

Explosive Offense

The Chiefs by far have the most explosive offense in the NFL. Not only do they have the best quarterback, but they have too many weapons around Mahomes to help the offense but points on the board. Tyreek Hill is not only one of the best receivers in the league but the faster player in the NFL. Teams have a hard time covering him so in order to try and stop him they have had to double team him on plays. That just creates more space for Travis Kelce, Mecole Hardman, Sammy Watkins, Demarcus Robinson, and Damien Williams. That gives Andy Reid all the fun in the world to create crafty plays for everyone. The Titans did not do a good job of containing Hill the last time they played. He caught 11 passes for 157 yards and one touchdown. Now that the Chiefs are at home and have a chance to get to the Super Bowl you can bet that they will use every option they have.

Tennessee Defense

Even though the Titans have been on a hot streak lately, they still haven’t been able to figure out some issues on defense. They allowed 25.1 points per game (10th worst in the NFL) and 362.8 yards per game (12th worst in the NFL). Now they could be worse, but when you come and play Kansas City you better be ready to see some points given up. As I mentioned earlier that Mahomes was able to throw all over Tennessee in Week 10, I fully except him to do the same come Sunday. The Chiefs defense will have their hands full with Derrick Henry, but as long as they can at least slow him down I expect Kansas City to be playing in Miami for a chance at a Super Bowl win.
