Last week, Kansas City proved that their offense is just as potent as it every was. Tennessee proved that they can hang with anyone in the league and their defense is top-tier. This matchup is an interesting one to gauge because of the conflicting styles on both sides of the ball. The dangerous Chiefs offense will square off against a Titan defense that was able to contain the Ravens and Patriots so far in the playoffs, and will be hoping to do the same against the Chiefs. The Titans offense, though potent, is not as explosive as Kansas City. Rather than put up chunk plays and score at any moment, they choose to grind it out and dominate the clock with their running game. That running game continues to get stronger throughout the game, as Derrick Henry has looked like a boy among men in the playoffs. I think that the Chiefs will end up coming out on top in this game. Their offense is just too good to be held down when it matters most. That doesn’t mean that the Titans will be going down without a fight. I fully anticipate a close game that is played at the Titans pace. Chiefs win. Titans cover. Smash the Under.
Straight Up Pick: Kansas City Chiefs
Against the Spread: Tennessee Titans +8
Over/Under: UNDER 53
