The Chiefs are going to turn into one of the more square teams of the weekend, and we’re going to be all over that for sure. QB Alex Smith and the gang are 4-0, but we aren’t all that impressed with any of those wins. Home victories against the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants aren’t all that notable, and the ‘W’s against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Philadelphia Eagles on the road are very blah as well. This is almost like a team in college that has played against an FCS team and three teams from the bottom of the MAC before getting into conference play. No one really knows just how good this team really is.
The Titans don’t have QB Jake Locker in this one, but we aren’t all that sure that there is that much of a drop off from Locker to QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick isn’t great by any stretch of the imagination, but the oddsmakers are insinuating that this is a game that he should be getting killed in. He didn’t look good last week against the New York Jets, but this is probably a much different team that he is going against and is one that doesn’t play defense nearly as well. If RB Chris Johnson can at least stick stride for stride with RB Jamaal Charles in this game, something that we think is entirely possible, the upstarts of the AFC South could end up pulling off a modest upset in this game of a previously unbeaten club.
