Chiefs will win this but it won't be easy. Tannehill won't be able to get away with throwing for 100 Yards and 1 TD against that team. KC will stack the box against them to maintain what Henry does. That will force Tannehill to have to make key plays for them to win. I don't see it. KC struggles to stop the run but they can live with Henry getting like 110 yards as long as he doesn't go 190.

This looks like Titan's year.  The year of the Cinderella team.....Won't be surprise if the Titans pull it out.  Everyone thought, the Ravens was going to walk all over the Titans, but Coach Vrable  did his homework and came out with an excellent game plan. I say Titans over the Chiefs, might be close though.

My brother is a lifelong KC fan and he’s scared of the Titans.

As he should be.

I saw a press conference with Mike Vrabel after the Wild Card game, and he said something to the effect of how much he appreciated his players who "allowed me to coach them up hard". He was always a hard-nosed player, and that is translating into his coaching style. In just two years under Vrabel, the Titans have gone from "doormat of the AFC South" to a team that has at least a shot at a Super Bowl. They're no longer a joke, folks!

I think defensively the Titans have exactly what it takes to eliminate the chiefs, but more will be needed from the passing game to secure the victory for the Titans.

 

I am cheering on the titans to eek in to the SuperBowl!

Titans at Chiefs 

 

Thoughts?

The Ravens only lost because of bad turnovers and Lamar becoming oddly inconstant. Mahomes is definitely no Lamar and can beat you in so many ways. That said if the chiefs can avoid the give away like they did in the first half vs Houston plus stop Henry then this will be another blow out win for them

I thought after 66 carries for nearly 400 yards in 2 weeks that henry would be too gassed to be effective in the 2nd half of the Ravens game... I was way wrong.  I'm not sure if there is a way to stop Henry this year.

 

That being said though, the Chiefs are much harder to game plan for than the Ravens.  For the Ravens you figure out a way to stop Jackson from running and make him beat you passing the ball.  In order to slow down Mahommes a team has to figure out a way to stop Kelce and Hill and Watkins and Williams.

After watching what the Titans have done the past two weeks against two very good run defenses, anything is possible.

 

They are confident, Henry is a beast, and they do just enough to win game now.  Chiefs have a poor run defense, so Henry will once again be a huge factor.  The Chiefs are tough at home, but so were the Pats and Ravens.

 

I expect KC to win, but won't be surprised if the Titans win this one, too.

I’m pretty sure the Pats and Ravens tried this and it didn’t work.. well at least not for the Ravens hard say the Pats D failed giving up only 14 points but the man got 165 yards still.

Chiefs have to score early and often and make tannehill  beat them.  Titans have to run the ball and keep Mahomes on sideline

I think the Chiefs win this game.

I think I'm rooting for the Titans to win, but I'm torn because a Chiefs/49rs Super Bowl would be good.

Geeze.. The cardinals going back to the superbowl soon?

 

The whole NFC west has been to the superbowl in the past 10 years. It's crazy

Yep. They won't make mistakes like the Texans did, play sound special teams and clock control. Mahomes will have to put up points in the low 20s in the 6 to 7 limited possessions he will likely get. If Mahomes gets more than 24 points, there is a good chance the Chiefs win. Otherwise, it will be shaky.

 

#6 seeds in championship games recently (AFC and NFC):

 

2005 Steelers - won an afternoon AFCCG vs Broncos, won the SB

2008 Ravens - lost in a night time AFCCG to a Polamalu pick six vs Steelers in Flacco's rookie year

2008 Eagles - lost in an afternoon NFCCG to Kurt Warner and the Cardinals

2010 Packers - won an afternoon NFCCG vs Bears, won the SB

2010 Jets - lost in a night time AFCCG to Steelers and Big Ben

 

Since 2004 (chose 2004 since no team has gone back-to-back since then), the team that wins the night time championship game has won the SB outside 3 occasions (twice, a #6 seed made the SB, once it was the vaunted Broncos' D that bucked the trend for Peyton). 2005, 2010, 2015 (year of the regular season).

 

2004 Patriots

2005 Steelers (day time AFCCG)

2006 Colts

2007 Giants

2008 Steelers

2009 Saints

2010 Packers (day time NFCCG)

2011 Giants

2012 Ravens

2013 Seahawks

2014 Patriots

2015 Broncos (day time AFCCG)

2016 Patriots

2017 Eagles

2018 Patriots

 

So, based on this, 2020 regular season will be the year the day time championship game winner or a #6 seed will win it all, Titans missed by 1 year, LOL. :) 

 

Also, based on this, the winner of the 49ers-Packers night time championship game will win it all. It is destiny!!! :)

Mahomes reminds me the closest of Peyton, with his ability to put up points and getting the offensive excitement back in the league, would like to watch him in the SB, Titans in the SB would not be as exciting to me to watch with my team not in it.

 

Hence I will root for Mahomes to make it. NFC, I really don't care. I can only imagine it being called a State Farm SB if both Mahomes and Rodgers make it, would be weird. :)

I want the Chiefs to win and have a feeling they will pull it off. Henry I expect to have 30 carries 170+ yards but the play of Tannehill will be the deciding factor.

The Chiefs run unfortunately ends in the SB, if my pattern prediction is true.

    • Burrow was not thought of this highly early(when Ballard was rumored to like Herbert and Love). It was kind of an avalanche that was gaining more and more mass and power the more games got played. I don't think it was until November-December that people started talking about Burrow as a no. 1 pick. He just never had that body of work before this year and a lot of his most impressive games and against best opponents were at the end of the year.        I've heard Brady thrown around, but no idea if there is anything real behind those rumors. The rumors say that they are having hard time attracting any fans to their games and their owners think getting a legend like Brady to play for several years for them might jump start their new fanbase in LA. No idea whether to believe this or not. 
    • To me being a boom or bust is kind of a plus for a QB, because the worst you can be is mediocre once that rookie contract comes to an end. I would prefer for whoever we draft to be either great or horrible and for us to know relatively quickly so we can either invest in him or move on quickly. This is part of the appeal with Love for me. The things he needs to improve are heavily coaching based and I think we will have a good idea of where on the spectrum he will end up pretty quickly. For example - if you draft him and he's not ready to start by year 2, this is a red flag and you might start looking for another one. If 2 off-seasons and 1 in-season period are not enough for your coaching staff to get him ready you either have made a mistake with the draft pick or with your coaching staff and I do have good trust in the coaching staff so... 
    • For me the tiers are more important the the specific ranking... I rank players within a tier very similarly and even though I would have preferences within them, I don't feel strongly enough to argue one over the other.    Tier 1(sell the farm for him - i.e. multiple 1sts, multiple day 2 picks, etc) Burrow   Tier 2 (trade a significant asset for him - i.e. a future 1st round pick) Tua(if I have medical guarantees he'd be alright health-wise)   Tier 3 (trade a medium level asset for him(i.e. a second, a third...) or take him at #13) Love Herbert Tua(if our medical staff cannot give you any guarantees whatsoever either way -for example, there were some reports that it might be too early before the draft to tell whether he will be good or not)   Tier 4 (second round) Eason Fromm     Tier 5 (third-fourth round) Gordon(have to do more work on him, might change his ranking) Hurts   Tier 6 (round 5-7) Tua(if the medicals come bad and there is high risk of reinjury/retirement/not full recovery/etc.) Tyler Huntley Nate Stanley     I'm still watching some QBs so that's not my final ranking. 
    • Hey....    we’ve all had those whoops moments.    Comes with the territory.    I’ve had some whoppers!
