Titans Look for Third Playoff Upset, Take on Chiefs in AFC Championship

Bill Enright

After upsetting the Patriots in New England and the Ravens in Baltimore, the Titans are once again road underdogs, this time in Kansas City for the AFC Championship

Titans are a team of DESTINY

Coming into the post-season with a 9-7 record the Titans earned a Wildcard spot as the sixth seed in the AFC. They went into New England and beat the Patriots. Then they defeated the Ravens in Baltimore. Now they will take on the Chiefs in Kansas City. They are the first sixth seed since 2010 to make it to the Conference Championship. 

NFL fans are falling in love with the Titans cinderella story.  Led by bruising running back Derrick Henry who ran for over 184 yards for the third straight game during the team's win over the Ravens, Tennessee is looking to make their first trip to the Super Bowl since 1999 (Kevin Dyson tackled on the one yard line). 

Titans Maven, David Boclair, has joined us to preview each of the Titans match-ups and while he predicted the upset in New England, no one, including Boclair thought the Titans could take down the mighty Ravens. 

But what does Boclair think about this match-up against the Chiefs? 

We looked back at the regular season when Tennessee hosted the Patrick Mahomes led squad in Week 10 and Boclair pointed at the dominance of Henry. The NFL's leading rusher gained 188 yards on the ground and scored twice during that victory over the Chiefs. Boclair says the Titans will once again ride Derrick Henry against the Chiefs Defense that allowed the 7th most rushing yards per game according to our partners at FantasySP.

I was pretty disappointed with the loss to KC. I think Tenn has such a solid team and great potential heading into the 2020 season. I think it was just time for Andy Reid to finally win a SB, if there is anyone who deserves it, it is him.

Yes, I believe the MinnTitans probably will win and besides they are fun to watch.

Having just toppled what might soon be considered the “legacy” juggernaut of the AFC in the Patriots in the Wild Card game Saturday night, the Titans now take on their next challenge – the potential new kings of the AFC in the Ravens. Tennessee’s win over New England in the hallowed postseason ground of Gillette Stadium should undoubtedly give them a healthy dose of confidence. So, too, should the way they’ve played overall since Ryan Tannehill took over at quarterback for Marcus Mariota beginning in partway through a Week 6 matchup against the Broncos.

However, on paper, Tennessee is up for its biggest challenge yet. The Ravens were not only the league’s best offense this season, they complemented it on the other side of the ball with one of the league’s premier defenses. Then, they’ll naturally come into this matchup with one-week rest advantage on the Titans. And, it could almost be termed a two-week edge, as many of Baltimore’s key players sat out the Week 17 win over the Steelers.
