The story so far

Despite a savage schedule and ravaged by injuries, the Chiefs have found ways to win and make it to 6-3. Last week was a perfect case of this as the defence smothered a potent Vikings offence while the Chiefs offence made just enough big plays to win the game. It was a complete team performance and now we have Patrick Mahomes back. NFL, beware.

The Titans wins are against Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Atlanta and the Chargers. That’s 3 terrible and 1 bad teams there. They’ve had 3 games where they scored 7 or less points. The Chiefs offence is as healthy as it’s been since Week 1…

One to watch

Patrick Mahomes

Why wouldn’t you? You’ve been without him for 2 1/2 weeks. You want to see if he’s really healthy. You want to see him drop 28 points in a quarter. You’ve missed him more than you’re comfortable admitting. It’s ok, you’re amongst friends here.

 

Key Matchup

Honestly, there is nobody in this Titans line up that remotely troubles me.

What they said

Derrick Henry

“I think we all know it — we all have to have a sense of urgency,” Henry said. “We know what we are up against, we know what we have to do. So we have to have a sense of urgency every day, whether that is in meetings, in practice, in the weight room, just have a sense of urgency in all that we do.”

 

What we said

Patrick Mahomes

“We knew how we’ve kind of been doing the whole process of the injury in general is just seeing how I felt every single day,” Mahomes said when asked if he knew he’d be back this week. “I knew I had a chance once I kind of talked to those doctors and they said that as long as I was functioning well, moving well, that I could play this week. Coach Reid still wanted me to take it day by day. So I went out here and practiced, and took the reps and I haven’t had any pains or any setbacks.

“And so, as long as we keep going with that, I’m glad to be back out there.”

 

Odds

Chiefs by 5.5

Match points 49.5

Lots of alcohol consumed in Newcastle as the Chiefs Kingdom gathers to watch the Chiefs crush the Titans
