The Chiefs have a prime-time scouting opportunity for their next opponent: The Tennessee Titans play host to the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football in a matchup of teams that lost to the Chiefs in the last two AFC Championship Games.
Kansas City, coming off a 31-13 victory at Washington, visits Tennessee on Sunday for a noon kickoff.
The Titans’ style hasn’t changed. They lead with running back Derrick Henry, who went into Week 6’s games leading the NFL with 640 rushing yards, 765 all-purpose yards and seven rushing touchdowns.
Henry has faced the Chiefs four times in his career and has done damage. In a 2017 wild card playoff game at Arrowhead, he went for 156 yards, averaging 6.8 per carry. Tennessee overcame a 21-3 deficit to win 22-21 that day.
Henry rushed for 188 yards (8.2 yards per carry) in a 2019 Titans victory during the regular season.
The only Chiefs victory over a Henry-led Titans team came in the AFC Championship Game following the 2019 regular season. He was held to 69 yards on 19 attempts in that one.
Maybe he’ll be tired on a short week.
