Why the Chiefs can cover

Kansas City has an improved pass rush this season. Last year, the Chiefs finished the regular season with just 31 sacks; only three teams had fewer. But this year, led by Chris Jones (five sacks), Kansas City has 19 sacks, which ranks 13th in the league.

In addition, the Chiefs face a Tennessee team whose starting quarterback may be out or limited. Ryan Tannehill missed last week’s game against the Texans with a sprained ankle and sat out Thursday’s practice with the same ailment. Backup quarterback Malik Willis, a rookie, completed just 6-of-10 passes for 55 yards and an interception in his start last week. See which team to back here.

Why the Titans can cover

Running back Derrick Henry has a history of success against Kansas City. The 6-foot-3, 247-pound Henry has averaged 111.4 rushing yards per game and 5.4 yards per carry against the Chiefs. He has run for more than 150 yards in two of his five games against Kansas City.

In addition, Tennessee faces a Chiefs defense that will not have one of its top players in Frank Clark. A three-time Pro Bowler, Clark will miss the next two games after being suspended for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. He ranks third on the Chiefs in sacks (three) and had been coming off his most productive game of the season, a 1.5-sack effort against the 49ersSee which team to back here.
