The Postgame: Chiefs Stay Perfect with Win Over Titans


Score: Chiefs 26, Titans 17

It was over when: Quintin Demps picked off a tipped pass with 2:39 remaining in the game. Ryan Succop would hit a 48-yard field goal to put the game out of reach.

Player of the Game: Jamaal Charles. The dude was the entire offense today. Without him and the defense the Chiefs don’t win the game.

Fun Stat: 5-0!!!




1. Goal-line Stand

Four times Tennessee had the ball on the one-yard-line. Four times they were stopped. That’s the play of the game, no question.

2. Dontari Poe

Poe was a beast in the middle once again. The only thing that worked for Tennessee were broken plays that turned big. KC’s success on defense began and ended with Poe.

3. Marcus Cooper

Cooper is quickly becoming the Chiefs third best cornerback. His ceiling is growing by the game.


1. Offensive Red Zone Woes

Not having Anthony Fasano was a killer for the Chiefs in the red zone. Play-calling was a factor, too. Getting healthy and having a better scheme should help.

2. Penalties

The officiating crew was awful, yes, but the false starts and holdings were not the fault of the officials. This is something that has to be fixed before KC plays Houston and Denver.

3. Third Down

Kansas City was 1-12 on third down today. Much of that was because the passing game simply did not exist on third down. Again, not having Anthony Fasano was a problem for the Chiefs, and the second half injury to Donnie Avery was not helpful either.


Kansas City will host the Oakland Raiders next Sunday at noon.
